In fallout shelter, can you get legendary dwellers from radio room after the update which added quests?

I heard that with the new update that added quests you also can now get legendary dwellers from the radio room. Can anyone confirm this?


Sorry to say, but no.

In this developer blog the same question was asked and the answer states that legendary dwellers can only be obtained through lunch boxes.

    • Matt Grandstaff said on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 8:11 pm: Legendary Dwellers are in Lunchboxes only

Also, as for 2016-09-07, the Fallout Wiki-s entry on legendary Fallout Shelter characters states that:

Rare dwellers are found in lunchboxes.

  • By the way, gaming.stackexchange.com/a/227898/126370 states that you can. Strange. – Ivan Kolmychek Sep 7 '16 at 8:29
  • Well Preston Garvey is a legendary dweller and can be obtained via quest, not lunchbox. – OrangeDog Sep 7 '16 at 10:22
  • @OrangeDog if you have more relevant info you can edit the answer and add it there. :) – Ivan Kolmychek Sep 7 '16 at 10:34

    It demonstrates that the evidence presented is incorrect. – OrangeDog Sep 7 '16 at 12:45

    @IvanKolmychek that answer holds no actual evidence, proof, or sources. Maybe since an update this is now possible but it is also likely that they could have opened a lunch box without thinking about it, found the dweller and concluded they were attracted by the radio station. – Micoxion Sep 7 '16 at 14:06
