In Fallout 76, the caps act as money. They can buy weapons, ammunition, armor and various drawings. More covers are needed to move around the map quickly. Consider a few ways to get covers.
Killing enemies and selling loot
One of the easiest ways to get the caps is to kill opponents and sell loot taken from them. Enemies in Fallout 76 are everywhere, but you won’t get much money this way, especially at the beginning of the game. The caps of the enemies in the inventory is usually only a small amount, and trash is not worth a lot. This is not enough to buy costly stimulants.
Periodically in various buildings, you will find caches with covers, but you need to look carefully in order not to miss them.
The map continually displays various random events, and you can perform them as many times as you want. At the same time, pay attention to the reward, do not repeat the tasks with a small number of caps as a reward. Some tasks are quite challenging to complete alone, and you may need a group. For such tasks, you can get from 20 caps. For convenience, you can camp around the event.
Perform various plot tasks, both yours and those of your friends (they will be available to you, even if you have already done them). In addition to the covers, you will get a good supply of resources, water, and stimulants.
There are several perks in the sections Good Luck and Charisma, which bring bonus covers for completing quests. “Cap collector” will increase the number of caches in the caches “Successful finder” beeps when approaching the cache. Skill “bad deal” allows you to get the best prices from merchants.
Periodically, you will come across players who have killed another player (if the player did not respond to the attack and killed him). They are marked on the map with a red symbol. On such players begins the hunt, and for their head comes a reward.
