Fallout 4's Nuka World DLC Achievements and Nuka Mixer Guide

Ready to start crafting your own perfect Nuka Cola blend? We guide you through the Nuka Mixer's new crafting options!

It seems like Bethesda just got started unloading Fallout 4 DLC, yet somehow we've reached the end of the line already, with the expansions slowing to a stop at the post-apocalyptic amusement park Nuka World.

There's a horde of new items, weapons, and even new crafting options to be found while exploring the park, not to mention significantly more achievements than in previous DLCs.

Nuka World Achievements

While bringing three distinct raider gangs under your thumb, mixing up new flavors of Nuka Cola, and generally wreaking havoc on the Commonwealth, you can pick up these new achievements:

  • All Sugared Up - Defeat 40 Nuka-World creatures while under the effect of any Nuka-Mix flavor (see below)
  • Beverageer - Create 20 different flavors of Nuka-Cola (see below)
  • Diebrarian - Collect every issue of SCAV! magazine
  • Eyes on the Prize – Redeem 100,000 tickets in the Nuka-Cade
  • Home Sweet Home - Complete the Home Sweet Home quest given by Gage
  • Hostile Takeover – Establish 8 raider camps in the Commonwealth
  • Power Play - Complete the Power Play quest given by Shank
  • Raiding For A Living – Complete 12 quests for a Nuka World raider gang
  • Taken For a Ride – Defeat Overboss Colter and finish the Gauntlet (read our full guide here)
  • The Grand Tour - Complete the Grand Tour quest by clearing out all five major attraction areas

The Nuka Mixer

It probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise that an entire amusement park based around Nuka Cola features a ton of different flavors - some old, some very much new.

Huzzah, a new crafting option!

These can also all be mixed together at the Nuka Mixer crafting stations found around the park. These are the base Nuka Cola flavors to use for your own concoctions:

  • Nuka Cola - Restores HP 20, AP 10, bestows Rads 5
  • Nuka GrapeRestores 50 AP and -400 rads
  • Nuka Cola Dark - the "adult" Nuka beverage gives STR 1, END 1, PER -1
  • Iced Nuka Cola - restores HP 45, AP 20
  • Nuka Cola Orange - restores HP 100, AP 50, and gives Rad Resist 25
  • Nuka Cola Quartz - restores AP 240
  • Nuka Cola Victory - restores a whopping HP 840
  • Nuka Cola Wild - restores HP 20, AP 20

The Nuka Mixer stations let you whiz up your own fizzy wonder drinks bestowing various bonuses and tied to two different achievements. 

If you don't have any of the required drinks, you can tag each type of Nuka Cola for searching, just like with any other crafting component, so it's not too tough to search down individual types. Obviously you can find quite a few just by opening Nuka Cola machines around the park and looking on desks in the opening area.

The one that seems to be most in short supply is Nuka Orange, since you need it for multiple recipes and it isn't found in that many locations. If you can't find what you need while exploring the park, you can buy two at a time from Shelbie Chase in the Market, and she restocks them every 48 hours. If you have a ton of Nuka-Cade tickets, they can also be bought from the prize machine for 1,000 tickets a pop.

There's one area that seems like it would be a gold mine, but is actually fairly disappointing: the Nuka Cola Bottling Facility located at the World Of Refreshment attraction.

The area is crawling with Nukalurks – that's right, Mirelurks that lived in an entirely Nuka Cola environment! While the facility is stuffed to the gills with Nuka Cola and Nuka Cola Quantum, oddly none of the other varieties are found inside.
