I have found roughly 50 lunchboxes out in the wasteland now and I have noticed the wide variety of things that spawn from them. The occurrence of anything useful seems very low though. Does anyone know the probability of the items that are eligible to spawn from the lunchboxes?

    It seems like it depends on luck, and here's a list of things you can get, but I have yet to see a formula anywhere.

  • I'd say about 99% pencils, from my experience

  • @CoqPwner: Wow, you're really lucky, free wood and lead. For me it's 99% plastic fork or knife XD

From the wikia, the possible items you can get are:


Mr. Gutsy model

Mr. Handy model

Protectron model

Sentry bot model

Eyebot model

Aid Items

Nuka Cola

Ice cold Nuka Cola

Nuka Cola Quantum

Ice cold Nuka Cola

Quantum Nuka

Cherry Bubblegum

Noodle cup

Gum drops

Dandy Boy Apples


Plastic fork

Plastic knife

Plastic spoon

Table knife

Dinner fork

Table spoon

Chalk Baseball

Economy wonderglue

Pen Pencil




Fusion core

There does not seem to be a proven formula for drop rate of any of these items, but it is worth noting that you are able to reload a save if you get an undesirable item, in order to try to get a better one.
