Fallout Shelter’s Objectives Are Becoming Ridiculous

Kill two Deathclaws without a weapon. For fifty caps. Are you kidding me, Fallout Shelter?

The screenshot above comes from Redditor magicalmakx, and it’s so absurd, I initially thought it was just a Photoshop. But no. Other players report the same thing: the new Fallout Shelter has new objectives, one of which includes the ridiculous request above. You’d think killing Deathclaws unarmed would be worth at least a lunchbox or a Mr. Handy, but no. Fifty caps. For killing some of the hardest enemies in the game without a weapon!

Is this even possible to do? I’d like to think Bethesda wouldn’t put anything that’s impossible in there, but…has anyone actually done this? How? What kind of stats would you even need? Do you just dwindle down a Deathclaw’s health normally, and then unequip your weapon so the final blow is weaponless? Can anyone do this without cheesing it? Holy moly.

Given that I got wrecked like this last time I tried to take on Deathclaws…

…I think I might just “X” this Deathclaw objective, should it ever come up. Because screw that, man.


  • This is a pure guess here, but I get the feeling you’d need a high level character in Strength and Luck to pull it off.

    • Difficulty aside, you don’t decide what the character does, you’d have to send them out bare-handed and hope they don’t equip themselves with the first gun they find.

  • Yeah they seem crazy, also people you can play this on PC with VirtualBOX Gapps installs.

  • You wont be doing this until you have at least 3-5 layers of fully geared characters (ie 16 people per floor). Deathclaw’s don’t stay in each room that long but they manage to do quite a bit of damage. I have the quest for killing 3 of them bare handed but only managed 2 before they hit my 4th layer which had weapons :s Should be doable if you have Str and End gear on the first few floors and if you don’t think you can do it just use the daily X button to remove the quest for the day (supposedly only get to remove one quest per day). In other words it CAN be done just not within a few days of playing.
