Fallout 3 — a role-playing video game developed by Bethesda in 2008 — offers many cheat codes and guides to help you navigate this complicated game. 

AX.Vault-Tec C.E.O.

There are 20 Bobbleheads. Only two can be missed and you can't return to them. The first one is in Vault 101; before you leave the vault, grab it off your dad's desk. The second is at Raven Rock. It is on Level 2 in Colonel Autumn's office on the table. You only have one chance to get that one.
