Fallout 76 Atomic Shop

Here’s how Bethesda explained about it:

“The Atomic Shop was founded to give you as much choice and variety in how you want to customize and celebrate your adventures. It doesn’t offer anything with a competitive advantage, and more so, it aims to bring joy not just to you, but the other dwellers around you.”

So, if you think that your pocket has filled with enough Atoms, then you can spend them with visiting the Atomic Shop and buy any stuff you want from there. All you need to do is click start to head to the map, then hit L1/LB to open the main menu. You will see one of the options is the Atomic Shop, select this and you will be able to buy some new cosmetic items.

Have a great adventure in hunting Atoms!
