Fallout 76 Guide

Fallout 76 will also feature the magazines of the previous games which can be collected but much like the Bobbleheads, they have changed a slightly in what they do for the player.

In the previous Fallout games, when a magazine was collected it provided a permanent increase in a particular attribute but in Fallout 76 once looted they will not be activated straight away and be in your inventory.

When the player is ready they can use the magazine to provide a temporary bonus for an hour and the magazine likely provides the same sort of effect as they did in the other titles.

Magazine bonuses can also be stacked if you can find the same one again, it will refill the timer.

Like Bobbleheads, they are instance level objects so once collected by a single player they will be removed from the world. How they spawn and placed in the world is still unconfirmed.

Perk Magazines

Below is a list of magazine perk effects that in Fallout 76 are a limited timed buff of 1 hour, something which is different from the previous games that have had permanent bonuses for your character.
