Corpse looting

Activities theme

Player must search through corpses to gain any valuables they were carrying.


The first video game about Corpse looting was released in 1994.

Bethesda Softworks, Square Enix and Deep Silver has published most of these games

* Scavenging
* NPC inventory
* Permanent corpses
* Dissolving corpses - forces some hurry in looting as otherwise any items are lost.
This is as opposed to items, item piles or sacks filled with items being "ejected" from the corpse into the game world which the player picks up instead.

Some items may still be dropped in "regular" manner, such as any items the characters were carrying in their hands (the readied weapon), but these are outside the scope of this tag.
