Vault-Tec bobbleheads are aid items in Fallout 76.


Vault-Tec bobbleheads are found throughout Appalachia. Bobbleheads were exclusive Vault-Tec merchandise available to executive-level employees of the Vault-Tec Corporation.[1] They were also offered as a gift to individuals who had been accepted into vaults.[2]


The Vault-Tec bobbleheads in Fallout 76 are not permanent, and are consumables that provide temporary effects lasting one real-world hour (two hours with Curator), and multiple copies of each bobblehead can be held. There are fixed locations for a bobblehead to potentially spawn, although the ones that do spawn are usually randomized (with few exceptions).

Most bobbleheads do not spawn at set locations. Instead, they are randomized across a set number of locations. Bobbleheads are affected by physics, so they may fall off of platforms and may not be in the exact location. Additionally, other Vault Dwellers may loot bobbleheads, preventing them from appearing.
