Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet Overview

The following is a basic summary of the mechanics surrounding the Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet:

  • The Gauntlet is available from a weekly quest which requires players to have constructed the Overseer’s Office within your Fallout Shelter vault layout to access.
  • The objective in this quest is similar to other quests in Fallout Shelter with players selecting a team of 3 vault dwellers to go adventuring into the Wasteland. Once your destination is reached you’ll be presented with a building structure like other missions that contain various rooms of questions, loot and traditional elements like Radroach swarms.
  • Moving through the rooms you’ll answer 4 questions in total from Raiders and if you answer successfully you will be able to move on to the next room without combat. If you fail to answer correctly you will “lose your head” which sees you having to fight your way through the Raiders instead to get into the next room. Purposefully failing the questions to fight the Raiders does reward slightly better rewards as you can obtain their loot drops although significantly increases the time to complete the weekly quest and requires strong enough dwellers.
  • These four Fallout Shelter Game Show questions are selected from a fixed pool of 11 which is based on the weekly quest duration required to reach the location. This is between 14 hours and 1 day which can be sped up by spending Nuka-Cola Quantum like other quests.
  • Rewards for this weekly quest completion range from Nuka-Cola Quantum, pet carrier, Mister Handy, caps and lunchboxes along with various loose loot and Fallout Shelter junk you acquire from the environment.
  • There will be occasional items that can be looted from the Raider rooms similar to other quests so don’t forget to grab these on your adventures before moving to the next room.
