Nuka-Cola vending machine
Nuka-Cola vending machine is a world object in Fallout 76.
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.
A towering evolution of the earlier vending machine model, this variant sacrificed inventory - capable of storing only a modest amount of bottles - for ease of access and appealing looks. Inserting a coin would unlock the cooler and allow the buyer to select the soda of their choice.
These vending machines are ubiquitous and will typically contain empty Nuka-Cola bottles with one or two regular bottles. Rarely, they will also contain an additional special variant of Nuka-Cola, such as Quantum, Cherry, or other types.
- 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."
- 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."
