Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville Wiki

Scavenging is one of the mission types in Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville. It can be done on unclaimed, as well as player-owned city grids, as long is there are resources in those grids. Food are marked by an apple icon, and all other resources are marked by a backpack icon. Grids with horde activities cannot be scavenged.


  • Time: varied
  • Danger: varied, depends on
    • Amount of zombies.
    • Distance to the nearest claimed block.
  • Benefits from:
    • Scavenging skill (speed, possibly chance to find items)
    • Scouted blocks (reduces danger)
    • Amount of survivors (reduces danger)
    • Total Defense skill (reduces danger)
    • At least one survivor has a vehicle equipped (ignores danger from distance)


  • Remove food and other resources from the grid, add to player's own stash.
  • Chance to find equipments.
  • Improve Scavenging skills.
  • If not previously scouted, the block will become scouted. (not effected by "improved scouting" tech or perk)


  • If the player reclaims a building that still has resources on it, it won't be automatically collected and has to be scavenged.
  • Scouting first makes the mission safer.
