Starting on the 10th of November, Target Company will stock up their stores with the new Nuke-Cola Quantum, a soft beverage inspired by the Fallout franchise. Nuke Cola Quantum and Fallout 4 will go live on the same date. Fallout 4 will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
As a friendly reminder, nuke-cola is a rare trinket you could pick up in Fallout 3 and his sibling Fallout: New Vegas. Remember when you rummaged through desolate old buildings or abandoned tunnels to search for some extra bottle caps? Yes, the bottle caps ultimately proved to be useful when you wanted to buy some new piece of armor or to repair your stuff after a rough encounter with some super mutants, but Nuke-Cola gave you that extra kick in battle.
Nuke-colas were very effective when you were level 5 or 6 against sturdier foes. How many shots you used to punch in a mirelurk at level 5 in order to bring him down? Quite a lot of them and some of them were misses. You would run around hoping the monster won’t swing a critical hit on you and then you would probably try again to shoot it.
What’s cool about Nuke-cola: you can totally deplete the power of your VATS, chug in a bottle of that sky-blue mysterious drink and then resume the killing. Not only were you able to obtain an edge in battle, but the more Nuke-cola’s you consumed the more bottle caps you received.
Trouble was that you had to look a bit for those bottle of nuke-cola. Usually, they can be found inside locked chests which you could open only if you had enough skill points invested in pick locking. That can cause a lot of frustration, but the results were worth the effort.
Remember Operation Anchorage, more specifically, the end of the mission, where you get to choose the reward after opening the vault for the Brotherhood of Steel? After a couple of hours, after befriending you, everybody tries to kill you. A nuke-cola could sure come in handy at this point in order to reduce the number of bullets you spend in taking down a soldier with power armor on.
Nuke cola quantum and Fallout 4 are both crowning achievements of Bethesda’s merits in innovating the market of RPG games.
