Sailor Novisextra advice: if you collect them after you recieved the jump pack (brotherhood) it is so much easier to reach higher floors etc.

Hellawes ILove this list since I was just missing 1 and could just look on the list for the one i didn't have. So glad the bobbleheads had different names and not all the same like other collectibles.

INCANTATI0NThanks for making the list with descriptions and in alphabetical order, made finding the ones I needed so much easier. Not to mention I often prefer a written guide to a video. Thumbs up :)

Radic0nThanks heaps for a written-guide, much prefer lists to videos! Perfect!

For the Charisma Bobblehead, I visited the Parsons State Insane Asylum, but I did not need kill any mercenaries there for Edward Deegan to offer me the quest when I found him at Bunker Hill.

BaronVoNewmanGreat guides as always man, been using your guides for achievements for years now!

SchinderdivIt's worth noting that "high level" might be subjective. I just went for the Big Guns bobblehead at level 61 & all enemies were only in the level 20 range - highest I saw in VAT was 24. Also, in my playthrough there were ZERO legendary enemies in the room with the bobblehead, only a few weak regulars. The only legendary I encountered was in the entrance to this vault.

ItsChillMurrayThis is the most useful guide on this subject. Well written and informative vs the bare minimum (throwing up a video or simply listing locations) like other guides. Thanks for the help!
