Vending Machine (Fallout: New Vegas)

Nuka-Cola Vending Machines are world objects and containers in Fallout: New Vegas.


The Nuka-Cola Corporation marketed their flagship product ever since its introduction in 2044. By 2067, vending machines were widespread throughout the United States.[1][2]


In Fallout: New Vegas there are 42 located throughout the Mojave Wasteland, in various buildings. The contents of a vending machine are randomly set the first time the player character enters a map cell and remain that way for the rest of the game. In all other respects, it is a standard container and can be used for long term storage throughout the game.

A fully stocked vending machine contains nine Bottle Caps and three Nuka-Cola. The minimum a vending machine will contain is a single Nuka-Cola with the rest being random.

  1. Fallout 4 loading screens: "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."
