How To Get More Dwellers In Fallout Shelter
There are a few different ways to get Dwellers in Fallout Shelter.
From The Wasteland – This is the way you will get most of your early game Dwellers. The game will hook you up with about 10-12 of them right off the bat and from there it drops of VERY quickly. I was able to get about 3 extra before my first baby was born. You can increase the odds of getting a wasteland Dweller by building a radio room in your Vault. If you upgrade it you will get an even higher chance. I am not sure yet if building multiple gets you more or not, I am currently testing it.
Babies, Babies, Babies! – This is the most reliable way to get your Vault population up. Bring a male and female Dweller up to the living quarters and wait for the magic to happen. To speed this up give them some sort of Charm outfit so they woo each other faster. The baby will take around 4 hours to be born and about the same to grow up to useable Dweller. Remember that babies do still take resources so prepare for that!
I like to have most of the woman in my vault pregnant at the same time so my population grows quickly. This does prevent the women Dwellers from dealing with disasters though, so watch out for that. If you do this then you REALLY need to make sure you have extra resources.
Lunchboxes – My strongest Dwellers have come from random Lunchbox opening I got form objectives. Early on they can be the best to send out to the Wasteland for extra loot and Caps. Later though they are best used in the Vault to increase productivity. You can take the armor from a rare Dweller and put it on someone else so they can explore the Wasteland. I do not recommend buying Lunchboxes, they are not needed to progress in the game.
