Bartering refers to the game mechanic related to buying and selling items and resources to Traders.
Players will buy and sell items and resources to the Trader based on the base price of the item and the player's skill level in Better Barter (Perk). Certain items, such as the Cigar, will provide additional bonuses to the player's Bartering skill, thus making it possible to get better deals when trading with the Trader.
|Item Type||Base Sell Price||Base Buy Price|
|Items that do not have Quality||20% of base price||200% of base price|
|Items with Quality level 1||8.0% of base price||80% of base price|
|Items with Quality level 2||38.4% of base price||384% of base price|
|Items with Quality level 3||68.8% of base price||688% of base price|
|Items with Quality level 4||99.2% of base price||992% of base price|
|Items with Quality level 5||129.6% of base price||1296% of base price|
|Items with Quality level 6||160% of base price||1600% of base price|
Buying at Vending Machines
Vending Machines can be found in the various Trader POI's as well as various other POI throughout the world. You can only buy items at Vending Machines; you cannot sell items. The prices at a Vending Machine were (in alpha 18) also influenced by the player's Bartering skill however this is no-longer true.
All items at a Vending Machine will have a base buy price of 100% of the base price of the item, which is half the cost if purchased from the Trader.
