Nuka-Cola vending machine

Nuka-Cola vending machine is a world object in Fallout.


The Nuka-Cola Corporation aggressively marketed their flagship product ever since its introduction in 2044. Low-maintenance vending machines were a crucial part of the strategy, and the corporation's generous investment eventually led to a vending machine on almost every street in the United States by 2067, available in a broad variety of types.[1][2]

A simple, free-standing vending machine. The coin-operated machine would deposit a bottle down the chute, and required periodic refills of coolant to keep the contents fresh. Old machines were prone to malfunctioning and instead of gently depositing the bottle could launch it violently at the buyer.[3] Of course, each bore advertising on its side promoting the cola.[4]


The machine is a purely decorative item.


  1. Fallout 4 loading screen hints: "Amateur chemist John-Caleb Bradberton discovered the formula for Nuka-Cola in 2044. Within a year, Nuka-Cola could be purchased across the entire United States."
  2. Sierra Petrovita: "When Nuka-Cola was invented by John-Caleb Bradberton in 2044, it quickly became the world's most popular soft drink. The wonder drink soon drew a dedicated following which prompted the Nuka-Cola Corporation to release many promotional items like these. By 2067, a Nuka-Cola machine such as this rare pristine model could be found on almost every street in America. Even in today's crazy world, Nuka-Cola is still the number one choice of refreshment among Armageddon's survivors."
