This page describes perk magazines and various other magazines in Fallout 76.
  • The content is not described in full detail on this page. For details, please see the respective articles.
  • For items that grant abilities in other Fallout games, please see "skill book".
  • For an overview of Fallout 76 content, please refer to "Portal:Fallout 76".

General informationEdit

Magazines grant increases to relevant skills or damage for a temporary duration. For example, the Grognak the Barbarian issue 1 grants 10% increased melee damage for 30 minutes. Using a skill magazine consumes it, and another will need to be obtained to implement the increase again once the allotted time has elapsed.
