Storage Room: Why Assign A Dweller?

what does assigning a dweller to the storage room do

Assigning a dweller to a storage room in Fallout Shelter does not appear to have any significant impact on the room's function or the dweller's stats. However, it can boost the happiness of dwellers with endurance as one of their top stats to 75%. Additionally, dwellers in storage rooms can help contain incidents like fires, radroaches, and mole rat attacks, providing some protection to items stored there. Some players also use storage rooms to temporarily stash dwellers or as a loading dock for shuffling dwellers around. Overall, the consensus is that it is better to assign dwellers to rooms where they can utilise their skills and make a more meaningful difference.

Dwellers with high endurance become happy when stationed in the storage room

In the game Fallout Shelter, dwellers with high endurance become happy when stationed in the storage room. This is because the storage room is marked as an endurance room.

While the storage room does not produce anything, and dwellers do not gain experience from being in the storage room, there are several benefits to placing dwellers with high endurance in the storage room. Firstly, it raises their happiness, improving your average happiness rating and earning you more caps from your daily reviews. Secondly, it is useful for improving the happiness of dwellers on coffee breaks. Thirdly, it is needed for the "Place # dwellers in the right room" objective. Finally, dwellers in the storage room can help contain incidents in that room, such as fires, radroaches, and molerats, while you move other dwellers to solve the incident.

Storage rooms do not need to be manned

Storage rooms in Fallout Shelter are used to increase your storage capacity for resources, junk, outfits, pets, and weapons that are not currently in use. Despite being marked as an endurance room, having a dweller with high endurance assigned to this room does not appear to have any effect on the room's function. However, it does make that dweller happy, though they will not gain levels while assigned to the storage room.

The only benefit to assigning a dweller to a storage room is that it can boost their happiness to 75% if endurance is one of their top stats. It is also useful if you want to stash them somewhere temporarily or if you want to protect them from fire or radroaches. However, these incidents will eventually disappear on their own, and they will move to other rooms. If the empty room is right next to an occupied room, there will be enough time to move dwellers into the empty room if an incident occurs.

If you are concerned about mole rat attacks in an empty room, you can build something below your storage room that has dwellers in it. Alternatively, you can make sure that any room that you don't intend to have dwellers in is not adjacent to any other populated room. This way, if a fire or mole rat infestation happens, it will spread to other unoccupied rooms but then go out on its own without affecting the rest of your vault.

Dwellers in storage rooms do not gain experience

Dwellers gain HP each time they level, and the amount of HP gained depends on the endurance they have at the moment they level. Once they have levelled, there is no going back, so you might want your dwellers to stay at level 1 until you have trained them to full endurance.

Dwellers in a warehouse can contain incidents in that warehouse. For this reason, it is worthwhile to have at least one dweller in every warehouse. The single dweller will contain the strength of the incident while you move other dwellers there to fully solve the incident.

The alternative is to place your warehouses deep down at the bottom of your vault and stagger them so that incidents can't spread.

Storage rooms are useful for temporarily 'stashing' dwellers

Storage rooms in Fallout Shelter are useful for temporarily stashing dwellers. While the storage rooms do not produce anything, they can be used to increase the happiness of dwellers with high endurance, which in turn improves your average happiness rating and earns you more caps from your daily reviews. Additionally, placing dwellers in storage rooms can be useful for completing the “Place # dwellers in the right room” objective.

Storage rooms can also be used to protect dwellers from fire, radroaches, and other incidents. By placing dwellers in storage rooms, you can prevent them from being affected by incidents that occur in other rooms. This can be especially useful if you need to temporarily stash dwellers somewhere safe while you deal with an incident in another room.

It is worth noting that dwellers in storage rooms do not gain experience or levels. They also do not gain additional resources from being in the storage room. As such, it is generally recommended to focus on placing dwellers in rooms that utilise their skills and can boost productivity or resource generation.

Dwellers in storage rooms can help contain incidents

To minimise the risk of incidents spreading, some players choose to build their vaults with unoccupied rooms, such as barracks and storage, in their own sections. That way, if a fire or molerat attack occurs, it will not spread to other parts of the vault.

Another strategy is to ensure that any room that is not intended to have dwellers is not adjacent to any other populated room. This way, if an incident occurs, it will spread to other unoccupied rooms but then go out on its own.

Additionally, incidents tend to start in unoccupied rooms, so having at least one dweller in the storage room can help deter them.
