State of Decay 2 Wiki

Wandering Traders are people traveling around, offering goods for sale. They appear randomly and most of them only stick around for a brief period of time. These traders can sell you all kinds of stuff, like Consumables, Crafting Items, weapons (both ranged and melee), Facility Mods, and even Rucksacks. They can be regular Wandering, Mysterious Wandering, or Rare Skills Traders.
