掠奪者想要什麼就拿什麼,想什麼時候拿就什麼時候拿,而他們最喜歡的消遣活動便是凌遲與謀殺Fallout 3 載入畫面

  掠奪者(英文名:Raiders),有時也被稱為強盜(英文名:bandits),是一群在廢土上以恣意掠奪、搶劫、謀殺,或以任何方式破壞並非他們一員美好一天而生的人們。掠奪者通常為鬆散的幫派,在廢土上是一個持續已久的問題。掠奪者通常以旅行者和小城鎮為主要獵物,對人口較多或較大的地區則不感興趣,儘管如此,如果數量足夠大,他們可能會對一個地區的安全構成重大威脅。

  掠奪者在廢土上幾乎隨處可見,大多數都是壽命較短且組織鬆散的幫派,聚在一起勉強湊合着過日子,通常除了刺激感與活下去外,沒有任何驅動他們繼續前進的動力;不過也有一些特例,比如可汗幫80s,持續時間較長,因而形成了部落聯系和基於掠奪的獨特文化。[1]

核心地帶

2160年代

  除了在新加州遇到的大量掠奪者幫派之外,《異塵餘生》中還提到了三個不同的掠奪者群體:豺狼幫 毒蛇幫以及可汗幫,但只有最後一個有實際出現在游戲中。而這三個團體都源於第15號避難所

  • 豺狼幫:是一幫最典型純粹的瘋子們。他們沒有任何道德觀,他們的人生只有一個目標:活着。他們通常使用群攻戰術來壓制敵人。不過他們在個性上只是群懦弱蹩腳的懦夫,除非他們確信自己能贏否則不會攻擊對方。他們在自己的據點集合起來,為戰利品而戰。
  • 毒蛇幫:第二個部族,毒蛇幫,是一個古老宗教的神秘追隨者(至少他們是這樣聲稱的)。它們通常只在夜間出來覓食或進行突襲。他們在戰鬥中冷酷無情,喜歡潛行勝過力量。它們通常攜帶蘸有蝮蛇毒液的骨刀,當毒液進入血液時,會使受害者癱瘓。大多數用這種方式捕獲的受害者都會被帶回他們的藏身之處。
  • 可汗幫: 最後一個部落,可汗幫,可能是三個掠奪者部落中最危險和足智多謀的。他們過着蒙古戰士般的生活方式,襲擊城鎮,燒毀他們不能帶走的東西,把倖存者抓來當奴隸。他們通常以小型偵察隊式活動,但有時他們也會以全面作戰部隊形式漫遊。可汗幫最尊敬力量。他們在戰鬥中熱衷於用拳頭或棍棒進行肉搏,以證明自己對部落的價值。可汗幫很少攜帶武器。任何表現出超凡力量的人都值得他們的尊敬。

2240年代

在《輻射2》中有許多不同的掠奪者群體,在廢土中仍然很常見,但只有少數群組扮演了重要角色。

  • 畢索普的僱傭兵:在破碎丘北部的一個洞穴里,有高架板,墜落陷阱和帶刺的鐵絲牆保護着,裏面有鎖住的門和陷阱門。他們並非真正的掠奪者,而是新里諾畢索普家族的僱傭兵,他們的武器是新加州共和國提供的。他們只是以掠奪者的身份向地下掩體都市施壓,讓其接受NCR的兼併。他們住在僱傭兵的洞穴里。
  • 新可汗幫:在遊戲第二作中再次出現,他們由原團體的唯一倖存者領導。他們躲在15號避難所廢墟的秘密走廊里,由擅自佔用者保護。他們的首領達里安是個偏執狂,對自己是唯一的倖存者感到愧疚,他是被放逐者剿滅的原可汗幫唯一倖存者。結果,他們對商隊和城鎮進行了多次襲擊,並在達里安的命令下,對NCR的襲擊尤其猛烈。
  • 極道: 在旅行中可能會遇到手持傳統劍的日式掠奪者幫派。

2281年

2281年,新加州共和國有效地清除了該地區的掠奪者。[2] 在東部,凱撒軍團以一種不同的方式做了同樣的事情,[3]但軍團的領地可以說比新加州掠奪者要少,這使得對一些商人來說更安全。[4]在這兩個派系之間,在莫哈韋廢土上,在技術上符合掠奪者定義的較小的幫派繼續存在,例如維加斯外圍地區的油脂族蠍子幫,而老幫派則採用新的身份或傳統的掠奪者路線繼續奮鬥,例如大汗幫惡魔幫

