Traders are dotted around the world where you can buy and sell items for Duke's Casino Tokens. Traders are open from 06:05 - 21:50. What items are available vary, and traders restock after a set interval, which can be seen in the upper bar of the interface while talking to the respective trader. On the Navezgane map, locations are listed as "Traitor Joel's". The structure and area around it are indestructible, neither the player or the zombies can break in. It is however possible to loot all the base's containers and pick up some of the trading post's furniture such as bedrolls. This may prove useful for players in the early game, as the tutorial quest involves travelling to the nearest trader and the encased houses pose a relatively safe place to loot due to their indestructibility. Finding other traders after the first can be done by locating the White River Citizen -flags inside traders' walls. However, some other POIs (such as a firestation) can have similar flags.
The post can't be used as the base as the player can't place or destroy any blocks and is constantly thrown out during night.
Traders have their normal offers and a "Secret Stash". To view items offered from their secret stash, you must view the Secret Stash tab by clicking the Safe icon in list of offered items - they are NOT shown in the "All" category.
Currently this is the only location where Player Rentable Vending Machines can be found and rented.
Locations in Random World Generation
Traders spawn randomly around the world.
Fetch jobs involve going to a specified building and searching for a hidden Courier Satchel, inside you will find White River Supplies. Once you have obtained the White River Supplies you can return to the trader and complete the job.
Clear Zombie job involves going to a specified building and eliminating all the zombies in the area. Once all the zombies have been eliminated you can return to the trader to complete the job.
Buried Supplies job involves going to a specified area that is indicated by a yellow circle and digging until you find the Buried Supplies. Inside is White River Supplies and some other items, only the White River Supplies is needed to finish the job. Once you have the Supplies you can return to the trader to complete the job.
After a certain amount of jobs completed the trader will reward the player with 2000 dukes and the player will get to pick some loot as if they had just finished a job, this allows the player to accept the Open Trade Routes jobs. Open Trade Routes job involves going to another trader. After you arrive at the new Trader there is no need to return to the old one to complete the job. After completion of this job the player will have unlocked the next tier of quests.
Fetch and Clear jobs are the combination of both the Fetch and Clear quests. Once you have cleared the area of zombies and found the White River Supplies you can return to the trader to complete the job.
*The higher the tier of the job the more challenging it will be to complete, ex tier 5 Fetch/Clear jobs will be in a bigger building with harder enemies in larger quantities.
Job rewards scale with tier, with T4 and T5 job rewards being far better than T1 and T2 quest rewards.
Additionally, every 7th quest completed wil be awarded with additional rewards and advancement to the next tier of quests.
Traders can also give Bundles as rewards which can contain multiple valuable items.
Traders specialize in selling specific types of items, usually offering a greater variety of items in their specialty (in addition to other supplies):
- Trader Joel: Armor
- Trader Jen: Medical supplies
- Trader Bob: Tools and vehicles
- Trader Rekt: Food and seeds
- Trader Hugh: Weapons and ammo
- Better Barter affects the cost or sale price of an item, and eventually upgrades the traders' "Secret Stash" with higher quality and rarer items.
- The Daring Adventurer improves the rewards from job completions, with the last tier allowing the player to choose two rewards.
