Characteristics[edit | edit source]
Each issue of RobCo Fun collected adds a unique holotape to the Sole Survivor's inventory. When used, the holotape plays a game based on a retro video game. The holotapes can be used at any time, provided they are in the Sole Survivor's inventory and can be played on either their Pip-Boy or on any terminal. Additionally, the holotape can also be used on the Fallout Pip-Boy mobile app.

- All of the magazines can be found in locations the player character will be directed to during the main story.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The Pipfall magazine's cover character is wearing a "101" shirt underneath his jacket. This is a reference to Fallout 3, in which the Lone Wanderer grows up in Vault 101.
- The comic name and the fact it has a game inside it is a reference to Amiga Fun, a comic that gave away free games much like RobCo Fun does.
- Zeta Invaders is a reference to the Zetan aliens, which were first named in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.
- The title of Zeta Invaders is also a reference to the classic video game Space Invaders.
