Fallout 4 is one of the biggest and most diverse open-world RPGs in recent times and it is filled with all sorts of collectibles. The game has three different kinds of collectibles: Vault-Tec Bobbleheads, Perk Books and Magazines, and Holotapes. In this comprehensive and detailed guide, we will list all of them along with their locations. For convenience, we are not including collectibles found via the Creation Club and cut content.
