It must be what people use to get past Bobbleheads because quite frankly I have no clue. I have tried everything on them, every weapon and every tower and nothing works. I can't hit them with the sniper, or anything at all. Time to throw in the towel?

I have found the sniper rifle to be very effective. Just aim for their heads, zoomed in with the scope. Do set it up so that if you miss you get a chance at a second shot.
The secondary fire of the rocket launcher locks on to the appropriate weak points, just upgrade it for multiple shots.

I've been sniping them. If you have a long approach, like on Arc, you can kind of get a rhythm on the approach and get a good shot on multiples in a row. Slow fields also help a lot, since it not only slows forwards progress, but also the bobbing. There are definitely some towers that will do some damage to them, but of the ones I've tried, none of them is something you can count on, just a nice bonus when it does.

I followed Tiger's video example for Whirlpool, and can vouch that both 1) an upgraded assault gun, with a little bit of slowfield and slow gun, and 2) REX or assault grenade, preferably passed through holo towers, works pretty well as well (aiming needs are less precise than with the sniper, and his methods work better with very large numbers of enemies). They gave me a lot of problems the first time I encountered them but they are definitely killable.

The sniper is my main weapon and I have no issues taking bobbleheads out. They're actually one of my favorite enemies to take down--because they're so easy. With a fully upgraded sniper, you can pretty much one-shot them.

yes, shooting bobbleheads on glade is easy (yes i looked through your stats), you can take em long before they reach the maze, but further levels throw far worse combos at you, my personal nightmare is hoverers, bobblehead & tanks, the ultimate damage block

Snipers don't work quite as well on Whirlpool, in part because the numbers get so large, and they come in the combos that Fox mentions - Tanks and Bobbleheads, or Hoverers and Bobbleheads. At least it didn't work as well for me - I could certainly take a good number out, but not enough to make it through the map that way.

For some reason I just don't have trouble with those guys--tanks, bobbleheads, or hoverers. My main hard-to-beat enemies are chargers, runners (sorta) and other fast-moving/numerous guys.

I struggled with Bobbleheads for awhile, and they still frustrate me sometimes. Got to get into the rhythm of the sway. I find slowfields help too.
