Welcome to Nukapedia + The Vault Fallout Wiki
The definitive Fallout wiki with 37,107 articles
We are creating the ultimate guide to the Fallout series, and you can help!

Introduction
Fallout is a franchise of post-apocalyptic computer role-playing games created by Interplay Entertainment. Originally envisioned as a sequel to Wasteland using Steve Jackson's GURPS, Fallout eventually matured into something entirely its own: A mature post-nuclear setting with a retro-futuristic aesthetic, powered by the home-brewed SPECIAL system. Its unique visual identity draws on countless sources, from 1930s Art Deco, through 1950s Americana, to 80s and 90s classics like Mad Max or City of Lost Children.

The series encompasses six role-playing titles in the series (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76) and several spin-offs, including a squad-based tactical combat game (Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel), an action RPG dungeon-crawler for PlayStation 2 and Xbox (Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel), a vault simulation game (Fallout Shelter), and several tabletop games (Fallout: The Board Game, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Roleplaying Game, and the discontinued Fallout Warfare).

FO3 all bobbleheads.jpg
The Vault-Tec bobblehead figures were promotional Vault-Tec items. Each of the Vault Boy bobbleheads in Fallout 3 permanently increases one of the 7 statistics (S.P.E.C.I.A.L.) or one of the 13 skills of the player character. Players can store the bobbleheads they have found in their house in Megaton or in their Tenpenny Tower suite. Two of the achievements involve collecting Vault Boy bobbleheads. The first achievement is awarded for collecting 10 of them, and players earn the second for finding all 20 of them.

[edit]Did you know...

... that the destruction at the New Appalachian central trainyard was caused by a botched train robbery?

... that Stealth Boys generate a modulating field that transmits the reflected light from one side of an object to the other?

... that Fallout Tactics 2 and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2 were in development, but were eventually canceled?

... that the settlement of Megaton is constructed nearly entirely out of salvaged airplane parts from a nearby airfield?

... that you needed a special BADTFL permit to own combat armor if you were a civilian?

... that the Regulators in Fallout and the Regulators of Fallout 3 are entirely different organizations?

... that Vault 94 opened only a year after the bombs fell?