首都廢土

典型的首都廢土掠奪者

首都廢土的掠奪者大多是充滿敵意、無法無天、藥物成癮的惡棍,他們遊蕩在華盛頓特區的荒野上。除了莫哈韋廢土惡魔幫外,他們與西海岸的掠奪部落幾乎沒有共同之處。遭遇他們都是些較小的團隊,並配備有種類繁多的武器。 偶爾也會發現它們與護衛犬一起狩獵。 所有掠奪者都穿着某種形式的掠奪者裝甲(儘管在常春寨等地的掠奪者妓院中沒有)並且皮膚骯髒。首都廢土的掠奪者沒有核心領導人,都是個別幫派的頭目。然而,在匹茲堡阿什爾統領着整支掠奪者軍隊。

掠奪者與其他派系沒有聯盟,並且會攻擊除掠奪者和奴隸販子以外的所有人。他們看起來相當殘忍,因為他們居住的地方通常充滿了其他掠奪者和廢土居民的殘肢,這意味着他們折磨俘虜的敵人,偶爾被折磨是他們自己。

已知的最大掠奪者幫派已在常春寨建立了一個原始城市。 這個得天獨厚的峽谷成為他們作戰基地。 有傳言說,他們與奴隸進行貿易,將俘虜出售以換取現金。[1]

莫哈韋廢土

山脈提供了驚人數量的掩體,尤其是在尼爾森以南東西走向的佈滿了岩石。這是一群無法無天的獵人,騙子和精神病患者等待偷盜,綁架或殺害機會的絕佳地點。 這些組織鬆散的掠奪者幫派喜歡混亂和無政府狀態。豺狼幫不過是一小撮傷痕累累、滿身刺青的壞蛋,靠捕獵比他們更弱的來謀生。稍微更有組織的毒蛇幫是由一群更熟練的懶漢組成的,他們在主要道路附近挖洞搶劫旅者和商隊。再往北,有兩個更可憐的幫派,他們的兄弟(要麼是暴力,要麼是招募)被惡魔幫奪去了;在北維加斯下水道橫行霸道的油脂族幫,以及與西部居民時常發生衝突的蠍子幫。 還有另外兩個主要的掠奪者集團:惡魔幫和販毒的大汗幫。所有這些掠奪者都沒有什麼行動目的或目標,除了活到明天,在現在儘可能多地製造麻煩。[5]

聯邦

在聯邦,掠奪者的組織能力比以前更強。掠奪者現在技術更先進了,可以使用機關槍炮塔和自動聚光燈——一些掠奪者的首領甚至重新使用了動力裝甲。但是,聯邦的掠奪者沒有一個集中的組織,而是分成幾個團體。從終端和對話中可以看出,這些群體有的相互對抗,有的互不干涉。例如,Red Tourette的團隊經常與Tower Tom的團隊發生衝突。

這些掠奪者組織很少有固定的名字,大多數都是由他們的領導人來命名,除了一些例外,如打鐵幫和L&L幫,一些鬆散的掠奪者團伙。掠奪者似乎遵循一個不言而喻的指揮鏈,儘管不像槍手那樣有組織。

The Nuka-World raiders are a completely different story from the Commonwealth raider gangs, as they are far more organized and better equipped. This loose triumvirate consists of the Operators, a mob-style gang driven by monetary gain; the Disciples, a highly sadistic and bloodthirsty gang that revel in murdering and torturing victims for sport; and the Pack, which, as the name suggests, follow an animal pack-based system and have an affinity for brightly colored armor and clothes. All three gangs follow an overall leader or "overboss." The current overboss is Colter.

In Fallout 4, raiders can be heard conversing with each other, sometimes telling stories or joking with each other. The members also seem to have close bonds with one another as they often get enraged when some of their comrades are killed. Notes and terminals also show that raiders care more about each other (e.g. Intervention note) though they still possess the same bloodthirstiness that raiders have in Fallout 3.

Raiders, like many factions, do not treat synths and the Railroad favorably. Most notable is the L&L gang, who have a reputation to be violent towards synths. This is evidenced by the mass-graves of Railroad operatives in Kendall Hospital, an ex-Railroad safehouse now controlled by raiders.

Raiders earn protection money from Bunker Hill caravans and spend money in places like Combat Zone, a raider-only bar, showhouse and wrestling ring.

Variants

Appalachia

Prior to 2102, there were five major raider gangs in Appalachia. These gangs were descended primarily from those trapped in ski resorts in the Savage Divide region. The rich tourists and staff first waited for rescue from the government, but when they realized help would not arrive, they turned to raiding any nearby survivors for supplies.

