Fallout 76: Where to Find the Purveyor and Get Scrip (2020)

Where to Find the Purveyor in Fallout 76 (2020)

While the Purveyor used to be at Berkeley Springs Station, a recent update moved her permanently to the Rusty Pick, a small bar to the South of Charleston that we've marked on the map below. There aren't many enemies in the area and those that are shouldn't be too hard to handle, but the unique and valuable items that she sells means that you're very likely to encounter other players in the area, all wanting to trade with her too. She won't be hard to find once you're in the Rusty Pick; it's a very small building and the shopfront is lit up like a Christmas tree.

How to Get and Use Legendary Scrip

The Purveyor sells random legendary weapons and armor, a full list of which we've got here, but won't accept caps or even Atoms for them. Instead she has her own unique currency called Scrip, which you can get by breaking down legendary equipment, as well as an occasional reward for daily quests. You'll also need to use special "Legendary Exchange Machines" to break down legendary gear properly, destroying the gear inside it for a reward. There's one such machine at the Rusty Pick itself, but there's also one on the platform of every single train station in Fallout 76, making them pretty easy to find.

Purveyor Legendary Prices and Stock

The Purveyor herself is something of a lottery, selling only crates with some random weapon or clothing inside, the price of which adjusts according to quality. The better and more popular the item, the more expensive it is, maxing out at 100 Scrip for a three-star ranged weapon. Whether you consider these prices good is kind of relative - there's nothing else to spend Scrip on in the game, so you might as well spend it here.
