This page describes perk magazines and various other magazines in Fallout 76.

  • For items that grant abilities in other Fallout games, please see "skill book".
  • For an overview of Fallout 76 content, please refer to "Portal:Fallout 76".

General informationEdit

All magazines grant increases to relevant skills or damage for 1 hour (2 hours if using the Curator perk). Using a skill magazine consumes it, and another will need to be obtained to implement the increase again once the allotted time has elapsed.