Each of the gangs focused on different aspects of raiding to survive, but each group ultimately met their end. The Blackwater Bandits specialized in stealth and theft but either died or became ghouls when one of their members damaged some machinery in the uranium mine they resided in, releasing dangerous levels of radiation. The Gourmands turned to cannibalism, but this eventually proved to be their undoing - some members began to eat the others in the group, and these members became wendigos. The Trappers favored using traps to ensnare their victims but were assaulted by the super mutants who captured many and forced to others to flee the region. The Diehards were the most pacifist of the groups, preferring to avoid killing except in self-defense, however, this philosophy proved difficult in the wasteland and eventually drove their leader to suicide. Finally, the Cutthroats, who were known for their fierceness and willingness to go to extreme lengths to get revenge on those who opposed them, were wiped out primarily due to the Scorched Plague.

By 2103, three large raider gangs returned to Appalachia. Other smaller gangs are also seen, though only during certain quests.

One large raider gang is made up of former members of the original five gangs, and they are led by a former Diehard. Their main base is at the Crater but they do control some territory along the Ohio River. Either these raiders, or their rivals at Foundation, must be sided with to break into Vault 79.

Another large gang is the Free Radicals, who occupy an old lumber mill. Their members include the ex-cons and the former head guard of a prison in Maryland. They came to Appalachia looking for treasure, and can be either fought or sided with.

The final large gang is the Blood Eagles. They are led by a triumvirate of leaders - the Blood, the Eye, and the Claw, though they rarely live long[6] and can be replaced by another member of the gang, as long as they proved their loyalty and power. They are almost all addicted to a spiked version of Buffout, making them crazed so that they will attack anyone who is not part of the gang on sight. A former member, Beckett, is dedicated to eliminating the gang, and the Vault Dweller can assist him in doing so.

Two smaller gangs are seen in Appalachia - one, a group led by Edwin (and later his niece Ronny) who often fight with the Blood Eagles and two, a group led by Sargento who run a fighting arena in the Watoga Civic Center.

Although they do not operate in Appalachia, one unnamed group of raiders is mentioned during the Steel Dawn questline. Originating from west of the region, this traveling group of raiders stopped in Ohio before visiting the Crater, and they traded off Hellstorm missile launchers to the inhabitants of Crater.[7] The raiders also claimed to have acquired this equipment, as well as a power armor helmet in battle with the Brotherhood of Steel.[8] However, the amount of raiders that the Brotherhood First Expeditionary Force encountered on their way to Appalachia makes Knight Daniel Shin act as if he is unsure of whether or not they actually met this group of raiders.[9] In reality, these raiders were the group that attacked a settlement in the Midwest, when the Brotherhood attempted to defend the townspeople. The raiders killed nearly every settler, except for two (Marcia and Maximo Leone), and Knight Alan Connors fell in battle as well. They took Knight Connors' helmet as a trophy and escaped with the Hellstorm missile launchers.[10][11]

中西部

Mini-FOT Logo.png以下內容基於輻射戰略版,因而一些細節可能與正史相沖突。

There are many raider gangs throughout the territory of Chicago. The majority of these raiders are well organized, because of a need to become one faction: the presence of Brotherhood of Steel, super mutants and Calculator's robots. They are cruel, sadistic people who are usually found near the eastern part of the region, far from super mutants and robots. There are several notable groups present.

  • The Main Faction: The faction was formed after four major raider leaders of the region (Luke Daniels, Bo Duffy, Daisy-May Gomer, and Jesse Gomer) forged an alliance to become stronger in order to fight their overpowering enemies. Their main base where the leaders hold their meetings is Rock Falls. They were all annihilated there by the Brotherhood.
  • Gang of Devil's Graveyard: Powerful gang of raiders led by a man known as Gargantua. Their base is a place called Devil's Graveyard.
  • Gang of Macomb: A gang which was formed to assault strangers around Macomb, a town suffering because of famine. These raiders are looking for food and use roofs as cover.
  • Ghoul-haters: This group is actually an extremist party, dedicated to the extermination of ghouls. They took over Springfield because the mayor claimed that ghouls are equal to normal, smoothskin people.

德克薩斯州

FOBoSLogo.png以下內容基於輻射:鋼鐵兄弟會,因而不應完全作正史內容看待。

In Texas, only one known gang of raiders exists, but it is very large and powerful, being de facto rulers of the land. However, they have become but puppets to Attis, who use them to capture slaves for him. Their base is an old mill located in the town of Carbon, which is completely under their control aided by the Mayor who keeps them happy. The gang is unique because of its matriarchal rule, with female lieutenants and the main leader is known as Jane, Raider Matron. The gang wears a yellow emblem on their clothes to differentiate themselves from outsiders. Aside from normal weapons, the Carbon Raiders are well known for using killer dogs and special flamethrower weaponry. They have the ability to brew alcohol on radioactive subsistences. [12][13]

    Jas Wilkins: "Born and raised. Things back in California are better than they've ever been, according to my grandpa. The Raiders are mostly gone now and it's easy enough to get a job at one of the mills or farms. But now there's taxes and laws and other things. The NCR keeps things safe and orderly, but it's all very boring. So, I came out east towards the frontier."

