All 20 Bobblehead Locations in Fallout 4

Collect them all and be the envy of the Commonwealth.

by Matthew Kevin Mitchell

Are you wondering where all 20 Bobblehead Locations in Fallout 4 are? Vault-Tec Bobbleheads were created as merchandise for executive-level employees of the Vault-Tec Corporation. They were also gifted to specific individuals who were accepted into Vaults. Each Bobblehead will permanently increase your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stat by one or provides boosts to weapons and traits. Bobbleheads are spread throughout the Commonwealth. Unfortunately, these Bobbleheads can be hard to access because of being guarded by groups of enemies, locked behind quests, or being easy to miss. Here is everything you need to know about all 20 Bobblehead locations in Fallout 4.
