Fallout 4: bobblehead locations visual guide

As you wander the Wasteland, keep an eye out for the Commonwealth’s coolest treasures – Pip-boy bobbleheads. these cute collectibles grant pretty sweet bonuses both to skills and SPECIAL stats, but you’ll have to work for them; they’re usually found either deep in mission dungeons, or in dead-ends if you make the effort to clear all the enemies out of areas along the main story route.

We’ll be posting details of where we find these babies as we come across them. You can pay it forward by sharing your own finds, so we can document them for your fellow vault-dwellers.

Perception Bobblehead

Permanently increases Perception by 1.

In the Museum of Freedom in Concord. It’s on a desk in the upstairs room where you find the trapped settlers during the main quest mission When Freedom Calls.


Melee Bobblehead

Permanently gain +25% critical damage with melee weapons.

At the very top of Trinity Tower (two elevator rides and lots of stairs), in the cell where you first meet Strong.


Speech Bobblehead

All vendors permanently have 100 more caps for bartering.

In Vault 114. It’s on the desk in the room where Nick Valentine is locked up in the main story quest Unlikely Valentine.


Energy Weapons Bobblehead

Permanently gain +25% critical damage with energy weapons.

On a table between two fridges in the kitchen in the Fort Hagen Command Centre; that’s the nested section of the dungeon, so push on down to the lower reaches. The kitchen is a side room in the maze of corridors leading to Kellogg during the main quest Reunions.


Repair Bobblehead

Fusion cores permanently last 10% longer.

Hidden in a sniper’s perch at Corvega Assembly Plant. The area you want is to the west of the dungeon’s icon if you zoom your map right in. You need to climb a lot of winding stairs and kill a lot of baddies to get here. Good luck!


Intelligence Bobblehead

Intelligence permanently increased by 1.

On a computer in a small room in the northwest corner of the Boston Public Library. This dungeon is pretty close to Trinity Tower – search to the west to find it. If you end up in the subway, you need to exit and skirt the building to find the main entrance, which may be locked.


Medicine Bobblehead

Stimpaks permanently restore +5% health.

On the desk with the terminal in the room where you find Curie during the quest Hole in the Wall, triggered on your second visit to Vault 81.


Big Guns Bobblehead

On a table in the middle level of Vault 95, which you visit on Cait’s sidequest, benign Intervention. Take the door opposite the entrance to the Facilities Wing to reach this room.


More coming soon.
