The Duke (Shopkeeper) - What You Can Do
Buy Items & Supplies
You may purchase a variation of products such as recipes, ammo, baggage, and first aid med. Tip: we recommend buying Extra Baggage early on in the game.
You may upgrade your weapons' stats by customizing them at Duke's shop. Note that you'll need money to be able to do so.
Sell Items & Weapons
You can sell your weapons to The Duke for extra money at half the original price. You may buy them again, but they will of course be marked up again. The benefit of doing so is that you get to free up inventory space, so it's something you may want to consider further down the game.
