Nuka-Cola is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


主页面: Nuka-Cola

There is a Nuka-Cola plant in the Washington, D.C Area.


Nuka-Cola was the most common form of drink in Fallout 3; however, in Fallout: New Vegas, it is far less common compared to Sunset Sarsaparilla. Sunset Sarsaparilla is somewhat more useful because it does not contain any radiation.

While playing Hardcore mode, Nuka-Cola will give the drinker some energy to fend off sleep deprivation, at the cost of dehydrating them. The drink will still heal as well. When not playing Hardcore mode, Nuka-Cola provides +2 (25s) HP, +3 Rads, & 1 bottle cap.


With the Honest Hearts add-on installed, the Courier has access to a recipe which enables the creation of a home-brewed version of the drink. Nuka-Cola is also used when crafting super stimpaks.

  • A bottle cap is included after drinking the soda.
  • Festus incorrectly states that before the invention of Sunset Sarsaparilla, the only thing people could drink is Nuka-Cola. Nuka-Cola was invented well after Sunset Sarsaparilla (as indicated by the establishment of Sunset Sarsaparilla in front of its HQ in Las Vegas).

Behind the scenes

  • During the 2008 E3 as a promotional item, people were given a real drinkable version of Nuka-Cola. It greatly resembles the 1950s look of the Coca-Cola brand bottles.
  • During 2015/2016 a real version of Nuka Cola Quantum could be purchased online and in Target stores worldwide.
  • The name of the Nuka-Cola creator, John-Caleb Bradberton, is an amalgamation of the inventors of Coca-Cola (John Pemberton) and Pepsi-Cola (Caleb Bradham).
  • Its logos, bottle designs, market crash, and even its name are heavily based on Coca-Cola.
