Rex Meacham was the lead scientist of the Beverageer Division before the Great War. He is found dead in the Nuka-Cola bottling plant's secret lab in 2287.


After General Braxton and Bradberton's agreement about using the Beverageer division of Nuka-World, Meacham and his team started working on finding new chemicals for use in military weapons. Eventually they came up with a new chemical named "Quantum", which was based on isotope strontium-90. It was eventually used in Nuka-nukes and Nuka-Cola Quantum.[1] After the Great War, he was locked in the secure beverageer lab along with the rest of the Beverageer scientists. Here he became more and more paranoid, placing secret recordings around the lab. He was eventually driven mad and killed Kate Leavitt for trying to leave.[2] He managed to finish Project Cobalt, before dying from radiation poisoning, which he received while pursuing Kevin Bennell into the reactor room.[3]

His body can be found in the testing range of the lab, together with the Project Cobalt files and a couple of Nuka Grenades beside him.

At some point before the Great War, he and Kate Leavitt stayed at the Mountainside Bed & Breakfast in Appalachia to get away from the New England area and take their minds off work.[4]

His voice can be heard on all four tapes of the Meacham recordings.


Rex Meacham appears in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World and Fallout 76.

Behind the scenesEdit

Rex Meacham's name is an amalgamation of the names of Cal Meacham, the main character of the 1955 science fiction movie This Island Earth, and the actor that portrays him, Rex Reason. He shares this trait with his fellow secure beverageer scientists.
