Radscorpions are enemies in Fallout Shelter. They are physically seen in game during vault invasions and quests.


A radscorpion attack is the most dangerous encounter during incidents as it deals heavy damage (both physically and radiation) and can drain up to 50% of a vault's power if not dealt with quickly. They start appearing when a vault's population reaches 50 dwellers in normal (35 in survival) mode. Also, unlike the radroaches and mole rats, the radscorpion will jump from room to room very frequently, which makes it very difficult to deal with.

Radscorpions can also be encountered during quests. However, unlike the ones that attack the vault, they deal no radiation damage except for glowing "boss" radscorpions. Not only does it constantly deal radiation damage to the dwellers, but it also has a special attack which involves pouncing on a dweller, inflicting massive damage. This attack has the potential to kill a dweller in a single strike.


Radscorpions are encountered during quests, out in the wasteland and as invaders in your vault in Fallout Shelter.
