Fallout Shelter is one of the popular games to ever come out. In fact, the Google Play Store dubbed it as one of the Google Play Best of 2015. It is a simulation game where you build an underground shelter where survivors (who are called Dwellers) can live and thrive. This is possible in the game since you can build more than just living quarters and provide basic supplies.
You can actually build facilities that can produce food and water, provide medical care, power and electricity, and even entertainment. There are also facilities that dwellers can use to train and increase certain attributes. Now, these facilities won’t just function by themselves, you will have to assign dwellers to make them work. You can assign any dweller to any facility, but each facility works better if the dwellers assigned are high on certain attributes. You can check out this link to learn or download Fallout Shelter.
Aside from operating the facilities, dwellers can also explore the outside world and gather treasures and supplies. Now dwellers are not created equal, there are certain dwellers that are better than the other. But the top dwellers in the game right now are called Legendary Dwellers, which contain high attributes, as well as better equipment and weapon. There are currently 23 Legendary Dwellers right now and this article will discuss each one and how to acquire them.
The Different Legendary Dwellers in Fallout Shelter
Fallout Shelter currently has 23 Legendary Dwellers. According to an article from IGN, Legendary Dwellers would have 40 SPECIAL stat distributed to their attributes and come with outfit and weapon. The weapons and outfit can be removed and equipped to other dwellers. Legendary Dwellers will also start at a high level, which makes them more powerful.
They are just way better than regular or even Rare Dwellers. Now each Legendary Dweller is not created equal some will be better than the others. This Fallout Shelter guide will discuss each Legendary Dweller. This is to provide you with an idea of who they are and their attributes.
1. Sarah Lyons
Many consider Sarah Lyons as the best Legendary Dweller in the game right now. The main reason for this is that her SPECIAL stat is geared more for combat. She has high Strength and Endurance, as well as decent Perception and Charisma, which are attributes needed for combat. She is also equipped with the Wazer Wifle, which has a 12-17 damage, and the Power Armor. Her only downside is that her Luck and Agility are on the low side.
2. Star Paladin Cross
She is another good Legendary Dweller, primarily because of her armor and weapon. She also wears the Power Armor and uses the Smugglers End weapon, which has a 7-12 damage. She has high Charisma and Perception, and a decent Strength. But her Endurance is very low, which doesn’t make her a good combat dweller.

Acquiring Legendary Dwellers
The only way to acquire Legendary Dwellers right now is through the Lunchboxes. And since lunchboxes are based on luck, you will need to open a lot of them to increase your chances of acquiring Legendary Dwellers. You can also choose to spend real money and buy the Legendary Dwellers. But that’s not really advisable, since you can still have a decent shelter, even if you don’t have Legendary Dwellers.
You can choose to create Legendary Babies. But this doesn’t create the actual Legendary Dweller. When you do this, you just pass on the high SPECIAL stats to these babies. They also don’t count towards the acquire Legendary Dweller quest. So this can be an alternative to getting dwellers with high attributes.
