So, where is Minerva in Fallout 76? It’s a question we get asked around here quite a bit and for good reason – mainly thanks to the rare trades and discounts she brings to the wastelands.

The gold bullion vendor sells ‘recreations’ of rare plans and recipes that make her an incredibly valuable asset in the game. She was introduced to Fallout 76 during the Steel Reign update back in July 7, 2021 – accompanied by her bodyguard Tommy Ten-Toes and Brahmin Minos.

Throughout the week, Minerva will show up in one of three randomly selected locations in Appalachia – with players having to make the journey to find out for themselves where she’s trading.

In this article, we’ll be showing you exactly where to find Minerva in Fallout 76. We’ll also be updating this article weekly to keep you on top of her current location.
