Fallout 76 Legendary Weapons Quest Guide

Fallout 76 Legendary weapons quests guide for All Rise, Daisycutter, Perfect Storm and Pyrolyzer legendary weapons.[toc]

Legendary Weapons in Fallout 76

There are four legendary weapons you can acquire in Fallout 76 via quests. It is recommended you do these quests once you reach Level 50 so you can get the level 50 version of the weapons.

Legendary items in Fallout 76 are marked by a star symbol next to their name and have ranks from 1-5 (although only rank 3 exists in game currently). The ranks are commonly called stars as well.  The more stars a legendary item has, the more effects it will have on it (i.e. one star = 1 effect etc). Your inventory will show only 1 effect of the legendary weapon but if you press the button to inspect it, it will show all of them.


The legendary weapons you get from these quests are mostly one star legendaries with the exception of All Rise which is a 2 star legendary. They are decent starter weapons until you can get better 3 star legendries. All Rise and Daisycutter also have 90% weight reduction so they are easy to carry around.

All Rise – Mayor for a Day Quest

The Fallout 76 quest Mayor for a Day at Watoga rewards All Rise, a modified Super Sledge weapon that is actually a 2 star legendary and fairly decent for melee users.


Quest Start

When you approach Watoga down in Cranberry Bog, you should receive a Misc quest telling you to check out the Mayor in the Watoga Municipal Center. The Mayor’s officer is a bit hard to reach. Once you take the elevator, you need to climb up rest of the floors manually. The Mayor’s office is at the very top.
