Fallout 3 Bobblehead Guide

Complete your stat-boosting collection with videos, maps, and detailed directions

If you've been playing Fallout 3, you've probably found a few Bobbleheads tucked away on dusty shelves and desks. You'll need to collect at least ten to unlock the "Yes, I Play with Dolls" achievement and all twenty for the "Vault-Tec C.E.O." achievement. But even if you don't give a hoot about your gamer score, you'll still need to collect every one of these wobbly figurines to create the ultimate, kickass, Wasteland survivor. That's because there are seven Bobbleheads that boost your core S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats, and thirteen that give a healthy bonus to your skills. This means you'll be able to spread out your points more every time you level-up, allowing you to max out even more skills.

Having trouble finding any of these stat-boosting collectibles? Read on for videos, maps, and detailed directions that explain how to find all twenty Bobbleheads. Although we've done our best to avoid any major spoilers, explaining how to find each one may reveal a few details that you may not want to see. So scroll on with care, fellow Wastelanders.

You’ll find the Strength Bobblehead in Lucas Simm’s home in Megaton. It’s the very first shack on your immediate right when you enter the city. It'll be locked, so you'll either have to pick the lock, steal the key from Lucas, kill Lucas and take the key, or get Mr. Burke to kill Lucas by reporting him. Enter the house, climb up the stairs and enter Lucas Simm’s bedroom on your left. Check the top of his desk for a boost to your Strength.

WARNING: If you’re planning to take the evil route by blowing up the city of Megaton, make sure you grab the Strength Bobblehead first! If you don’t, it’ll be blown to smithereens along with the rest of the city.
