How To Use Free Cam In Fallout 76

In Fallout 76, there are a lot of different things that players can do. Players can fight off enemy monsters, participate in PvP matches, complete events, and so much more. The game has added a lot of content for players to participate in since the launch of the game. so much so that it is currently attracting new players.

One of the main draws to Fallout 76 is the ability to build CAMPS which serves as a base of operation for players. These CAMPS are highly customizable and allow players to express themselves and how they want to build themselves in the world of Fallout 76. Here, we are going to go over how to use the free camera in Fallout 76 so you can build your CAMP exactly how you want to.

What is 'Free Cam' in Fallout 76?

Fallout 76 did not always have a free cam available. Bethesda actually added the free cam quite recently with the Nuka World on Tour update for the game towards the end of 2022.

So it is a relatively new addition to the game and it would not be shocking for players to not know when or how to use the free cam in the game.

While in Build Mode, players can toggle into Free-Cam to build and place objects in their C.A.M.P. without having to move their character. Free-cam allows you to pan through walls and reach ceilings to reach those hard-to-get places. So for those players who love to build, it's really useful!

What Are Free Cam Challenges In Fallout 76?

In addition to making building easier, sometimes the game will add 'Free Cam Challenges' which offer rewards for players.

For instance, at one stage players needed to complete 5 of the free cam daily challenges to earn the festive holiday village house.

How To Use The Free Cam In Fallout 76?

The first thing players need to do to use the free cam is open the crafting menu near a CAMP. On the bottom of the screen, you will see a prompt telling you to use the free cam with a coordinating button to press. Press that button and you are now in free cam mode in Fallout 76.

Is The Free Cam Good In Fallout 76?

Using the free cam in Fallout 76 is actaully pretty good. Prior, players would normally have to walk around the terrain and actually build CAMPS without having the ability to look around. It made the building very cumbersome and difficult. Players could not customize their CAMPS as much as they wanted to without the free cam.

Now players do not have to walk around to build in Fallout 76 anymore. This makes building easier, more customizable, and overall a better experience for players. Using the free cam is relatively easy and intuitive as well. Plus, there are some building challenges that can only be completed using the free cam in Fallout 76. We highly recommend using the free cam when you are building in Fallout 76.
