A refrigerator. Out of coolant.Fallout in-game description

The refrigerator is a container that stores food and drinks at cool temperatures, in order to increase their longevity.


They can typically be found in kitchens, where they can be looted for food and, occasionally, single regular bottles of Nuka-Cola. Certain refrigerators also serve as liquor cabinets and will contain various bottles of alcoholic drinks such as whiskey, wine, and vodka.

The refrigerators in Andale do not contain regular food, but instead, they have strange meat.

In the Nuka-Cola plant there are unique refrigerators called Nuka-Cola fridges, but these are all empty. One of these can also be found in Sierra Petrovita's home in Girdershade, but it is locked and requires console commands in order to be opened.

List of possible lootEdit




Fallout: New VegasEdit

Perk wild wastelandThe following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

An Easter egg refrigerator can be found in Fallout: New Vegas. If the Courier has the Wild Wasteland trait, there is a skeleton in a fridge, wearing a suave gambler hat. This is referencing the film Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull where Indiana Jones hides in a lead-lined fridge to survive a nuclear blast.

Perk wild wastelandEnd of information based on the Wild Wasteland trait.

Refrigerators can also be found in homes in Fallout: New Vegas, and may contain additional food items than those listed above, such as Sunset Sarsaparillas and atomic cocktails.

Fallout 4Edit

Refrigerators return, but unlike the previous Fallout games, many of them cannot be used as storage. There is also a quest where the Sole Survivor must rescue a ghoulified boy from a refrigerator and return him to his parents near Quincy. Much like the New Vegas one, it references Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Fallout 76Edit

Refrigerators come in 4 variations in this installment: Non-C.A.M.P. containers with inventory, non-C.A.M.P. 'boxes' with physical items inside, C.A.M.P. refrigerators that do not open or function, and C.A.M.P. refrigerators that decrease spoil time by 50% and are exclusive to the ATOM shop.
