Nuka-Cola Victory is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Victory is a bright red-orange variant of the Nuka-Cola product. Drinking it provides healing, grants a bonus to Action Points, decreases Perception, and increases radiation. In hardcore mode, it reduces Sleep and increases Dehydration. Both positive and negative effects scale with the Survival skill.

  • Nuka-Cola Victory is the second rarest of all Nuka-Cola variants found in Fallout: New Vegas, after Nuka-Cola Quantum.
  • Like Nuka-Cola Quartz, Nuka-Cola Victory is not sold by any merchants, except for those selling bottles of Victory that are on display.
  • A total of ten bottles of Nuka-Cola Victory can be found in various locations in the Mojave Wasteland, all placed in-world rather than in containers.
  • An additional four bottles can be found in Big MT.
  • Aside from these locations, the only way to obtain Nuka-Cola Victory is through the recipes given by taking the Nuka Chemist perk.
