Aqua Cura is a fake version of Aqua Pura in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.

CharacteristicsEdit

It is produced by the ghoul Griffon by switching Aqua Pura with irradiated water to sell to the ghouls in Underworld. He would then sell the real Aqua Pura to people the Brotherhood of Steel won't give it to, such as the raiders and slavers, to increase his profits. It is essentially dirty water.

Griffon also tries to increase his profits on the water by telling the ghouls it has effects that will benefit them; this is true because radiation heals ghouls, but it also furthers their "ghoulification" and misrepresents the value of his product (which would otherwise be free).

NotesEdit

  • If a certain speech challenge is used to complete the quest The Amazing Aqua Cura!, Griffon will then sell regular Aqua Pura, although he will continue to call it Aqua Cura, which he claims is to give hope to the ghouls that purchase the water.

    • Cures clumsiness.
    • Helps sleep.
    • Removes stains.
    • Cures headaches.

    • Tastes great, and reverses radiation poisoning.
    • Helps concentration.
    • Improves hearing.
    • Prevents bullying.
    • Relieves "dry mouth, and other side effects of Mentats."
  • Aqua Cura is worth more than Aqua Pura with all traders.
  • Aqua Cura appears to lose its radiation level over time in your items while accomplishing other quests, etc., the effect becomes Rads +0 but still gives Rads +1 when consumed.
