The empty soda bottle is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


Fallout 3Edit

The empty soda bottle only serves as a common form of Rock-It Launcher ammunition.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

You can squeeze the water out of two prickly pear fruits into an empty soda bottle to form a bottle of purified water which essentially is cactus water. In the Honest Hearts add-on, it is the required component for brewing Homebrewed Nuka-Cola. In Old World Blues, the Sink can turn this into a bottle of purified water.

In-game, this bottle is different from the empty Nuka-Cola bottle. It weighs the same as an empty Nuka-Cola bottle but has a value of 1 cap instead of the Nuka-Cola's 2. It is identical in appearance to the empty Nuka-Cola bottle, and it even has the red Nuka-Cola label on it.
