Every Vaultlanders in the Ending
You can get 4 Vaultlanders when completing the story campaign. There are a bunch of false guides on the internet that don’t have this info correct. Because I have seen other guides that mention you need to get at least 50% in a relationship metric, however, if that was the case I would have received them all at once and that wasn’t the case.
During the final chapter of your playthrough, you need to reject the shard. This ending gave me the Lilith Vaultlander.
During the final chapter of your playthrough, you need to merge with the shard. This ending gave me the Fiona Vaultlander.
Trigger Unknown because the 50% Frogurt ‘n Tacos score that other sites mentioned didn’t work for me.
You need to get a Skateboard Score of at least 75% when completing the story in order to get the Zer0 Vaultlander.