    Raul Tejada: "I don't really have a problem with them. People around here tend to see them as invading marauders planning to burn and pillage the countryside. But I've been to Arizona, boss. Before the Legion, it was a nasty place, so thick with raiders you couldn't trade with a town two miles up the road. Caesar's laws aren't nice, and their actions aren't always pretty. But then, neither am I, but you keep me around."

    The Joshua Tree-speckled mountains provide a surprising amount of cover, especially the rock-strewn washes that run east-west just south of Nelson. This is the perfect location for packs of anarchic hunters, grifters, and psychotics to wait for an opportunity to steal, kidnap, or kill. These loosely-knit Raider gangs revel in chaos and anarchy. The Jackals are no more than a handful of scarred and tattooed reprobates, scraping out a living by praying on anything weaker than them. The (slightly) more moreIn-game spelling organized Viper Gang consists of a slightly more skilled collection of ne'er-do-wells, dug in close to major roads to rob and plunder travellersIn-game spelling and Merchant Caravans. Further north, are two much more pitiful gangs, who have lost their brethren (both in violence, or by recruitment) to the Fiends; the stinking Greaser Gang who terrorize the North Vegas Sewers, and the Scorpion Gang, who fight intermittent skirmishes with Westside residents. All these Raiders have no driving purpose or goal, other than to live to see tomorrow and raise as much hell as possible today."

We equipped them with the weapons we found, but it didn't help. It was a massacre. The whole place was wiped out. Everyone was killed, including Knight Connors, one of our own. The only survivors were two children we brought back with us, Marcia and Max. Knight Shin believes it's our duty to report this incident to Elder Maxson. Paladin Rahmani feels we'd be punished just for trying to help."

  12. Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Manual p.33: "Raiders
    Mercenaries, thugs, guns-for-hire, the Raiders are just everyday folk that took a look at the world around them and thought that it could do with some additional hardship. Thanks guys. As their name suggests, Raiders move across the wasteland till they find a nice little remnant of civilization and then move in and strip the town of anything that isn’t bolted down. And then un-bolt the stuff that is. Since most raiders rank just below a fried egg on the intelligence scale, they tend to act as muscle for someone else, usually someone with bad things on their mind."
  13. Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Official Strategy Guide p.87: "Raiders
    Raiders are average men, unscathed by the fallout. At least, on the outside. Beneath their skin, in their chests, is a gaping hole where their hearts should be. Instead of banding together to help out fellow survivors, they decided to take advantage of their strength and numbers. They coalesced into vicious gangs called Raiders–an apt name because when they breeze into town, they rob, pillage, and loot. They take until there's nothing left. And then they move on, searching for the next unsuspecting town to burn to the ground.
    Fortunately, Raiders are all muscle. They attack without thinking it through, which leaves them vulnerable to a foe with a modicum of gray matter. When a mob surrounds you, try luring one or two around a corner to thin their numbers."
    "Raider Thug
    The lowest of the low. These mindless goons serve only to attack Brotherhood characters, and that means you. Fortunately, they haven't been equipped with very good weapons (usually just knives and small firearms) and they wear very little armor."
    "Raider Torch
    These Raiders love playing with fire. They sweep into a town with gas tanks strapped to their backs, and start burning everything in sight. Those tanks, though, are their weakness. They explode if you shoot them, and the resulting conflagration will wipe them out. (This is especially useful if they attack in a horde. Once one gas tank blows, they all start popping like fiery pinatas.) If you're out of bullets when you meet one of these charming fellows, be careful when throwing your melee weapon around. Only hit the Torch in the front, or else you'll go up with the gas tank."
    "Raider Soldier
    Soldiers are the next step up from Thugs in the Raider food chain. Soldiers are a little smarter, a little faster, and they've been entrusted with slightly better firepower. Some of these Raiders carry hammers, which gives them an increased melee range–so keep your distance."
    "Raider Lieutenant
    The highest members of the Raiders, Lieutenants are all females. They only carry firearms, like pistols and rifles, and are crack shots. Watch for their grenade attacks, too. Lieutenants are smart enough to track your movement and lob a grenade directly in your path."
