On Fallout 76, How do you farm Stimpaks? How do you farm Glowing Blood Packs? How do you farm Blood Packs?
All simply answered with, farm ticks.
Although Stimpaks and other medical recipes come over time, it’s important to get familiar with some Tick Blood farming earlier on. What better of a way than adding it to your list of first things to do when leaving Vault 76.
Location: Moonshiner’s Shack
After spawning at Vault 76, run south down the hill towards Moonshiner’s Shack. Here you’ll be finding (2-4) Tick Blood a run. There’s also a chance of spawning in recipes as well near the campfire.
After you clear the location, hop servers, run up the hill, rinse and repeat. This location seems to be the best and most consistent I’ve found during my travels, especially since there’s a Chemistry Bench inside one of the shacks.
Before crafting any chems, it’s a must to put on the Chemist Perk which only costs (1) Intelligence after level 34 for double the crafting of any chems. After level 50 Super Duper Perk Rank 3 for (3) Luck will give you a 30% chance of receiving double the results when crafting which is nice and worth it over time.
After a few runs, I had saved up (10) Tick Blood and was ready to craft some chems.
Luckily, with the Super Duper Perk I was able to craft a few extra Blood Packs. Out of 5 crafting attempts, 2 of the 5 gave me additional Blood Packs.
Glowing Blood Pack
Another very useful item you’ll want to farm out later on are the Glowing Blood Packs. They provide +75 Rad Resistance for 10 minutes, which is extremely helpful in Nuke Zones.
Location: Dolly Sods Wilderness
I would say that this is the only other location I’ve found that Ticks spawn in more consistently. (Usually 2-4) If for some reason you’re not noticing them when spawning in be sure to search the area, they tend to get spread out on some servers.
Be sure to check near the buildings as well as tents.
Ticks sometimes spawn near Camp McClintock, near the training courses, but are not a reliable source of Tick Blood.
Ticks rarely spawn near the guarded entrance to The Whitespring Resort, across from the Train Station, also not a reliable source of Tick Blood.
If I find any other locations I’ll be sure to add them in and if you have any locations you know of, feel free to let us know!
