The Overseer is sure to send us to the Spelun-King competition now!

Spelun-King Training is a daily overseer quest in Fallout Shelter.


This quest takes place in a cave, with a random layout. Enemies encountered may include, but are not limited to, radscorpions, radroaches, glowing radroaches, mole rats, feral ghouls, and deathclaws.

After reaching the other Spelun-King competitors, the first dialogue option ends the conversation peacefully and the second dialogue option starts a fight. The room the competitors are in contains a +5 rare outfit, same as what the spelunkers are wearing, which is determined by the stat requirements of the quest, for example, dwellers with high Luck and Agility will have a sturdy wasteland outfit in the room. The room in which the "Explore the Cave" objective is completed contains three Nuka-Cola Quantum, and a legendary junk or a shovel depending on what the stat requirements for the quest are. For example, Lucky and Agile dwellers will have a yao guai hide in the room.

Strong and perceptive Dwellers
Look, simpletons in their natural habitat!

Do you even know the difference between a stalactite and a stalagmite?
We'll be Spelun-Kings, so you might as well concede now. That means “give up.”

Caves are damp and pointy rocks are pointy. We know enough to win. Yeah, sure you do. When this is over, you'll recognize your betters!
Stalag-*this*, eggheads! That means, “Let's fight.” Simple minds are always so quick to violence...
Charming and perceptive Dwellers
We thought you were a herd of brahmin. A slow, noisy herd of brahmin.

Swift and silent, we'll become Spelun-Kings without a scratch.
Handypeople, vanish!

We can still see you... Okay, who forgot the Stealth Boys?
We'll just have to scratch you wannabe ninjas here and now. Defend the clan!
Tough and lucky Dwellers
Dwellers can’t beat a team of former Overseers.

We know how you think. We can see your every move. We control you!
Now take your proper places and bring us the Spelun-King crown!

Nice try, but an Overseer already controls our every move. So we're being watched right now? Interesting...
Our Overseer wants us to kill you. Fight to the death? How predictable.
Tough and smart Dwellers
The Spelun-King battlefied requires tact and charm against your opponents.

Which you seem to have in abundance.
There's no hope for us. You're bound to be the next Spelun-Kings.

Thanks! Such good sportsmanship is rare. You just deserve to win, and we'll watch your back until you do.
I see what you did there. It's time to shut you up. Are you sure we can't just talk this over?
Charming and agile Dwellers
Puny weaklings! Have you seen our muscles?

Look at these pecs, tris and glutes! Aren't they glorious? You can't compete with that.
Spelun-King victory is already ours. Because muscles.

It'll take much more than brute strength to win! Ha! I think you need a longer look at our amazing muscles.
Your muscles can't be allowed to make it to the competition. Ha! Have you seen our swords?
Strong and smart Dwellers
With us in the game, the deck is stacked against you!

You're starting behind the eight ball against pocket aces.
We'll be Spelun-Kings. You can bet on it.

No dice! The Vault always wins. Then let the chips fall where they may!
Not if we stop you and your unbearable expressions right now. All bets are off! Get them!
Lucky and agile Dwellers
(Speaks in a muffled, unintelligible voice.)

(Continues to speak. Sounds arrogant.)
(Doesn't seem to realize he can't be understood through the mask.)

Uh... Okay. Whatever you say. (Sounds satisfied.)
No one insults us and lives! (Sounds confused.)

Behind the scenes

This quest's name is a reference to the activity of spelunking in which people go into caves with very little to no light for a fun pastime.
