Where is The Mysterious Stranger in Fallout Shelter?

If a stranger turns up unannounced in your Vault you would want to know who it is, right? In Fallout Shelter a Mysterious Stranger will appear in any room accompanied by a similarly mysterious sound. He can turn up in any powered room including elevators and only stays for around 10 seconds before disappearing with another ominous chime.

When you hear the music, look around for a man in a long light brown coat, dark brown hat and brown pants. He could be dancing or waving as he waits to be found, and if he appears during a raid or infestation he won’t even bother to help fight off the enemies, which is pretty rude.

He will appear again in ten minutes so listen out for the sound and quickly scan all powered rooms in your Vault. He hides behind desks, in doorways at the back of resident spaces, and basically anywhere. If you find him tap on him to receive your reward. The faster you find him, the more Caps you will gain. Also, there is the occasional chance to double your Caps by watching an ad.
