In ''Fallout 3'' there are 152 of them located throughout the [[Capital Wasteland]], in Metro stations and various buildings. The contents of a vending machine is randomly set the first time the player enters a map cell and remain that way for the rest of the game. In all other respects, it is a standard [[Fallout 3 containers and storage|container]] and can be used for long term storage throughout the game.

A fully stocked vending machine contains 9 [[Bottle cap (Fallout 3)|bottle cap]]s, 3 [[Nuka-Cola (Fallout 3)|Nuka-Cola]]s and a [[Nuka-Cola Quantum (Fallout 3)|Nuka-Cola Quantum]], but it is an extremely rare occurrence. The minimum a vending machine will contain is a single Nuka-Cola with the rest being random. There are two chances (75%) for an additional Nuka-Cola. There is a chance (10%) for bottle caps (probably 11% for 9) and a chance (10%) for a Nuka-Cola Quantum. The odds (based on the above figures) for a fully stocked machine are 1 in 1,600 or 0.0625%. That works out to 1 fully stocked machine in 10 1/2 complete games (visiting every machine on the map).

Since the contents of a vending machine are set the first time the player enters a map cell, it is possible to "roll" for Quantums (save, enter cell, check for Quantums, reload) but this can quickly become tedious. In a map cell containing 2 vending machines, the odds are 1 in 100 of finding a Quantum in both of them. For 3 machines, it is 1 in 1,000 and so on.
