Bethesda has overhauled Fallout 4 in such a way that every SPECIAL stat is fantastic in its own way. Not only does each stat have its own balanced effect in-game, but they are now tied to a dynamic Perk tree, pretty much nixing all chances of being a "jack of all trades".

It used to be that Fallout players could get away with pulling SPECIAL points away from a specific stat to fuel better ones, but Fallout 4 doesn't have a "dump stat" so to speak. Luckily the game still has bobbleheads, which are a must-have to round out and smooth your character's prowess. Whether you've skimped in Agility or pulled a ton of points away from Perception, our bobblehead guide will show you where each of these comical collectibles are hiding so you can shore up those rough edges.

Fallout 4 has 20 bobbleheads this time around, and you'll notice right away that these collectibles are a bit different. The SPECIAL bobbleheads--Strength, Agility, etc--all raise the specified stat point by 1. Bobbleheads like Melee, Repair, Science and Small Guns, however, give you extra perks. You can find the full range of effects and locations in our comprehensive checklist below.

Be sure to scroll down below the checklist to find the convenient zone sections for each bobblehead.
