Wasteland 3 is an absolutely massive RPG where your squad of desert rangers will spend 80-100 hours exploring every corner of post-apocalyptic Colorado. You should leave no door unopened or lock unpicked as you might find quests, vendors, and useful loot.
Scattered throughout the game are numerous unique items, including powerful armor, weapons, and utility items. Here's a guide to everything you should look out for and where to find it. Note that some of these items require picking locks, restarting generators, or other skills, so be sure to check out our tips and tricks and character building guides for advice on how to assemble an unstoppable squad.
