This page describes the SPECIAL implementation in Fallout Shelter.


Each SPECIAL attribute increases dweller efficiency in various rooms, during combat or when performing certain tasks. Although attributes can only be trained to a maximum of 10, they can still be increased to up to 17 through clothing bonuses. These additional points will not be visible on the dweller's SPECIAL bars but can be checked by tapping/clicking the bars, which brings up a more comprehensive menu that lists any and all bonuses.
