The Dealer is a random event that appears on the World Map after a player builds a CB Radio. Once you have a CB Radio you have to tune it to the right pitch to find his message. If you accept it he will tell you what to bring as well as his location. He will trade you his Weapon Crate if you give him the items or materials he needs.

Dealer Joe event

The Dealer is getting in touch with you. There must be new supplies.

The Dealer can be attacked but can only be damaged by a Shotgun (dealing 1 damage per shot) or an Milkor MGL (most called Grenade Launcher), dealing the number of damage is 3. When you attack him three times, he will turn hostile and attack you with his M16.

"Stop it!" - Dealer

"Back off!" - Dealer

"I warn you!" - Dealer

"You asked for it!" - Dealer

WARNING: Once the Dealer becomes hostile he remains that way even if you go to another zone. You can remove his hostility by closing and relaunching LDoE. (This will reset him to his original friendly attitude.)

If a player activates auto mode near the Dealer, the player will start attacking the Dealer, so be careful!


Recorded Trades

Below is a simple list of what the Dealer has been seen trading for.

Since update Beta v.1.5.2, trading has changed. From now on you're always trading for a Weapon Crate, not knowing what is inside. It is possible only to trade for one crate at a time.

Trader Skill

After update Beta v.1.7.12, the Dealer may offer to trade a Puppy in a Box instead of a Weapon Crate. These trades usually involve rare to extremely rare materials:

(Earn on the Bunker Alfa is the good way to get those stuff)

Recorded Loot

Data collected from 200 Weapon Crate rolls in v.1.15.1. The average probability of getting one of the following items is 12.5% ± 3%. Based on the current sample size (n=200), Shotgun and Skull Crusher are slightly less common than the other items.

Halloween 2017

During the 2017 Halloween holiday, the Dealer had guests: Frankie Stein and his shackle-controlled pet zombie, Pumpkinhead. He also has an empty chopper featuring the holiday-themed paint pattern.

You can earn points in his store by trading in Zombie Tooth (2 pts. each), Zombie Eye (4 pts. each), and Zombie Brains (10 pts. each). With these points, you can buy:

  • Zombie Collar (cost 500): Used for temporary winning zombies to your side. Works only for 5 zombies at a time.
  • Pumpkin Helmet (cost 1000): Protects the head and brains, but disappears soon after the holiday is over. Armor: 6
  • Pattern "Halloween'17" (cost 5000): Allows you to repaint your Chopper.


  • There is a bug in which the event timer would only tick down when in the app (this has only been tested with the Dealer so far). To clarify: if you walk toward the timed location, close the app, then only log back AFTER your avatar reaches it, when your avatar leaves, the location timer will be what was when you closed the app. This can result in significant energy savings on the Dealer's double visits; i.e., the Dealer with a 25-minute timer that is 20 minutes' walking distance away can be visited twice without any energy spent. 


  • Prior to Beta v.1.5.2, the name of the Dealer was the Trader. As of Beta v.1.5.3, the screen that appears when you chat with this NPC still says "Trader."
  • Renamed from Dealer to Dealer Joe in Beta v.1.9.7
