Every time a dweller levels up within the vault, you'll get as many caps as is the dwellers new level. What happens after the dweller has reached level 50? Do the caps keep coming in chunks of 50 or does this source of caps dry up?


You only get bonus caps for leveling up when the dwellers actually level up.

There are several other sources of caps (exploring the wasteland, selling gear, lunchboxes, bonus caps when rooms finish, etc) but once a dweller is level 50, you won't get any further level bonuses from them.

  • At this point I typically have my dweller exploring the wastes full time. – Richard Parnaby-King Sep 1 '15 at 14:47
  • I've found that levelling-up is a pretty poor source of caps anyway; dwellers don't level up often, and the amount of caps you get for it is not huge (equal to the dwellers level I guess). I get far more from the room-finish bonus, which happens quite often if the dwellers in that room have high luck, and can yield several hundred caps each time. – snogglethorpe May 10 '16 at 16:06

No, you won't get any more caps from a dweller after they reach level 50. Their level gauge will be always full from then on, so even if they are working on a room that just produced resources, their XP won't go up, thus they will never level up again and you won't get caps from that dweller anymore.
