Fallout 4 Bobbleheads


How to find missing Bobbleheads?: In-game the Bobbleheads are hidden throughout the Commonwealth. These Vault-Tec Bobblehead figures are promotional Vault-Tec items that you can pick up to collect when you stand next to it. It can be confirmed as being Bobbleheads simply by walking up to it, as the on-screen text will then tell you can press the action button/key to “Take Bobbleheads” (X button on PlayStation 4 / A button on Xbox One & PC).


Tip: In your inventory under “Misc” you can see exactly which Vault-Tec Bobbleheads you have found. Every Bobblehead has its own name, making it easy to keep track.

Does the game save each Bobbleheads you collect?: Yes, the game will automatically save the Bobbleheads you just collected if you picked up the Bobblehead, so you don’t have to play to the end of the quest. After picking up each collectible you can safely quit the quest you’re on without losing collectibles progress, but it’s always recommended you save your game before you quit playing.

Note: None of the Bobbleheads are missable. So you can go back to each (often high-level) area and pick them up at any time. But because they give you great permanent bonus or perk, you’ll want to find them early on in your game. Either set the game to easy & run past all enemies or it’s recommended you get to level 25 before attempting to get them the normal way.

Protip: Bobbleheads can boost your special stat to 11 ONLY if you are already at 10 when you pick them up, otherwise they simply boost it one stat point and you are UNABLE to manually raise it to 11 later.
