Fallout Shelter How to heal Dwellers

Healing Dwellers is essential to keep your Vault population happy and productive in Fallout Shelter, so here’s everything you need to know about it.

Many incidents can pop up in your Vault or while you’re exploring the Wasteland of Fallout Shelter. From accidental fires to a Raider invasion, you’ll need to be prepared to heal your Dwellers every time they face these threats.

Here’s everything on how to heal Dwellers in Fallout Shelter.


Fallout Shelter: Do Dwellers heal over time?

In Fallout Shelter, Dwellers will heal over time if they are in the Vault with a steady Food and Water supply. If your shelter doesn’t have enough resources, their health will decrease, and they’ll start receiving radioactive poisoning.

You can easily heal your Dwellers in Fallout Shelter by using Stimpaks, waiting for them to heal over time, or leveling them up.

If you use a Stimpak, keep in mind that Dwellers affected by radioactivity will first need to use RadAway to remove the portion marked with read in their health bar, and then a Stimpak to regain full HP.

You can obtain Stimpaks for free through Lunchboxes, or you can produce them after building a Medbay and assigning Dwellers to it. This room is unlocked after reaching of population of 14 Dwellers.

You can’t heal Dwellers directly while they are exploring the Wasteland in Fallout Shelter. You may equip both RadAways and Stimpaks, but they will use them randomly.

However, you can manually heal your Dwellers during quests by waiting for their health to drop low enough until a green Stimpak logo hovers above their heads and clicking on it to heal them.

And that is everything you need to know about how to heal your Dwellers in Fallout Shelter. For more on Bethesda’s game, check out the rest of our content:
