These vehicles are the kings of the Badlands, used by Nomad Clades to scavenge their way across the deserts and plains – picking up salvage and valuable scrap as they go. Really just a massive, strong grabber claw on a wheeled all-terrain chassis, with living quarters bolted on, they each hold up to 21 inhabitants – an entire extended family – and often travel in threes and fours with a whole Nomad Band on the move at once. each day, they use that huge grabber claw to knock down walls and lift rubble in search of something they can sell later, or pick up big bits of scrap metal and old machinery to transport to the cities on the edge of the badlands or sell at the nearest enclave.

A Scavenger is slow, but can drive without halt for up to nine hours overnight – 144 miles – then stop during the day and recharge its powercells for the next stage of its journey. Each has ample portable workshops and a small medical bay as well as living quarters, and a large vapor collector to provide water. The two hardpoints are usually occupied by smaller vehicles – armed buggies or ATV cycles – and the typical band will keep several of these which can act as scouts and outriders for the main group.
