Fallout Shelter has had specially themed holiday quests for sometime but this week I decided to get in on the special season update during this Christmas. It seems the game adds a couple quests to sate your dystopian wasteland cheer in "The Spirit of Taking" and "Santa's Helpers." Besides these new quests there is also a decorated tree outside your vault with twinkle lights that help set a more cheery mood. The quests are set just like the others but the quest dialog boxes are set in green and the dialog is set to a very Fallout Christmas vibe. For instance with Santa's Helpers at one point my people went into a raider area claiming to be Santa's Helpers where I could try and spread Christmas cheer using nice words and singing songs or by fighting. Since I try to be nice around the holidays we sang songs and that got us a good ending where we earned a special Science outfit. During the beginning of a couple quests you can win a Santa costume and an in game character that I took a screenshot of. Besides the cool Santa outfit you can also get some elf costumers and I decided to send Santa and his elves out to the wasteland on the infinite explore mode. Santa does well exploring the wasteland and as you can see I need to bring him in soon to cash in on his loot and give him new stimpacks for his next loot run.

I found someone wearing the same clothes as your guy, but he has a different name. I invited him to my vault (dialog option). I did a few quests, but am out of Quantum, so I have to wait for my team to make it to the next quest.

Nice to hear! I haven’t spent any Quantum and I’m currently sitting on 99 bottles.

I’ve also been hoarding lunchboxes and have 12.

Damn, why are you hoarding?

Man, Fallout Shelter makes me want to play Fallout 4 again. LOL

Hoarding because there isn’t a reason I can see to open them. It’s just a random chance to get something in the game you could get otherwise so I don’t open them as late in as I am because I can craft mostly whatever I want or train someone to all 10’s.

It makes me want to play Fallout 4 too and since I haven’t actually beat it yet.

Ah. I haven't really hoarded, I use all the lunchboxes, pet carriers, and such that I can. I use Quantum for quests. But yeah, the things you get are random. However, since there's a holiday event going on, you can now get those, too. That's actually how I acquired my Santa suit.

Maybe it's not so much that I want to play it (Fallout 4) again, but more so that since Fallout Shelter uses Fallout 4 music, it reminds me of that time when Fallout 4 came out. I remember the Thanksgiving at home I really enjoyed and playing Ark, too. It was quite a rough start for me though. I'm still blown away by the fact that it's outsold Skyrim. I thought Skyrim was much more popular.

Skyrim might be more beloved than Fallout 4. Fallout 4 received more criticism than I think it was due because it simplified some of the dialog and RPG options. Since it wasn’t a clone of New Vegas some people were upset.

Hey Greg you’ll want to log into FS today as a special holiday bonus you get a couple pet carriers, lunchboxes and nuka bottles for free.

Sweet thanks for the head's up!

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 12/26/2017 at 04:51am

Uh, wait, I didn't get that. How are you playing the game? I'm playing it on Steam.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 12/26/2017 at 05:12am

Playing it on my iPhone. I wonder if it’s a mobile only bonus?

I had to play for about 10 minutes before I got it. Maybe less.
