Fallout Shelter Exploit Lets You Grab Lots Of Lunchboxes And Caps Quickly

by Kyle Hilliard on Jun 30, 2015 at 02:46 PM

Fallout Shelter players have a discovered a small glitch in the game that grants a whole lot of lunchboxes early in the game.

Unfortunately, this bug won't help you if you are far along. If, however, you start the game over, or start a new vault, the bug allows you to grab unlimited lunchboxes right away.

Early in your vault, you will come across the easily attainable objectives seen in the image below. If you never claim the rewards from completing the 'Sell 1 weapon or outfit' or 'Equip 1 dweller with an outfit' objectives, the other objective will cycle between the 'Collect 50 food,' 'Collect 50 water,' and 'Level up a dweller' objectives (and possibly a few others depending on your game). As long as you don't redeem the first two objectives, you can continually obtain and redeem the rewards of the third allowing you to stock up on caps and lunchboxes.

Among those lunchboxes, you're bound to run into Preston Garvey – a character who will appear in Fallout 4. You can find out more about him here.

Our Take
I personally don't see the appeal of Fallout Shelter, outside of its charming aesthetic, and stand by this tip for the game I offered last week. That being said, I do recognize that I seem to be the only person who feels this way, so if this helps your vault run smoother, I am glad to help.
