A tote bag is a common container item.
A tote bag has a poor capacity and above average weight reduction. It can be found in the counters of almost every store, making it one of the best substitutes until a backpack is found. However, it does not reduce movement speed. It must be equipped in either the primary or secondary hand to be accessed and can usually be dropped if a backpack is found. After obtaining a backpack, if you have spare weight capacity,
are using a one-handed weapon, and want more storage without hindering movement speed, keeping a Tote Bag is another option.
Tote bags can spawn with:
