Earning Caps

• Completing Quests

We’ll start with the obvious – the easiest way to earn caps is by completing your in-game objectives.You can check your progress on them by opening your Pip-Boy and clicking on the ribbon icon.

• Exploring the Wasteland

Among the more lucrative tricks for getting caps is to send one of your vault dwellers into the wasteland. The higher his Luck SPECIAL is, the more likely he is to find some caps.

Keep in mind that your explorer needs to return to the vault in order to present you with his newfound treasure, so be sure to check up on him regularly and bring him back when his heath starts reaching low levels.

• Rushing Rooms

Rushing your production rooms is a decent way to get some extra caps and EXP as fast as possible. As far as tips go, this one is slightly risky – there is a good chance rushing will cause an accident. The amount of caps you earn is related to the risk percent – the bigger the risk, the more caps you get.

• Leveling up Dwellers

Whenever one of your vault dwellers levels up, you get awarded caps equivalent to their new level. This is one of the biggest reasons to check up on your citizens from time to time, as they won’t gain any further experience until you acknowledge they have indeed leveled up by tapping on them.

• Selling Stuff

As you gather more and more armor and weapons you don’t need, it’s usually a good idea to sell them for extra caps.

• Destroying your rooms

Destroying your rooms is a different story and usually an act of desperation, but sometimes you just really need the money. Keep in mind you won’t be able to get the full value of the room when you destroy it, but you do get a significant amount.
