A list of all currently insured items

Insurable items can be insure either inside of the Stash or in the Raid deployment preparation which also shows a list of all currently insured items. While in the Raid deployment preparation it is possible to apply insurance to all items that are carried on the PMC at that time.
Every insured item will be given a insurance indicator in the lower right corner and are outlined in orange, hovering over the indicator tells with whom the item is insured.

Insurance fees[edit | edit source]

The insurance fee is calculated on the item value, Therapist demands 9.5% and Prapor 3.8% of the item value, but some items will have higher fee's.
