NieR Automata: All traders - list NieR Automata guide, tips

This page of the guide for NieR Automata contains a list of all the traders. You will also find out where to buy the best items available in the game.

This page of the NieR Automata game guide lists traders that appear in the game world. We explain where to find particular traders, the types of goods they stock, and whether there are any additional requirements to unlock the option to trade with these NPCs.

Key information about traders

The game world is inhabited by different traders and not all of them are available from the start - NieR Automata: List of traders - Summaries - NieR Automata Guide

The game world is inhabited by different traders and not all of them are available from the start. You may be unable to use the services of a given trader if you can't access their location or haven't sufficiently progressed the storyline. Additionally, it's worth keeping in mind that the stock of some traders can be changed or updated as you progress through the game and they may have new items for sale.

Traders can sell a variety of goods or specialize in a particular field. For example, they might exclusively sell chips or weapons. Traders with specific specializations are guaranteed to stock higher quality items.

The game allows you to sell your items, but keep in mind that selling unique objects or crafting ingredients is not recommended. These objects may be useful to you later in the game and getting rid of them too early might make it difficult to find more of them later on. We advise you to sell common items first, those of which you definitely have too many (the game allows you to have up to 99 of each item in your inventory). The interesting thing is that by progressing to the next Routes, you can sell the same inventory items for more money. This is an additional incentive to keep them in your inventory for longer and then sell them later to earn more gold.

Some traders offer additional services. For example, they might be able to upgrade weapons or pods, or combine your chips. It is worth using these services in order to upgrade your equipment and thereby increase the effectiveness of the controlled character on the battlefield.
