All Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet Questions & Answers Guide

Last Updated on January 8, 2024 by Samuel Franklin

With this Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet questions and answers guide players will conquer the recurring raider themed quest and not lose your head in the process. Available weekly the Game Show Gauntlet is a test of your broader Fallout franchise game knowledge and with the correct answers players can avoid fighting the Raiders for an efficient quest completion while obtaining the weekly account rewards.

During this quest players receive a pool of questions based on the quest duration time that are all included below to enable quick completion. For new players wanting to learn the basics of this event quest I have also provided an overview section based on my Fallout Shelter experience and answer some of the common community questions. Note that this page has spoilers for multiple games in the Fallout franchise as these are referenced in the Fallout Shelter game show.

To access specific duration quest pools quickly use the following links: 14 Hour, 15 Hour, 16 Hour, 17 Hour, 18 Hour, 19 Hour, 20 Hour, 21 Hour, 22 Hour, 23 Hour, 24 Hour.


Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet Overview

The following is a basic summary of the mechanics surrounding the Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet for new players seeking to optimise this important weekly challenge:

  • 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 content.
  • This quest has similar mechanics to other quests in Fallout Shelter with players selecting a team of 3 vault dwellers from your personal vault to adventure into the Wasteland. After the quest timer (14 to 24hrs) finishes players will reach a building structure like other missions that contain rooms of questions, loot and fights like Radroach swarms.
  • Moving through the building rooms players will answer 4 questions in total from groups of 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 requires players to fight the Raiders instead. Purposefully failing the questions to fight the Raiders does result in slightly better rewards as you can obtain their loot drops although significantly increases the time to complete the weekly quest and requires strong combat dwellers so this is an advanced mechanic for established players.
  • The four Fallout Shelter Game Show questions players receive are selected from a fixed pool of 11 options which is based on the weekly quest duration required to reach the location. This is between 14 hours and 24 hours which can be sped up by spending Nuka-Cola Quantum like other quests although I don’t recommend players spend the premium currency to speed up this particular quest duration.
  • Rewards for this weekly quest include Nuka-Cola Quantum, pet carrier, Mister Handy, caps and lunchboxes along with various loose loot and Fallout Shelter junk you acquire from the building.
  • Occasional items can be looted from the Raider rooms, similar to other quests, so don’t forget to grab these during your adventures before moving to the next room to maximise your rewards.


Fallout Shelter Game Show Gauntlet Questions and Answers

The below correct answers to the game show questions are presented in quest duration order, each answer should be read carefully as some of the answer pools use similar answers that can trick players when rushing through this quest content. If players would rather fight the raiders which will take longer but provide a small increase in overall loot you can also use these to avoid selecting the correct option.

Fallout Shelter is more than just a mobile game for Sam, it was a wasteland oasis that he built during the agonising wait for Fallout 4. He meticulously cultivated his personal Vault 111 to be a sanctuary for vault dwellers from the post-apocalyptic chaos with no resource or room placement wasted. Eventually Sam transitioned his vault management skills to the Steam version of Fallout Shelter where the optimisation challenge and light RPG mechanics of wasteland exploration continued to keep him entertained.
