Now the Fallout 76 beta is over everyone's had a good chance to explore the Fallout 76 map, and start piecing together the locations and secrets it has to offer. The good news is that for those exploring, the beta progress will carry over so hopefully all those fast travel points will still be there, meaning you can hit for floor running once Fallout 76 launches.
The map in Fallout 76 is broadly divided up into six regions making up what's believed to be around 16 square miles in-game. The Forest is obviously the starting area and the location of Vault 76. Unsurprisingly, the further out you push the more dangerous things get - Cranberry Bog and The Mire are definitely not places you want to rush into.
Following the initial quest you get as you leave the vault will lead you out into the wider world, and to a camp you can make a good base from. Where you go after that is entirely up to you. Almost every landmark you can see will cough up a couple of quests, especially the named locations, and you'll also likely pick up all sorts of other things along the way.
It's worth noting that you can fast travel between places you've already visited for a small cap cost, so it's worth walking through areas just to pop a marker on the Fallout 76 map. Keep an eye on your radar as you wander as you'll see location icons appear all around you - just walk towards one until it says 'discovered' and then you can use it for fast travel. You can also fast travel to join public events in areas you haven't been to which is a great way of expanding your reach on the Fallout 76 map.
