Last Shelter: Survival Guide

Last Updated:

The latest update for Last Shelter introduced 'Exploring' as an option in the game. This sounds like an interesting update but what exactly can you do.

The idea of exploring is to make use of your construction vehicles, the 4 that you get as you upgrade and any more that you have decided to pay for. (this does not affect the world APCS that you use for combat / gathering)

Unless you are actively upgrading buildings then these construction vehicles are idle most of the time and this update is a way to make them feel useful.

Exploring can only be done though once you reach base level 12.

How to Explore

To start exploring tap on the construction vehicle icon in your city view. This is the tools icon in the top left when you are in your city view. In the vehicle pop up any idle vehicles will now have an 'Explore' button next to them.

What is exploring and what do you get

Tap the Explore button and you can choose to send them out for 4, 6, 8 or 12 hours. Once you do this the vehicle will travel out to a location in the wastelands around your city and start collecting items. You can recall a vehicle at any time but this will cost you diamonds. So bear in mind when you might need them again.

What do you get

The explore process will return standard resources like food and fuel as well as a chance to get Energy fragments and Energy cores. There are also some new items that will be added to your inventory which at the moment you can then sell for money. Once your vehicle has returned check your item menu for these new items to see what you have collected and sell them. There is no other use at present.

The items that you get and their value are as follows:

Paintings: 1000 Money

Fossils: 500 Money

Cloth: 20 Money

Bombs: 20 Money

Tire: 10 Money

UPDATE: you can now also get:

Exquisite Gems: 2000 Money

Changing the driver

There is also the option to change the driver character of the vehicle which can affect the items it comes back with. If you tap on the driver image on the left you will see the buffs that it has with details of extra wards or improves chances of returning items.

There will be an option to change the driver which will cost you either in came money or 1 'transformation ticket' which is a new reward item in the game. Changing the driver is a random process so with each change you can only hope to get something better, yo may need to change it several times to get one that you like.

In general the buffs won't greatly affect what you get out of each exploration. But if you are looking to maximise your return of a specific resource (for example if you need iron) then changing the drivers for one that does this will help you out in the long run.

Is it worth doing

The money you get back from the collecting is not going to make you rich, but you will always need the money in the game and any extra that you can collect will help. The resources you get are also very useful. So whenever you can spare your vehicles (if you are not upgrading buildings) then it will pay you to send them out.

Advanced Exploration

These is an additional option for Advanced Exploration available when you send your vehicles to explore. This option is a VIP privilege which you need to unlock via the VIP shop. This mean a large purchase. If you do unlock it then you will be able to gain diamonds and more items from exploring.
