Fallout Shelter Guide: How to Remove Dwellers from Your Vault

| |

We are back with more helpful guides for Fallout Shelter (or at least I hope that you find them helpful). After learning how to have babies and how to sell items in the game, it’s time to move forward and see how to remove Dwellers from your Fallout Shelter Vault.

I know that it’s usually the other way around – you actually need MORE dwellers, but in some cases you might have some waiting with better stats, so you might want to actually remove one or more from your base.

Unfortunately, you can’t directly kick somebody out of the Vault – but there is a trick that I will teach you which is just as good!

Removing Dwellers in Fallout Shelter

All you have to do is to select the Dweller that you want to remove and place him or her in a room that you can rush: so either a Diner, a Water Treatment Station or the Power Generator will work.

Next, start rushing production as often as possible. You will start failing more often and with each failure, the Dweller’s health will decline quite a bit.

Keep doing so until they will eventually die and when given the option, don’t choose to revive them. They will be removed and you will have an extra spot in your base – or at least a Dweller you no longer needed removed.

And there you have it! You have now managed to remove your unwanted Dweller from the Vault and free up some space for new and better ones!

If you want to go the good Overseer route and make sure that all Dwellers are always happy, we have a guide for that too.

    Put dwellers into a storage room until you have a room that allows you to train them with a S.P.E.C.I.A.L.This way, you can have TONS of dwellers.

  2. Agreed Kwistas… send them out unarmed, check on them in an hour; if they do well, great, recall them, if not, remove them.

  3. Hello there. There’s a method to kick your dweller directly, just drag your unwanted dweller outside of your Vault. And then, there will be a red icon that you can press to evict / kick the designated dweller.
