Items are classified as objects that can be carried in the inventory or hands and are useful to the player in some manner.
Loot Item Types:
Loot are items which can be found throughout the game, spawned and dropped. There are approximately seven types of loot, all of which are found in different locations of the playable maps and in some rare cases may be dropped by zombies, depending on the type of zombie (grocer, police, fireman, etc.)
- Civilian items - This is the most common type of loot. It is found in civilian locations such as towns. Almost all food items fall into this category, as well as most clothing and some melee weapons. Civilian places are places like Montague, Charlottetown, Stratford, and Alberton.
- Military items - This category includes some of the best weapons such as Military-Grade Firearms, Military-Grade Magazines, Body Armor, and other Military Gear (like Military-Compatibility Attachments, Grips, or Tacticals). The Military Locations are places like Summerside Military Base, Scorpion-7, the Helicopter crash in Montague and Confederation Bridge.
- Medical items - Medical Supplies are extremely important, as they are the only way to heal your character as well as raising your immunity. There are different levels of effect and rarity for medical items. This type of item can be found in Pharmacies (like the one in Charlottetown), the Practitioner, the Hospital in Stratford, but also in Scorpion-7 Facility and the Submarine.
- Ranger (Militia) items - This type is different than the military item type. It includes ranger weapons like Snayperskya, Zubeknakov, Matamorez and Nykorev, which uses Ranger Ammunition Boxes. These weapons also require Ranger Attachments and have more durability than military items. Some Militia locations are mixed with Civilian locations (Radio Towers, Bunker in Holman Isle, the lighthouse in Cape Rock, the safe in the Bank in Alberton, and the O'leary Prison).
- Police items - This type of items can be found in Police Stations, Police Checkpoints or near the Police Vehicles. It includes Police Clothing and Police Vests. Also, Cobra Pistols, Cobra Magazines, Cobra Boxes, and Civilian-Grade Ammunition Boxes may spawn in these areas. Some Police Stations are located in Charlottetown, Stratford, and the Police Checkpoint somewhere between Montague, and Belfast Airport.
- Agricultural items - This includes most gathering tools (Axes). This type of item also includes fertilizers which can be found in rare cases on botanist structures (like the one in Alberton and Montague) with seeds. Agricultural places are Wiltshire, Fernwood and Wellington Farms, we may also include the Souris Campground.
- Construction items - Most construction items are used as crafting ingredients, but may contain tools (Axes and Saws).
