Nuka-Cola Cranberry is a specialty flavor developed by Nuka-Cola and marketed in the Watoga area of Appalachia in Fallout 76. It offers an XP bonus when drunk, as well as quenches thirst. Finding it can be difficult, as it doesn’t have a specific spawn point where it always appears. There are many different areas it can show up, though. Here’s where to find Nuka Cranberry in Fallout 76.

Where to Find Nuka Cranberry in Fallout 76

The easiest ways to get Nuka-Cola Cranberry is to involve Nuka-Cola machines. Whether you go to Nuka World, employ the Nuka-Cola Collectron, or use the Nuka-Cola Mystery Machine, you have a chance of finding one. The Collectron has a 10% chance of finding the soda every seven and half minutes. The Mystery Machine can be used every five minutes for 15 caps. It has a 3.33% of dispensing cranberry.

When it comes to the Nuka-Cola vending machines, they can be found at Nuka World. The inventory is random, but they have a chance of containing cranberry. Along with those machines, there are the ones with the glass door you can open to find bottles inside. These are littered throughout the wasteland and filled with a random selection of empty or filled bottles of soda.
