In Fallout 76, you can find Bobbleheads while exploring Appalachia, and can be collected – but they have changed in the way they affect the player.

Unlike previous Fallout games, both Bobbleheads and Magazines no longer provide permanent bonuses. Once obtained, they will remain in your inventory until they are “consumed”, at which point they will grant a bonus for a full hour – the bonus matching close to what that item did in previous fallout games. If you are able to find a second collectible of the same type, you can use it again to refill the current timer.

Currently, it is not known if Bobbleheads appear in specific locations, or if they are randomly placed in the world – as once a person grabs a Bobblehead, they disappear from the world in that instance.

Depending on the type of Bobblehead, they can grant different bonus, as seen below:

Below you will find a list of all locations in which bobbleheads have been documented to appear.

Note that even if you find a specific bobblehead type in this location, it is not guaranteed you will always find one on other visits, or that they will be in exact same spot at a given location.

Be sure to visit our Interactive Map of Appalachia for locations of Bobbleheads confirmed by staff and contributors alike!

At the Tyler County Fairgrounds, located in the northwest of The Forest, a Bobblehead has been sighted. Search the party shed on the corner of the property (which has jack-o-lanterns and birthday party supplies), and you may find a bobblehead on the long table behind a few plastic pumpkin baskets.

Another Bobblehead may be found over by the games section on the south side of the fairgrounds, hiding on top of one of the token machines.
