— In-game description.

Quantum Chemist is a perk in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.


With this perk, every 10 Nuka-Colas you acquire are automatically converted into a Nuka-Cola Quantum. A notification in the top left of the screen will inform the player of the 10 Nuka-Cola being removed and the 1 Nuka-Cola Quantum being added, and, as such, the player will no longer be able to hold more than 9 bottles of Nuka-Cola at once. Ice cold Nuka-Cola is not affected by this perk.

This perk allows the player to circumvent the hard limit of Nuka-Cola Quantums placed in the game (94 loose in the world, plus the possibility of finding up to 152 in vending machines). Since regular Nuka-Colas can be found restocked in merchant inventories, this perk allows for a potentially unlimited number of Quantums. This can be a great way to get enough Quantums for the Nuka-Cola Challenge quest, as these Quantums will work the same as if you found one before having this Perk.
