Fallout Shelter Update Adds Item Scrapping, 3D Touch, More

The update allows users to scrap their unwanted outfits and weapons to earn Junk items that can be used in the game’s crafting system.

Bethesda Softworks launched update 1.5 for Fallout Shelter on iOS and Android. The Vault-building game is set in the popular Fallout video game universe, and it allows players to construct an underground Vault and protect its residents from the Wasteland at the surface.

Update 1.5 allows users to scrap their unwanted outfits and weapons to earn Junk items that can be used in the game’s crafting system. In addition, new customization options have been added to the game’s Barbershop room, which allows players to change the appearance of their Vault Dwellers. This includes the ability to make Dwellers look like Ghouls (mutated humans from the Fallout universe).

Elsewhere, players can craft new civilian outfits for their Dwellers, or find these outfits in lunchboxes.

Finally, the game has been updated with 3-D Touch for players on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. This allows players to skip the game’s main menu and load a specific Vault by pressing on the game’s icon on their home screen. Users can also use 3D Touch to assign Dwellers to rooms. To be specific, users can press on a Dweller to select them, and press on a room to assign them to the room. Pressing on a storage room, meanwhile, allows users to access their inventory.

Fallout Shelter is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
