Updated: Aug 12, 2023

Farming Tips and Tricks


Sugar Bombs are a player cell activated, per server spawn, pick up history list item. If you don't know what any of that means, please have a read over my how spawns work guide first.


There are two types of Sugar Bombs in game.


Clean Version

The clean non-irradiated version is pretty much useless. Keep a handful of the clean versions for the eat x amount of pre-war food score challenge and sell the rest.


The clean versions can be found:

  • On Deathclaws, Scorched, and other enemies

  • In US Government supply drops

  • Via the Sunshine Meadows Industrial Farm workshop


Dirty Version (irradiated)



The other version is the irradiated "dirty" version. This version is the most useful and one of the hardest to farm for.


The most efficient way to farm large quantities of irradiated sugar bombs at once is to claim 10 or more workshops and place one of the below-mentioned collectrons in each workshop. It takes about an hour for the collectrons to fill up.

While they are out collecting, go and check some sugar bomb fixed spawn locations but keep in mind that you may not get as many spawn on a private server.


Alternatively, if you have the caps available, you can purchase them from player vendors and NPC vendors as you see them.


You can also arrange a trade with other players for them.

Fixed spawn locations

Co-written by Angie "Jinx" Bennett, Kate Passmore, Katie Key, and Kristina Gove.


Below is a data-mined list of every single fixed spawn location for irradiated Sugar Bombs in game.


There is a 50% chance spawn rate on these locations. Due to how spawns work in the game, it is recommended to always farm for world objects on public servers.


If the sugar bombs are not there when you first visit, either it hasn't spawned for you or another player has taken it. It can be worth doing a second trip to these locations while on the same server on the off chance that they will respawn.


If you find irradiated sugar bombs in locations not listed below, then you have found a pre-war food spawn location. These spawn locations use the pre-war food loot pool. So while you could get a box of sugar bombs there today, it could be a box of fancy lad's snack cakes tomorrow.



You can farm the below sugar bombs spawn locations in one of two ways:


The first way is to collect all the sugar bombs, hit the book house, server hop, collect the sugar bombs, hit the book house, server hop, rinse and repeat.


The second way will net you more sugar bombs but you are going to need two Xboxes and or a friend. To make it easier to explain, you will be player #2, and your friend or second Xbox is going to be player #1.


  • Player #1 needs to reset their pick-up history list and then server hop to a new server.

  • Player #1 then needs to fast travel to the first sugar bomb location and stand next to it.

  • Player #2 needs to wait until Player #1 is standing next to the sugar bombs before fast travelling to the first sugar bombs location (this is an important step).

  • Once player #2 arrives, player #2 can pick up the sugar bombs.

  • Player #1 then needs to fast travel to the second location and stand next to it.

  • Player #2 needs to wait until Player #1 is standing next to the sugar bombs before fast travelling to the second sugar bombs location.

  • Once player #2 arrives, player #2 can pick up the sugar bombs.

  • Rinse and repeat for the next location

  • Server hop and do it all again

Player #1 must not touch the sugar bombs at all. If player #1 accidentally picks up the sugar bombs, then they will need to go and reset their pick-up history list, server hop and start the run again.
