Scavengers are wandering traders found in the Capital Wasteland. They carry a varied assortment of items (usually junk) that they are willing to sell to you. Scavengers will sometimes comment on your characters actions in quests, depending on their outcome. They can also be found in small bases witch usualy have some quite good loot but it will count as stealing even if the Scavenger is wandering around or dead.
