How to Change Your User Icon in Fallout 76

Approx Reading Time: 2 minutes

Have you ever noticed that everyone is running around Appalachia with the same default user icon? Well, I aim to change that. The process to change it is simple once you know how to do it.

To change your Fallout 76 user icon complete these steps:

  1. Go to the Atomic Shop
  2. Click on the ICONS tab on the left-hand side
  3. Find an image you like marked (OWNED) or purchase a new one
  4. Mouse over the one you want
  5. Hit enter to equip it

You should notice a small checkmark in the upper left-hand corner of the selected image, indicating that it is your currently chosen icon.

Changing Your Icon In The Atomic Shop

Easy right? Yes, but not very intuitive. I would have expected that changing your icon would be done through your pip-boy or maybe some option on the map screen. 

It never really occurred to me that you would change your icon through the same interface that you purchase them. It makes sense when you think about it. I don’t think too many people have thought about it, to be honest, or this page probably wouldn’t need to exist.

There you have it — the ultimate guide to changing your Fallout 76 user icon. Short sweet and to the point. I hope this quick post was helpful, and that you didn’t slap your forehead too hard when you learned how simple this was.
