Scavengers, as the name implies, are scavengers in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Scavengers are a minor faction appearing in Fallout 4 roaming the Commonwealth, looking for anything of value to salvage and sell. While they are not always openly hostile, they are much more territorial than their Capital Wasteland counterparts and will often engage in combat if approached too closely. Since they often turn hostile when approached, they generally cannot be spoken or traded with by the Sole Survivor. Occasionally they may appear next to broken robots as random encounters and are planning to scavenge them.

Scavengers appear to mostly travel in groups of about 3-4 and are most commonly armed with pipe guns. They are relatively weak opponents that can easily be taken down with almost any weapon, on par with raiders.

Encounter locationsEdit


Scavengers are drawn from a character pool that is similar, yet disctinct to settlers. The most notable difference between the two groups is their inventory.
