Every day, you gotta buy stuff. Food, ammo, beer, whatever. And you pay with caps.”— Parker Quinn
Bottlecaps are miscellaneous items in Fallout 4, which are widely used as currency throughout the post-War United States. Bottlecaps can come from certain drinks, such as Nuka-Cola, beer, and other malt beverages.
Bottlecaps are used as currency in the Commonwealth.
Bottlecaps can be found pretty much anywhere in the Commonwealth, in varying amounts. One of the most common places to find bottlecaps is in lockers and desks, where you can find between 10-20 bottlecaps.
- Nuka-Cola caps seen throughout the game either in advertisements, memorabilia, or as actual collectible caps such as those thrown out by the bottlecap mine have the classic Nuka-Cola logo on them, but this logo is missing on the cap of the bottled Nuka-Cola item, which is simply plain red.
- Bottlecaps are not needed to craft bottlecap mines in Fallout 4. Although bottle caps can be collected from a detonated bottlecap mine.
- If you have the Fortune Finder perk, there will be a better chance of finding bottlecaps. If you have this perk at max level, there is a chance that enemies explode into a shower of caps upon getting killed.
- Unlike in previous games, bottlecaps cannot be stored or dropped in Fallout 4.
