Tips for Beginners in Fallout Shelter
Fallout fans can download Fallout Shelter to play while waiting for Fallout 4. It is a fun and addictive game. Right now, it is only available in iOS, but on Aug 13, Android users will get to experience shelter management at last. If you are looking to start playing Fallout Shelter, here are some few handy tips.
- More Rooms
Teaching you how to add a couple of essential rooms, such as the Power Station and Water Treatment, is the first thing that Fallout Shelter will do. As soon as the game hands over full control, it’s easy to get a room-happy, although you don’t have a choice in the matter. More power are required as you add more rooms. And some of your other facilities will go dark if you don’t have Dwellers assigned to that room. Making sure that you always have enough Dwellers to staff your Power Station is a the best way to go. Of all the rooms you’ll add, it’s by far the most important.
- Skillful Dwellers
In Fallout Shelter, it’s important to give suitable tasks to a dweller. Everyone has different skills and productivity. So, before you assign a dweller to a specific room such as Power Station, you need to make sure the dweller skills and stats are suitable for it. For example, Strength is the most important stats for power station. Skills and stats could be checked by tapping at each dweller. And before you move a dweller to a specific room, make sure their productivity score is high enough. If the score is 0, it meas that this dweller could not help anything in that room.
- Achieve Your Goals
The idea of “do whatever you want” is also applied in in Fallout Shelter. Bethesda does not give you a specific objectives like do A and then B. Instead, you could set your own goals and play it in the way you want. You could do the objectives “1” and then jump to number “4” if you want to. There’s no rule for it. There’s a reward after the objective is completed. Usually it is either Caps or Lunchboxes. Alternatively, you could purchase them with in-app purchases if you want to make the game faster – it’s really up to you.
- Raise your Wealth
Caps are your currency in Fallout Shelter. To help you get started, you will get some early in the game. After that, they will be needed for upgrading facilities, getting rid of rocks, or even spreading out with more rooms and features for your Dwellers to enjoy. Completing objectives is the best way to get more Caps, just like earning Lunchboxes. Cap rewards can even be found in Lunchboxes. Therefore, it’s important to frequently see what you can do to help your cause by checking in with your Pip-Boy. However, make sure not to get too spend-happy. There nothing worse than needing to add a Water Treatment, only to find that you exhausted all your money on Power Stations.
- Increase Population
Living Quarters is the most effective ways to increase the number of populations in your vault. Put all your jobless dwellers to the Living Quarters and wait for sometimes. They will automatically produce a new-born dweller. The most important part here is to do the population management since you need some amounts of population in order to unlock a new room. For example, you need to have 14 dwellers in the vault in order to unlock the “Medbay”. But before operating your population plan, please make sure to have enough workers in a major room like Power Station, Water Treatment, and Dining Hall if you do not want to deal with other headache problems.
Fallout Shelter is Coming to Android
We now know that the mobile game is arriving on August 13 for free, from the Google Play store all over the world – thanks to QuakeCon 2015, Bethesda’s annual fanfest.
What’s even cooler. To help you collect resources, fight off raiders and new threats like Deathclaw invasions and Mole rat infestations, a Fallout 4 character by the name of Mr. Handy will added to the Shelter roster. The update for both iOS and Android platforms will come out on the same day.
iOS gamers have been satisfying their intense hunger by overseeing their own vaults in the cute mobile game, Fallout Shelter, with Fallout 4 still five months away from release.
Android owners have been left out in the cold, so far. But now it is confirmed that Fallout Shelter is going to arrive on the said platform in August. That is judging on Bethesda’s Pete Hines response to a fan question on Twitter.
Yes, we’re also working on Fallout Shelter for Android. Hopefully out in a few months.
