Vehicles give their users the ability to move much faster on the worldmap. They have to be refueled and repaired from time to time. Depending on your charisma and the vehicle's available number of slots, you can take your friends with you for a drive. A vehicle with three slots will be able to carry the driver and two passengers.


Important Notes

  • Outdoorsman is not applied while in a vehicle, and the driver automatically notices 95% of random encounters.
  • Vehicles have a different spawn point than normal humans, and this can be useful in a well-organized attack.
  • Vehicles behave differently in Turn-Based and Real-Time combat.
  • Using the Science skill on a vehicle will enable you to check the deterioration, key number, and fuel supply of a vehicle without having to take it to the world map.
  • A vehicle can be lock-picked, after which the key is no longer needed to drive it. There is no way to undo this once it is done.

Getting a Vehicle

There are three options when it comes to purchasing a vehicle in the game. T-Ray in New Reno sells a variety of vehicles. The only vehicle he does not sell, the Cockroach, is sold by the resident of the Junkyard. Your last option for purchasing a vehicle is to trade with another player. The other method is to simply take one, or get lucky enough to find a Special Encounter with one of the Ultra Rare vehicles.

T-Ray in New Reno

T-Ray, the car salesman in New Reno.

You can buy vehicles from T-Ray in New Reno (Gas Station area, at the north-east). Just talk to him with caps in your inventory and you'll be able to buy a vehicle. The vehicle will spawn right after that near you, in T-Ray's garage, and you'll have a key in your inventory. Each vehicle key has a unique key number that matches its vehicle. vehicles have dynamic prices, like mercs: the more vehicles are bought, the more they cost.

Resident in Junkyard

The only other place to get a vehicle from a NPC Merchant is in Junkyard. In the garage you will find a single Merchant that you can talk to. He will tell you that he can fix up a vehicle for you, but he needs a part. He will tell you to come back with a Fuel Cell Controller. After you complete that task and have the caps to pay him, you will be able to buy a new Cockroach from him. It will spawn outside the garage and you will have the key in your inventory.

Special and Random Encounters

From time to time you will encounter other players with vehicles or ones lost by their owners. In the more uncommon Special Encounters, you will sometimes find an exceptionally rare vehicle. In either case, the vehicle may need to be lock-picked, the key must be stolen, or simply taken by brute force.

Using a Vehicle

With the vehicle's key in your inventory, just click on the vehicle to move on the worldmap with it. Players that have tagged you will have an option to follow you, if they are close enough. You can't go to worldmap in a vehicle without fuel. Lockipick works also, see Important Notes above.

Vehicle Maintenance

If your vehicle runs out of fuel it will stop on the world map. To refuel a vehicle, click on it to use the inventory (bag) icon and then select Small Energy Cells or Micro Fusion Cells in your inventory. Alternately, you can refuel a vehicle with Rot Gut if the vehicle has the Rot Gut Engine Upgrade. You will also have to repair it from time to time (Using the Repair skill) with a Tool or Super Tool Kit in your hand.

New Keys

T-Ray will make a copy of your vehicle key, for caps. Just talk to him and select the right option when holding a key in hand. If someone else gets your vehicle key, they can drive your vehicle if they find it wherever you parked it. Some players prefer keyless vehicles for convenience. A vehicle's key also opens the vehicle's trunk.


To sell your car, you need to visit someone who will be interested in this. Talk with T-Ray or any caravan dealer when holding key to car in hand. Keep in mind that car must be on same map, as car dealer.
