Carton of cigarettes (Fallout 3)
Carton of cigarettes
Cartons of cigarettes are rectangular containers – mostly of paperboard – which contains cigarettes. Usually containing ten packs, totaling two hundred cigarettes, however some cartons contain twenty packs.
A box containing several packs of Big Boss brand cigarettes. Cartons are abundant in the Capital Wasteland, and can be found in many locations or purchased from merchants. Like other cigarettes, they can be traded but cannot be smoked by the player. Cartons have some additional uses:
- Like all miscellaneous items, they can be used as Rock-It Launcher ammunition.
- Jericho will smoke any cigarettes placed in his inventory.
- Cartons of cigarettes are most commonly found in regular desks in buildings around the wasteland.
- Any house within a settlement also has a good chance to have cartons of cigarettes in them. However, it is likely they will have to be stolen.
Behind the scenes
- The cigarette's brand name "Big Boss" may be an allusion to the popular stealth/action series Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid. One of the primary characters in both series is code-named Big Boss. Cigarettes are a recurring inventory item in almost every Metal Gear game. In addition, in Metal Gear Solid 4, the brand of cigarettes used during the game is Big Boss brand, the same as in Fallout 3.
