| ||For an overview of Nuka-Cola vending machines, see Nuka-Cola vending machine.|
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 the Nuka-World-exclusive 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. Nuka-World vending machines also appear to reset far more often than their Commonwealth counterparts and are abundant in the park.
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.
