Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

Get your Vault started right!

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

Playing Fallout Shelter is a great way to enjoy the lore of Fallout without a long-term commitment. Whether you play on a mobile device, console, or PC, there are plenty of tips and tricks to make the most of your time in the wasteland and grow a successful Vault as the overseer.

From what rooms to build to how many Dwellers to send into the wasteland, there are several ways to optimize your experience with Fallout Shelter. We've compiled a guide with the best practices when playing so that your Vault will thrive. It takes a bit of practice, but we're here to help!

Start Out Slow

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

The biggest problem you'll have is expanding too quickly. It's exciting to unlock new rooms and have access to new tools to make your Vault even better, but building too quickly can lead to devastating consequences.

To build new rooms, you'll need to have more Dwellers, and without a balance in your resources, you'll quickly see power, food, and water dropping. Rather than struggle to keep up, build your Vault one room at a time and upgrade as needed.

Invest In Crafting

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

You'll unlock different workshops, like the Weapon, Outfit, and Theme Workshops. These rooms are expensive, but allow you to craft new items for your Dwellers to use.

Some weapons and outfits can only be obtained through crafting!

It takes time and resources, but it's a great way to use junk in Fallout Shelter. You can free up space and get better gear for your Dwellers, which will help them defend the Vault and explore the wasteland.

Send Dwellers To Explore

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

Dwellers can go into the wasteland to find junk, weapons, outfits, and more. It will take time, but it's worth the wait to have them come back with their arms full of items and bottle caps.

It's dangerous, so make sure they have the best SPECIAL stats and good weapons before heading out. You can also check on them to ensure they haven't died. If they have, you'll either have to permanently remove them from the Vault or spend precious bottle caps to revive them.

You can't revive dead Dwellers on Survival Mode .

Rush Your Rooms

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

If you're short on resources, you can Rush the room to get more. The downside is that there's a chance for an incident to occur, but if the odds are low, it's worth the risk.

A Rush can prevent you from having the power go out, starving, or having to deal with radiation in your Vault. You can have several successful Rushes in a row, just be warned that with each one, the odds of an incident increase.

Complete Objectives

Objectives are like guideposts to help you improve your Vault. You can earn bottle caps, Nuka Cola Quantum, Lunchboxes, and Pet Carriers, which will help you strengthen your Vault and add unique bonuses.

You can remove one objective a day for free, but the rest will cost you. It's worth removing any that you can't complete, whether you're not able to give up extra weapons or you don't want to risk Radscorpion attacks just for a reward.

Train Your Dwellers

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

The beginning Dwellers you encounter will have low SPECIAL stats. Thankfully, they don't have to stay useless for long. You can build training rooms to help increase SPECIAL stats over time.

Improving stats will help the Dwellers become more efficient. If your Dwellers have babies, these stats can be inherited. Build a Vault filled with SPECIAL Dwellers to have a (somewhat) pleasant time in the wasteland.

Find The Mysterious Stranger

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

If you hear a mischievous piano riff, stop what you're doing immediately. Start looking around for the Mysterious Stranger. He wears a fedora and a trench coat. If you find him, grab him!

Catching him rewards you with a random sum of bottle caps. We've managed to get over 3,000 bottle caps in one go, though he sometimes gives as few at 98.

Go On Quests

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

Once you unlock the Overseer's Office, you can send Dwellers out on quests. These will take time, but you can actively take a role in your Dwellers' lives and have them seek out more bottle caps and rewards in the wasteland.

Make sure to prepare your Dwellers with good weapons and gear so that they can survive. That also means sending them with Stimpaks and RadAways to ensure they live through the encounter and come home safely.

Prepare For The Worst

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

No matter how hard you try, incidents will happen. It's important to arm your Dwellers, upgrade your Vault Door, and keep a steady supply of Stimpaks and RadAways on hand. An incident will make a bad situation worse – and it's not a matter of if, but when.

Your production will be interrupted, and you'll need to Rush rooms to get back on track. Don't panic, take a deep breath, and try to prepare for the next one.

Keep Dwellers Happy

Fallout Shelter: 10 Beginner Tips

Above all, keep your Dwellers happy. Increasing Dweller happiness makes them more efficient, which increases productivity. Make sure they are healthy, in a good environment, and have plenty of resources.

If someone looks like they are in a bad mood, assign them to the Living Quarters so they can talk with someone and take a break. Dwellers need time to unwind and remove themselves from stressfull situations, so be mindful of your Dwellers' moods to keep your Vault on track.
