Traveling merchants are vendors wandering Appalachia buying and selling goods.


Traveling merchants wander Appalachia in search of items to buy and sell. They may be randomly encountered at one's C.A.M.P., where they can be interacted and bartered with. If an Ally is residing at the C.A.M.P., the traveling merchant will mention that they were talking to them before the player character's arrival.

  • Three traveling merchants are found dead in the Deathclaw vs Merchant Caravan random encounter, alongside a dead pack brahmin and the deathclaw that killed them.
