Fallout 76 Reputation Levels and Faction Rewards

The Fallout 76 Wastelanders update introduced a new faction system into the wilds of Appalachia. Now players can choose sides between the humble Settlers and the more chaos-prone Raiders. To determine relative allegiance, the game uses reputation levels that correspond to the player’s relationship with either faction. And, as in previous Fallout games, raising these reputation levels will open access to various faction rewards.

Reputation levels in Fallout 76 are broken down into seven different ranks. From lowest to highest reputation level, these ranks are:

  1. Hostile
  2. Cautious
  3. Neutral
  4. Cooperative
  5. Friendly
  6. Neighborly
  7. Ally

In order to gain reputation levels with either faction, you’ll need to earn Reputation Points. The Hostile rank is the lowest at -2,000 points, Neutral is maintained from zero to 1,000 points, and it takes 12,000 points to earn the maximum reputation level of Ally.

Reputation points are earned by completing tasks such as daily events or faction encounters. Settler quests tend to only provide Reputation Points for that faction, while Raider quests simultaneously bolster Raider reputation and hurt Settler reputation.
