The Fallout crossover has finally arrived in Fortnite, bringing Nuka-Cola bottles as a new consumable. So, here’s here’s where to find Nuka-Cola in Fortnite, as well as what it does.

Fortnite is well known for its collaborations with major franchises and Chapter 5 Season 3 delivers, with Marvel’s Magneto appearing in the Battle Pass and the Fallout franchise also taking over the map. As part of the Fallout crossover, the series’ iconic Nuka-Cola has been added as a new consumable.

But where can you find Nuka-Cola in Fortnite and what does it do? Here’s everything you need to know.

Where to find Nuka-Cola in Fortnite

Nuka-Cola is regular ground loot in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, meaning it can be found inside chests, supply drops, or even just lying around the map. There is no way to guarantee you’ll find the consumable, so you’ll have to rely on luck to find it.

However, you can increase your chances by landing at large POIs, as these will contain more chests to search and more loot scattered around. That being said, Nuka-Cola is an Epic item, so you might struggle to find the bottles consistently.

There could also be an NPC roaming the island that will sell you the drink, but it’s still early days in the season and nothing has been discovered just yet.

What is Nuka-Cola in Fortnite?

Drinking a Nuka-Cola in Fortnite will instantly replenish a small portion of your health and gradually restore shield over time. The initial health boost is 25, while your shield recharges slowly until 75 has been awarded.

The consumable comes with a unique animation that sees your player put the bottle cap in their pocket, in a nod to the Fallout games where Caps are the main currency, and drinking a Nuka-Cola automatically gives you +1 Gold Bars. Fans will also recognize the sound effect that plays after each use.

Nuka-Cola is one of the many new items and weapons in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, which is also set to bring a Fall Guys event and another Jujutsu Kaisen collab.
