Sugar Bombs are a consumable and a quest item in Fallout 3.


This section is transcluded from Sugar Bombs. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Sugar Bombs is a pre-War breakfast cereal. Numerous promotional posters can be found posted on walls around the wasteland, touting the Sugar Bombs' "explosive great taste!" and containing a "free Captain Cosmos decoder ring."

In Fallout 3, Sugar Bombs are mildly useful food items found throughout the Capital Wasteland, which provide only a small amount of health when consumed. Compared to other food items, Sugar Bombs are somewhat rare, something which factors into the unmarked quest Murphy's Bombing Run.

Murphy's Bombing Run

Main article: Murphy's Bombing Run

In Fallout 3, Sugar Bombs can be traded to a ghoul named Murphy in Northwest Seneca Station for use in crafting ultrajet. He will pay you 15 caps for each box of Sugar Bombs that you bring him, and an extra 15 (for a total of 30 caps) with a Speech check. For each 8 boxes of Sugar Bombs brought to him, Murphy will also sell the player one ultrajet.


Apart from appearing randomly in refrigerators and similar containers, there are numerous fixed locations where Sugar Bombs are certain to appear:
