Location: This one is hidden in Poseidon Energy. You’ll need to either pick a Master Lock to enter the facility, or swim through highly radioactive water. Going through the outflow pipes in the back is the longer way, but it’s great if you can’t pick master locks (thanks zebeazy!). If you choose the former, climb onto the catwalk once you’re inside. In the middle of the room, there’s an office suspended above the floor, guarded by turrets, several foot soldiers and a lvl 39 mini-boss called Cutty. The bobblehead is on the desk with the broken terminal. Description: “Always be ready to take one for the team.” Bonus: Your Endurance has been permanently increased by 1.

Location: Inside the broadcast room of Gunners Plaza. Go through the front door and go straight, around the statue, until you hit a wall. If you can open Master Locks, go around the wall and straight into the broadcasting room (has “On Air” sign above door). If not, go left and use the elevator to go down. One of the enemies in the basement has the key. The bobblehead is on the counter. Description: “Because it’s easier to have courage from a safe distance away.” Bonus: Gain 25% critical damage when using ballistic weapons. Small guns location video guide
