These rocks are much easier to spot with Rex's Search and Mark perk, which highlights any container with usable items inside (i.e. Nuka-Cola, ammunition, etc.). If you don't have Rex, you can still identify them by the symbols marked on them. Some rocks will have nothing written on them, but will generally be a slightly different color than the surrounding rocks.
