There are a ton of locations that you will eventually reach in the Fallout 76 wastelands. Some locations are fairly easy to reach and you will want to access them right away, while others will take a while to get to. The West Tek Research Facility is one of those areas you might want to avoid until your character has racked up a decent amount of levels. After all, this area is highly dangerous. Be sure to wear damage resistant armor when you go.
West Tek Research Center Location
The West Tek Research Center is one of the easiest areas to find on the map. This is because it is marked by a hospital-style building on the map. This area stands out in the world as there is not much around it either.
You can find the West Tek Research Center south of the National Isolated Radio Array in the Savage Divide region of the map. The Savage Divide region of the map is the tan strip of land that runs between the Forest and Mire regions.
