Scrappers?

Hobos, druggies, labs, etc. have all been covered, but what risk do scrappers pose? I saw some evidence of scrappers inside the last place I went to, so how should they be approached?

Like everyone else, with respect. They aren't scrapping body parts.

I'd just avoid them altogether. The one time I did come across a scrapper, he was making a ton of noise.

Before a big explore I like to work with leather. The Native Americans always said that working with hides and pelts releases the soul.

That's what we heard last time. It sounded like someone was stomping on the floor above. We came back four days later and found a drinking fountain had been removed from the wall and found a backpack full of metal.

Ask them where some other abandoned buildings are.

The question is not when are we gonna stop, It's who's gonna stop us?

Pretty sure scrappers have been covered.

If I was a scrapper and I saw that post, then I would say "hilite"...

Explain to them that you won't report them if they share 1/2 the profits, and ask them to carry your camera gear around while you take photos.

"Why sure little lady", they say as they walk off to pawn your camera.

Most scrappers will be far less inclined on getting caught then the average druggy who doesn't care. I would stay away from them if you can they are risking a lot for marginal rewards.

My run in's with scrappers usually just amount to a wave or a simple exchange of "yo"'s.

However I once got a building tour from a hobo scrapper who was living in an abandoned mill that was actually oddly informative about the mills operations. I have given and bummed smokes to a scrapper, one guy even gave me a lighter to keep when I asked for a light. Once a scrapper told me the entrance to a building that otherwise people thought was sealed.

I have also heard of some very aggressive scrappers threatening to kill people. They are people, some are nice, some are mean.

From what I've heard, it is a good idea to always carry around a few extra cigs as a token to any scrappers, homeless, etc. that you might run into. They will appreciate a nice gesture. Treat them with respect and if you sense any hostility, then just say you are passing through or leave them be.

We had some squatters in a building we hit, we just eased back out of the building and let them be since it was late at night.

I don't consider scrappers as "equals".

If there's water nearby, you can always deep-six their tools/cars/loot when they are not looking.
