Not all of the attractions at Nuka-World were rides. The Nuka-Cade here boasted dozens of exciting games of skill for the whole family to enjoy.Sierra Petrovita

The Nuka-Cade is an unmarked location in the Nuka-World Amusement Park and is a part of Nuka-Town USA in 2287.


The Nuka-Cade is an arcade-hall featuring different kinds of arcade games. There are five different kinds of playable games in the Nuka-Cade that require Nuka-Cade tokens to function: Hoop Shot, Atomic Rollers, Whac-a-Commie, Bandit Roundup and Nuka-Zapper Race. The arcade game-winners are awarded Nuka-Cade tickets that can be redeemed for prizes. The prize selection rotates around every few days and prizes range from souvenirs to power armor. Weapons received from the prize machine can have legendary effects.


The Nuka-Cade consists of a large building divided into several rooms. The Sole Survivor enters into a reception area with two token dispensers that dispense Nuka-Cade tokens in exchange for pre-War money, and a desk with a first aid kit beneath it. Down the stairs in this area is the prize terminal where tickets may be redeemed and then spent using the available menus.

The northern room contains the Bandit Roundup game, the southern room contains the Nuka-Zapper Race, the northeast room contains seven stations for Whac-a-Commie and five stations for Hoop Shot. In the southeast room, there is one station for Whac-A-Commie and five stations for Atomic Rollers, as well as an employees-only door that leads into a generator room with a fusion core and a weapons workbench. Fritsch waits in the reception area of the Nuka-Cade. He will help start the Amoral Combat quests in addition to acting as a merchant.

Ticket output

Below are the average Nuka-Cade tickets the player character will receive from a minute of play at each machine if played perfectly. This means hitting the red menace at least once each time it pops up, making at least sixty hoops in a game of Hoop Shot, finishing Atomic Rollers quickly with a perfect score of 7000, not missing any targets in an average game of Bandit Roundup and winning Nuka-Zapper as quickly as possible. Bandit Roundup gives the most tickets and Whac-A-Commie gives the least.

Notable loot

Nuka-Cade prize terminal rewards

There are five prize levels and there are at most eight items available at the same time for each level. Each item can only be bought once but there can be several copies of the same item available, e.g. three Nuka-Cola Dark in the level 5 prize list.

The list of prizes changes every few days and the stocks are replenished. On top of the list below, the terminal also proposes to redeem various weapons, armor parts and power armor parts for the prize levels 4 and 5. Armor parts and weapons redeemed through the terminal have a high chance of having a legendary effect. Those items often cost more than 10,000 tickets and sometimes are upwards of 20,000 tickets.

A book return terminal can be seen behind the wall of the prize redemption area if using tcl console command. While usable, it serves no purpose and has only junk items.


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

    • PC users can use the tcl console command to grab the prize if it gets stuck.
