Locations

Behind the scenes

  • Joshua Sawyer stated that the Nuka Breaker is a unique rebar club.[Non-canon 1]
  • The Nuka Breaker was created as a nod to the 2011 fan-made short film and web series Fallout: Nuka Break. The Fallout: Nuka Break team put the Nuka Breaker in episode 3 after seeing it in a pre-release screenshot of Gun Runners' Arsenal before they knew that Obsidian was referencing their series.[Non-canon 2][Non-canon 3] The Nuka Breaker was also featured in the 5th and 6th episodes of the second season of Nuka Break.
