A Nuka-Cola machine is a world and settlement object in Fallout 4.


Nuka-Cola machines may generate up to six randomly selected bottles of Nuka-Cola, Nuka-Cherry, Nuka-Cola Quantum or an empty Nuka-Cola bottle. The bottles are usually visible behind a transparent, openable door. Bottles are sometimes be scattered around the machine as well.

As many locations in the Commonwealth reset after a certain amount of time, all Nuka-Cola machines inside will reset with them, spawning a new set of contents when revisiting the area. It is possible to craft and place Nuka-Cola machines as a decoration in any controlled settlement, although they will not generate any bottles.


Nuka-Cola vending machines can be found commonly in the Nuka-World theme park, both inside of buildings and out in the open. In addition to the three flavors available in the Commonwealth, they can spawn Nuka-Cola Dark, Nuka-Grape, Nuka-Cola Orange, Nuka-Cola Quartz, Nuka-Cola Victory and Nuka-Cola Wild flavors in random combinations of up to six bottles per machine. Vending machines throughout the exterior of the park have functional screens, playing a "Park Safety Rules" promotional video featuring Bottle and Cappy on a loop.


The Nuka-Cola machine is located under Decorations → Miscellaneous, under Appliances.

As with many craftable items, the hitbox does not allow placement flush against a wall. One can place the machine and then an object against the back of it without issue, but re-selecting the machine will not allow it to be placed back in the same place that it was just picked up from. This workaround cannot work with pre-existing structures that can't be moved.



Nukatron robots are found in Nuka-World, the body of which resembles the vending machine.


PCPC Outside the brick wall of Nuka-Town U.S.A. in the eastern parking lot is a Nuka-Cola machine which stocks 12 bottles instead of the usual six, resulting in overlapping bottles.[verified]
