Bradberton is a town on the outskirts of Nuka-World.


Named after John-Caleb Bradberton, this company town was founded in 2060 in order to house Nuka-World employees and shorten their commute.[1] It is connected to the highway passing through the area via the Bradberton overpass. There are a number of feral ghouls roaming the streets.


The small town Bradberton is built around a main road, with a police station and other public buildings in the central square. Most of the buildings that are not boarded up are ruined and littered with dirt and debris. A small chapel can be found down the main road to the west. The motel's limited scrap is still open to scavengers. To the southeast, the remnants of the Little Nuka Gift Shop can be explored and there is a working terminal on the counter.

Notable loot

  • Rachel's holotape - Found near the body of Rachel Watkins, on the lower level of a collapsed house on the southeast side of Bradberton, two houses east of the town's motel.
  • A Nuka-Cola lunchbox on the countertop in the same building as Rachel's remains.


Bradberton appears only in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.

Behind the scenes

Upon entering the town from the south road, there is a reference to the Dark Souls series in the second house on the left. Inside an altar can be found, decorated with or dedicated to the sun and stars. In front of the altar, a pile of glowing embers is on the floor with a Chinese officer sword sticking out of it. The Sole Survivor can "kindle" the fire, making it burst into flames upon which stimpaks fall from thin air. Taking the sword makes more stimpaks appear. In the Dark Souls series, bonfires are used to refill the player character's health, much like stimpaks.[2]
