Fallout 3 Bobblehead Guide


Make sure you're in the eastern ruins. You'll find the Bobblehead on a desk in the upper level. If you're stuck in the western ruins, you can find a bridge on the upper floor that'll lead to the eastern side.

Above: The Bethesda Ruins is northeast of Megaton. 




You'll find Dunwich Building in the very southwestern corner of the world map. This is one of those areas where you'll need to climb up and jump down to different levels to get to the right area.

Take your first right and head up the stairs. Head left at the first intersection and go right into the room with all the holes in the floor. Drop down. Head through the door in the northwest corner and continue to reach the door to the Forsaken Dunwich Ruins.

Head up the stairs and keep going straight. Hang a left in the dark room at the end of the hall and continue up the stairs. Take your first left and stay to your left as you proceed down the hall. Make sure you turn left at the fire extinguisher and pass the room with the holes in the ground. Continue sticking to your left and drop down to the lower level. Head through the door to the south and proceed to reach the Virulent Chambers.

Drop down several levels and head through the door to the south. The next path will lead you down and up several flights of stairs. You'll eventually find a Bobblehead on the ground right before the exit.


Above: No MC Hammer jokes here



Arefu is northwest of Vault 101 and directly south of Paradise Falls. You'll find the Bobblehead in Evan King's house in the very back of the settlement.


Above: Don’t underestimate the Repair skill. It’ll help you maintain and improve the quality of all your gear



Vault 106 is northwest of Vault 101 and south of Paradise falls. Make your way to the Living Quarters and head through the southeast east door. Follow the winding path and you should see the Science Bobblehead waiting for you on a shelf in the back of the room.




Are you ready to fight some robots? Good! There's a ton of them guarding this building, so stock up on Stimpacks and make sure you're well equipped for a major shootout. Head left up the stairs, jump towards the big pipe and head through the door on your right. Stay to your right and work your way past the room with the filing cabinets. Circle around the building and drop down to the floor below. Pass the two Nuka-Cola machines to reach the Depot Training Wing.

Head straight to the edge of the room and proceed through the door on your left. At the first intersection, head left. Pass the American flag and take a right at the end of the hallway. When you reach the locker room, head through the door to your right. Pass the sandbags and go through the door to your right to reach the Depot Offices.

Proceed straight through the door ahead and take the stairs to your right. Take the next flight of stairs straight ahead of you up and go through the door to your left. Pass the reception area, head up the stairs and take a right. Climb up the rubble ahead of you to reach the floor above you and head through the door to the National Guard Depot. You have now gone through many ridiculous circles to reach an electric switch that was two floors above you when you first entered the National Guard Depot. Pull the damned switch and jump down to enter the blast door. Continue down into the armory, where you'll find the Small Guns Bobblehead as well as a HUGE cache of weapons.


Above: You can help yourself to a ton of free weapons and ammunition while visiting the National Guard Depot 

Above: You’ll need to work your way up to the top floor to pull this switch before you can proceed through the locked door near the entrance

    If you have the DL downloads on the disk then go to point lookout. There you need to got to the mansion (which is pointed out to you when you get there) an help the old goul out an then become his private investigator on the people attacking his mansion. Hen he sends you there you'll have to go pick seeds of the mother of plants to get into their hideout. When that happens you'll knock out an go on a total trip with things all around you. You dont die so dont worry about, but on the way out of there is 6 bobble heads in your way (you cant miss them) an just follow the road ahead it really weird... They game will exsplain the whole thing when you leave point lookout.

    You realize this page is just for the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. bobbleheads first right? Medicine isn't one of those skills. Click next page and it will list the rest. this is why people need to read.

    Two years later, and people are still getting help from this guide. This is one of, if not the best, online guides I've found. Most are text documents that are not broken down in specific areas, like Bobbleheads. I'm off to the Rep. of Dave.

    thankyou thankyou so much, having the videos is way more useful then the guide's instructions!
  • Geoffish - January 7, 2010 9:27 p.m.

    might be worth mentioning that if you get the broken steel expansion pack at level 30 it gives you the option to take a perk called Nearly Perfect, which makes all your specials 9. Then if you get the special bobble heads afterwards it can raise them all up to 10!

    If Lucas Simms is dead, then you just have to loot his body to find the key. If he's still alive, you just have to go into his house during the day. It's only locked at night.
  • penguinsrule3 - October 27, 2009 5:06 a.m.

    Thank you!! You should do a feature on the best and creepiest vaults of the fallout universe
  • Flump911 - October 25, 2009 11:37 p.m.

    note about the strength bobblehead u do not need to kill lucas simms, he does not need to die, and you do not need to pick his lock. go to the house at the evening while lucas is at home at the door will be unlocked for you... :D
  • MrKwantos - December 10, 2008 4:02 p.m.

    I see there is some confusement anout the strength and Medicine Bobbleheads. The strength Bobblehead can you find in Lucas Sims house To get in: - Pick the lock - Pickpocket the key from Lucas Simms - Kill Lucas Simms for the key - Accept the quest to blow up Megaton and rat out the guy in the Saloon to Lucas Simms. Then follow Lucas Simms to the Saloon and watch the guy who wants you to blow up Megaton kill Lucas Simms. - Disarm the bomb. Now the door is unlocked from time to time. If you decide to blow up Megaton, MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE BOBBLEHEAD BEFORE YOU DO IT! Once Megaton is gone, so is your bobblehead, Now about the Medicine Bobblehead. You can get it: - When you turn 16, Your father will look if you are able to take tho goat test, on your fathers desk stands the Bobblehead. - During the quest ESCAPE! - In the quest where you return to Vault 101. You can get this quest, by walking around the area around Vault 101. Eventually, you ll revieve a signal from Amata, asking for your help. I am not exactly sure when this signal starts to trsnamit. During the mission where i had to retrieve the G.E.C.K.
  • KSIMJNF - November 27, 2008 4:55 a.m.
