Explorers are Caesar's advance scouts. Typically equipped in light armor and carrying binoculars, they are the Legion's message runners and keen eyes across the Mojave.”— Loading screen
Legion explorers are tasked with surveying the lay of the land ahead of the primary Legion fighting force. They are also used as messengers for relaying communications between Legion outposts. Explorers are lightly armored and equipped, as their role in the Legion involves observation and speed rather than pure combat. Their Legion explorer armor provides only very modest protection, and they carry only a machete, a few throwing spears, and occasionally a hunting rifle or cowboy repeater.
Interactions with the player character
At Nelson, a Legion explorer is stationed at each of the four cardinal directions from the camp, and will confront the player if they approach, demanding to know what they are doing there. The player is given the option of either being escorted to Dead Sea, the local Legion commander, or resisting the explorer and turning the entire camp hostile.
Likewise, a handful of explorers can be found patrolling Cottonwood Cove, with one explorer stationed permanently at the entrance to the camp. The explorer will demand to know the player's business; the player can either pass a speech check claiming to be a trader, claim to be a friend of the Legion, or attack outright.
