How to unlock Excavator Power Armor in Fallout 76

To get Excavator Power Armor, you will first need to get the Miner Miracles quest and complete it to unlock the schematics for crafting the power armor. That said, you can get this quest by going to the Garrahan Mining Headquarters location and heading inside through the lobby, as shown below. 

However, before you do, make sure to prepare yourself with necessary supplies and weapons, as you will encounter formidable robot enemies in this location. Along with this, if a high-level player passed by the area, the enemies could be beyond your level, so you may need to hop server if this is the case.

Once inside, you will need to interact with a poster with the Excavator Power Armor on it, as shown in the image below; doing so will activate the quest.

After touching the poster, you will need to head down the stairs and take a hard left until you find stairs leading down, as shown below.

Descend until you see an area similar to the one below. When you reach this point, you will want to enter the room on the right.

Inside this room, you will want to find a terminal called the Project Manager's terminal; reading the entries will finish the Miner Miracles quest and unlock the Excavator Power Armor schematics.
