Scavengers are wastelanders searching for goods in Appalachia in 2103.


Scavengers wander Appalachia in search of items to scavenge and later sell, many attracted to the region by rumors of treasure and fortune to be gained. They can be found undertaking various activities, such as mining, chopping wood, digging for buried treasure and even panning for gold. A few scavengers, known as scavenger traders, are open to trade.

One large group of scavengers, led by Marion Copeland, cleared out the Emmett Mountain disposal site of its former inhabitants in order to mine the irradiated ore found in the site's depths. They can be found guarding and wandering around the site, all dressed in Emmett Mountain hazmat suits.

A variety of random encounters can be found involving scavengers, including one with a scavenger looking for bobby pins, as well as a group of two scavengers looking for a place to stay; the player character can convince them to settle in either the Crater or Foundation, and will gain reputation based on which settlement the scavengers are recruited to.

Another random encounter involves a scavenger searching for gold. If the player character tells the scavenger that they are searching for treasure, the scavenger will give them a random treasure map, commenting that they could not decipher it.

There is also a random encounter with a drunken scavenger asking for alcohol. He will take beer, whiskey, and rum, and may mention the Wayward in dialogue. Similarly, another scavenger who is addicted to Calmex will ask for a hit.

One may also encounter a scavenger chef who, in dialogue, will praise the merits of good cooking and offer the player character a random "gourmet" recipe. Another random encounter focuses on a scavenger with a rusted protectron, asking for help in repairing him, as the robot is the scavenger's best friend.
