Itinerant Merchant

Itinerant Merchant

The appearing of Itinerant Merchant is one of the many Random Encounters in the Evolution: Battle for Utopia game.

The itinerant merchant welcomes you! You can always acquire something useful from me and sell me everything you don’t need. The more transactions we make, the bigger your discount in my shop. I hope that our relationship will be nothing but good, and that you don’t try to rob me. like some of my other “clients” have.

Itinerant merchant randomly show up only on terraformed locations and stays for 15 minutes.

You can trade with him or rob him. When you trade with him you can buy for example Magmatite or Steel 1:1 with Biofuel, Assault Rifle Cartridge 25 for 250 Biofuel, Data Disks 3 for 150 Biofuel or Crystallite 1 for 4 Biofuel. You can barter Steel or Magmatite 4:1 for Crystallite.

Also you can hack things (5 or 10 Reputation points). Reputation gives you a discount, +3% on top with Jaafar. After obtaining 1000 Reputation the app writes for example “1020/1000″ Reputation, so I think you can’t get more discount. When you rob him you lose 100 Reputation, but get some Resources, Cartridges and Ammunition.

For the first robbery you’ll get the research data for Incendiary Grenade G-1New Research, for a second successful robbery you’ll get the research data for Incendiary Grenade G-1 KitNew Research.

General information about the Itinerant Merchant is Here.


Always buy Data Disks and Cartridges from the Itinerant Merchant.

It is highly recommended to rob him every time he appears (after trading with him off course) to get a good loot and test your new Pistol :)

38% is the maximum possible discount.

He may change his place on location during waiting time.

Itinerant merchant can’t be attacked with the Phoenix System’s missile.

    Anyone know if this guy has any predictability to when he shows up (such as time passed or battles fought or anyyhing)? I haven’t seen him show up for quite a while now and need him to trade for Crystallite so I can upgrade my UFO pistol..

  2. avatar Marco ( Private First Class Private First Class Player's Rank 10 )

    This guy never sells me G-2 Frag Grenades, G-1 Incendiary Grenades, Stasis Grenades and U-2 Medpacks. Anyone else has the same problem?

    • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

      It’s not a problem… It’s just like that. You can get G3 Frags, Resources (magmatite, crystallite, biofuel and steel), U3 MedPacks and Ammo for Sghotguns and Machine Guns! And I think it’s all.

      Stasis you can only get them from Smuggler’s offers!

      PS: I assume you’re talking about robbing the merchant!

      • avatar Marco ( Private First Class Private First Class Player's Rank 10 )

        I’m talking about trade with him.
        I need Stasis Grenades.

  3. avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

    Well you have to wait!

  4. avatar psb ( Sublieutenant Sublieutenant Player's Rank 104 )

    i think the game automatically realises wen do we need crystallite , and that time it simply doesnt show up… i had a hell of a waiting time upgrading my dominion pistol… he simply would show only once in 1-2 days… and then come up with only 200-300 crystallite offers…

    • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

      Those are Terror Level 4 missions. And they usually appear more than once a day! Maybe you missed a few!

  5. avatar psb ( Sublieutenant Sublieutenant Player's Rank 104 )

    i will advise anyone to buy jaffar as soon as possible… he will give you a vgood discount which will only help you…

    also, refrain from attacking the merchant until you are reputation 1100 above …you should attack him early only once or twice for the incendiary grenades… it will cost you 100 reputation and -5 discount … a major loss… so wait till you get 1100 rep and then attack him… his hp doesnt change and you get better weapons to defeat him…

  6. avatar Michael ( Private Private Player's Rank 1 )

    It’s not recommended to rob the merchant, because your reputation will decrease and you will get less discounts, unless you hardly recover it again by hacking stuff for him. You drop from a discount of 35% to 25% if you rob him three times for example.

    • avatar Virgil ( Private First Class Private First Class Player's Rank 6 )

      It is more interesting to rob him each time you meet him: you get about 300 hundred resources + Cartridges + G3 grenades/ U3 medpack

    • avatar Sarcze ( Private Private Player's Rank 4 )

      35% = 1000 Rep.
      25% = 500 Rep.
      Rob 3 Times = 100*3 = 300.
      1000-300 = 700 Rep = 30%.
      35% (1000 Rep) – Rob 3 Times (300 Rep) isn’t equal to 25% (500 Rep) but 30% (700 Rep).

  7. avatar Myzrael ( Warrant Officer Warrant Officer Player's Rank 71 )

    never knew i could beat him at lvl 9, after many tires i found a way lol

  8. avatar myzrael ( Warrant Officer Warrant Officer Player's Rank 71 )

    love this guy, hes my favorit friend lol, without him my shotgun Shells/machine gun would be empty, ye and i dont buy them from him lol, oldschool style :p

  9. avatar Myzrael ( Warrant Officer Warrant Officer Player's Rank 71 )

    He looks like the collector

    • avatar Salvator ( Sergeant Sergeant Player's Rank 24 )

      He IS the Collector, gathering Biofuel from us and other “clients” to repair and restart the Terraformer Relics.
      (But I’ve never seen him finish any of them lol)

  10. avatar Yennie ( Private Private Player's Rank 5 )

    I wonder if you can get G-3 grenaides from the merchant when robbing him

  11. avatar Daniel ( Private Private Player's Rank 3 )

    Is there anything to gain by having 1000+ reputation besides discounts? Ive built almost 700 rep by now, but am thinking it might be more worth it to allways kill him for medpacks/grenades. I mean if I can live with myself for such an utilitarian view of human life in utopia… what would set me apart from Kurbatov and Kingpin in this case?

  12. avatar MEGAX ( Private Private Player's Rank 1 )

    I have a theory on the economic side of robbing the merchant. I think it would be more profitable if you do it. Mainly because of three flaws:
    -1st, reputation doesn’t make him appear more often. Unless the game punishes you by lowering rep means lesser appearances then it would be wise to not rob.
    -2nd, the 35-38% discount for 1000rep take too much time and it is not that much compare to 30mins of farming for biofuel everytime. Let’s say he appears for the minimum of 2 times a day, that means u only get minimum of 10rep/1encounter => 10 encounters for 1 rob = 5-10days . But keeping the rep above 200 could be wise too.
    -3rd, them u2 med and resources kinda tempting to rob him evrytime, buy then rob to get 100-300 resources means it can neutralized the profit of discounting. And he sell stuff randomly, selling your stuff remains the same exchange rate of others resources but not biofuel.

    I haven’t tried to rob him yet, this is just what i have to considered when the thiught came up. Of course, this theory has a hole and that is the price of advancing in the storyline meant the price/resources of the merchant, the scarcity in your level, the tougher mob,…increased drastically as you level up. This might force you to save evey biofuel. I’m still at level 14 and very comfortable with g1 frag/med and enjoying the 18% dicounts. Maybe it all relying on your farming methods…if only the game punish rep=encounters rate
