Take a look. Welcome to ... Godforsaken Hellhole! Not much to look at, but it's all mine. Ha ha ha!

Scavengers are generic traders in the Capital Wasteland in 2277.

BackgroundEdit

Scavengers may appear at pre-set scavenger locations or as random encounters. Some scavengers will be accompanied by a pack brahmin, non-hostile guard dogs, non-hostile yao guai, or even robots. If asked about their merchandise (after Megaton is blown up) they will say people in Megaton no longer need things. Their comments can also reflect other PC actions such as helping Big Town residents.

Scavengers that appear from random encounters may be programmed to guard an object or travel the wasteland. The object may be a vehicle, dead robot or a burning barrel. Their movement may simply be set to patrol the local vicinity, or travel across the map. In the cases of guarding vehicles and robots, they may react with hostility when approached, though they may still barter if dialogue is able to be started. Once traveling scavengers reach the location around their target, they remain there indefinitely.

Scavengers always wear a roving trader outfit with some type of wasteland headwear. If worn, Eye-wear is typically in the form of either biker goggles or sunglasses. They are equipped with random low-to-mid level weapons. After the 1.2 patch, it seems scavengers have access to the weapons in their store inventory, causing them to often end up wielding high-powered weaponry such as missile launchers or flamers.

Additionally, scavengers have noticeably higher than average health and combat skills than other human combatants, being marginally superior to Brotherhood of Steel paladins in terms of health and skill. Plus, as mentioned before, their combat skill is supplemented somewhat by using whatever weapon they have in their inventory that is the most powerful. However, their lack of proper armor leaves them vulnerable to most hostile Wasteland inhabitants.

Broken SteelEdit

In Broken Steel, scavengers can be seen leading the aqua pura Caravans carrying Aqua Pura throughout the Capital Wasteland. Each aqua pura caravan is led by a generic scavenger merchant, along with an aqua pura brahmin and 2 bodyguards (consisting of either Rivet City security or Brotherhood of Steel).

LocationsEdit

Scavengers can be found throughout the Capital Wasteland in various fixed locations where they have set-up shop. These do not include random encounter locations where scavengers may appear.

NotesEdit

  • Several random encounters include scavengers. These encounters may be stationary or mobile, and the scavenger involved may not always provide merchants services. See the random encounter subsecton: Scavengers and Wastelanders for details.
  • Fixed location Scavengers that are not part of random encounters do not respawn if killed.
  • The amount of money that is in a scavengers inventory during bartering will be on their person after being killed. This means that no matter how much money you pay for your wares, you can get 100% of your caps back.

AppearancesEdit

Scavengers appear only in Fallout 3.
