A duet of singing Raiders has been spreading terror in the Wasteland using high production value musical numbers. We need to ring down the curtain on these musical thugs!

Wasteland: The Musical is a single-stage overseer quest in Fallout Shelter.


There are only human enemies on this quest, some of which are avoidable. When you come across the Brotherhood of Steel members, you can choose the first option to avoid a fight. When you come across the doo-wop singers, you cannot avoid a fight. Defeating them will drop the doo-wop singer outfit and greaser outfit.

The Children of Atom members are also a guaranteed fight and will drop a kitchen knife upon defeat. The woman singing Giulio Cesare has a republic robe in the same room. The Institute Synths are an avoidable fight if you select the first option, and will yield an advanced Institute jumper. Lastly, the pair of raiders are also an avoidable fight if you select the first option, and will yield a sturdy raider armor either way.
