Kenshi Wiki

Tech Hunters are adventurers dedicated to scouring the ancient ruins of the world in search of lost technologies and artifacts. They generally work for the Machinists, supplying them with the materials they need for their research. They also use their knowledge of the world and its inhabitants to help newer adventurers, providing tips and guides in the Tech Hunter's Notes series of books.

  • Once dismissed, all player characters become Tech Hunters. In terms of lore it can be explained that the basis of all factions is the exploration of the past that any "free" character will go back to the "default" state.
  • Trepp is supposedly one of the Tech Hunters captains, and can be heard by other comrades that she is a woman that "breaks your balls", which probably refers to her recklessness. Her quotes can be most often found in the Tech Hunter's Note Series.
  • Skeletal repair beds become free once allied.
