I have to find 30 bottles of Nuka-Cola Quantums, where?

The bottles are scattered across D.C. I've searched high and low, and I only have 15. Thankfully, there are more than 30 in the game.

Im not even half way through and i already delivered 17... Just check every Vending Machine you see... there are way more than 30... (you use some of the Nukacola Quantum to make powerful granades!)

I found dozens, never knew I had to save em until now, been drinking and selling em, thankfully I've been keeping a stash at my house.

Subway stations have vending machines which nearly always have them, and supa dupa mart has quite a few in the storerooms

There is much more than 30, but they hard to find ;)
I've got 13 right now. Still need to go to a few places (Nuka-Cola Factory).

Have anyone of you gone into the Nuka-Cola Plant and found the note called Finding The Furmula? It says to look for the formula in the first floor of the plant. Does anyone know where it is?

its on a dead body if you do a bit of exploring

@ syrax, i have been looking for for the Nuka Cola Clear formula all day. the note says that the guys are meeting at the Red Rocket Tricycle Factory. as far as i can tell there is no such place, but slightly north east of the nuka cola plant there is the Red Racer Tricycle Factory which i spent over an hour looking through and i found no nuka cola clear formula or any thing relating to nuka cola at all for that matter. so im not sure what to make of that note... hopefully someone figures it out because its starting to piss me off

@rubix - so the formula is at the nuka cola plant? is there anything at the red racer factory?

Redonkulous BP
11-03-2008, 02:30 AM
To those wondering about the formula:

1. I found the letter about the meet up for selling the formula on a dead body within the plant.

2. Ask robot downstairs to make you a key.

3. Use the key on a locked safe on the first floor. It is built into a wall in a computer lab/office area. The formula is in here.

4. Take the formula to the Red Racer plant - I know it doesn't say tricycle, but that's where it is. You will meet a gang at the front entrance and make the exchange. I hope that helps.

OK Guys I am going to compile a list of location to obtain 30 Nuka-Cola Quantums plus one more for the Nuka-Grenade.

Some information about the Vending machines, basically only 10% of all the vending machines in the game contain NCQ (Nuka-Cola Quantums) so search everyone you see. Prime spots for these are in the Metro Stations.

1. After visiting the Nuka-Cola plant and activating the supply terminal. 3 NCQ will appear in the room below you.

2. After exiting the NC Plant if you run around back there will be a truck with one in the back.

3. South east of Old Olney is a fuel station with a crashed truck. There is 5 in this location.

4. Paradise Falls, Eulogy's Pad, there is 5 in here also.

5. Springvale School, on top of the cage that is front of you immediately as you enter. You have to go upstairs to get to it.

15 done, 15 to go :)

6. Musuem of Technology, in the Planeterium section of the buildings, just follow the signs and you will find the research room.

7. Lincoln Memorial, inside underneath the memorial on a shelf were you speak to the guy that activates the Head of State quest.

8. Arlington Library, go to the media archives section of the building and then to the third floor. There should be a main room with the bottle in the corner behind some skulls.

9. Super-Duper Mart, inside the Medical Supply room that requires a hack to access, there should be 4 in here.

10. Germantown HQ, in the basement where you save Shorty there is a NCQ behind a small metal box.

11. In Arlington Library, when venturing through the corridors you will come across a vending machine on its side on the floor, this has blue juice in it.

To be Continued....

It might be good to post a few more than the required 31, since some people might have already drank them, sold them, or if they got knocked around in a firefight.

MrFresh
11-04-2008, 04:04 PM
I believe im not really sure but i remember getting one underneath the RedRocket in Springvale there a Nuka Cola Vending machine.

And i pretty sure about this one, In Hamilton Hideaway there is one (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1289402#post1289402)Quantum and i believe 3 reguler colas

I'm not sure if there's a limit to how many he has as I did not buy any of them, but there is an NPC that sells them. I found him out in the wastes travelling with a Yao Guai (sp?). I can't remember the name of the location he was at, but it's the place you have to enter when you place the camera in the mirelurk nesting grounds during the wasteland survival guide quest. I also do not know if he travels and will only appear there sporadically as I only visited this location the one time. I hope this helps.

Edit: I forgot to mention, he was charging 100 caps each.

I've found two that I don't see on the list, I hope this helps haha

1. In the Rivet City, go to the marketplace. Go past the diner (which is right next to the gun shop), and there will be a Nuka Cola machine with a Quantum Cola inside.

2. North-west of Charnel City (Which is west of Jury Street Metro Station, which is west of Vault 101 lol) there's a destroyed building, go in it and to the left, there'll be a friendly scavenger and a Quantum Cola in a crate behind them.

is there any way to get the quantums back? because i killed seira and she didnt have the key to her machine, and i ask because i cant find ANY quantums and i had 32 on me, but she stole the extra 2 i was going to use for the nuka grenade.

so i want to either get the 32 quantums back or get more quantums so is there any way to do this, cause ive searched almost everywhere and cant find any more.

11-13-2008, 10:26 PM
Reload a save before giving them to her. Put one in your house. Or say screw it as you already have the achievement.

11-13-2008, 11:29 PM
Or search a little...there are a lot more than just 32 Quantum in the game. I think there's a faq on gamefaqs (or gamespot maybe...not sure) with the location of all the Quantum bottles.

the quantums are behind the 100 lockpick door go all the way in the back till you see a friendly robot. Hack the terminal and you should get the option to make 3 quantums come from the delivery line. In the room before the terminal.

Hope this helps.

Theres a room in the factory with a computer that u can hack it is (very easy) when u hack it u can dispence 3 nuka cola quantums also there is a robot in a room cant remember what he is called but he starts talking to u. There is a speech thing i have 80 speech and i had a 70% chance of perswading him he will give u the code for a computer that computer then tells u were around 17 nuka cola quantoms are. Hope i helped :woop:

if you are still looking for the one in the factory its on the ground floor, look for a conveyer belt with regular colas on it, there should be a room near it, with a computer i dont think you need to hack it if you do its less then 20 science cause mines at 21 lol and just press nuka cola quantom and there you got 3

It's behind the Nuka Cola factory. There is also one Quantum inside a vending machine around the outside of the factory, just go all the way around the factory and you should find the truck and the vending machine, also if you have 100 Lockpick you can go inside and start up the production line giving you another 3 Nuka Colas. If you need anymore help just go to Fallout Wiki.

TheDrkAssassain
04-26-2009, 01:34 PM
There are 100 of them i believe, plenty of scattered guides have all of them (i think the fallout wiki has all locations listed)

pinkfluff1
04-27-2009, 04:36 PM
If you read the achievement guide on this forum you'd find a link to fallout wiki which has detailed locations of all the possible quantum available. that site also has info on everything else in the game and is highly accurate.

If your in the factory, the Door your looking for to get to the actual "Processing Plant" is in the Offices. Cant be too descriptive, but i know the door to get to the area that holds the Quantums is in the Offices.

there is a perk that should make this achievement way easier to get its a lvl 22 perk called quantum chemist or something along those lines if u have broken steel. it changes every 10 nuka cola you get into a quantum.
