A carton of cigarettes is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


A box containing several packs of cigarettes. Cartons are abundant in both the Capital and Mojave wastelands, and can be found in many locations or purchased from merchants. Like other cigarettes, they can be traded but cannot be smoked by the player. Cartons have additional uses in both games:

Fallout 3Edit

  • Like all miscellaneous items, they can be used as Rock-It Launcher ammunition.
  • Jericho will smoke any cigarettes placed in his inventory.
  • The cartons are common throughout the wasteland, relatively lightweight, and can be sold for up to 50 caps, depending on Barter level.

Behind the scenesEdit

The cigarette's brand name "Big Boss" may be an allusion to the popular stealth/action series Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid. One of the primary characters in both series is code-named Big Boss. Cigarettes are a recurring inventory item in almost every Metal Gear game. In addition, in Metal Gear Solid 4, the brand of cigarettes used during the game is The Boss brand, the same as in Fallout 3.
