Well, I did one of my cross-country night deep penetration patrols looking for the 4-5* hunting rifle in the ruins (1603 -3357) and found it crawling with Hunters! So I backed up a little and to make something of the night and to make a plan, I went looking for a safe house that showed on the HUD, but I couldn’t find in passing, just close by.
Under an overhang. Best Safe House ever!!! It overlooked a Beacon which I sniped from the entrance - nothing got near me. Then came a Harvester with its escort and then 6 Hunters. Place crawling with “Trade”, and not a round struck me. Took me forty minutes of action before I could even go and collect from the Harvester, but never hit me once. You can sit up there all day and knock them over for a past time. I started off protecting my flanks with mines, but they never found the way up, so I went round and picked them all up again. I like mines…
Mind you FNIX Harvester never dropped one single intersting thing. A bit of buckshot. Among 14 FNIX Dogs, six FNIX Hunters and an FNIX Harvester, not a round of 7.62. Not one. I was under constant artillery fire the entire time, clods of earth and rocks being blown into the air, dust in clouds and one Dual Purpose round out of the lot of them. And that’s with a Salvage unlocked. They must think I like crawling about old bases looking for ammo. They must think I like it.
Didn’t drop one single interesting thing between the lot of them. Not one round of the type I had used to kill them all, so I shall have to go shopping before I come back, 'cos this is ammo desert. Perhaps I have a bug.
