To do this, follow these steps:

  • If you disable the Auto option under Settings> General> Date & Time, you can set it as desired. You should be aware that sometimes this can cause errors when you return to the actual time, so be sure that all rooms are ready to be collected before you restore the settings. Regardless, this is one of the most useful Fallout Shelter cheats and you can find more instruction in the video guide below on this post.

Super epic items (mobile versions only)

By carefully following the steps below, you can quickly get some epic loot, though this seems to only work around 1 out of every three times.

  1. Recruit a single dweller who has been well-trained and is well-equipped to deal with the wasteland. Let him sit for at least two hours.
  2. As soon as that time has passed, check your Wastelander’s log to note the time when your dweller last received a loot item (for example, 1:43).
  3. Send 3 to 5 random dwellers into the wasteland 1 to 3 minutes before his most recent loot acquisition (1:40 if you follow the example). They will only be out there for about ten minutes, so equipment, stims, and radiation do not need to be considered.
  4. Close the game as soon as you send them (and make sure it doesn’t run in the background).
  5. Open the game again after a few minutes. Check with your first dweller to see if he received an item.
  6. In that case, you’re set. The dwellers who you sent after him should now possess legendary items. Try again if they don’t.
