“With the Scrounger perk, you'll find considerably more ammunition in containers than you normally would.”
You will have another chance of finding ammunition in containers. This has the same 75% chance of spawning as the original ammo leveled lists and both are not mutually exclusive, making it possible to find twice the ammunition.
This perk will not affect killed enemies or containers in locations that were visited prior to taking the perk, as these containers are filled when first encountered.
“You find more ammunition in containers.”— Rank 1 description
Allows certain types of ammunition to be found as loot in random containers (i.e. cabinets, desks, metal cabinets, etc.). It works similar to the Fortune Finder perk. If both Scrounger and the Fortune Finder perk are obtained, you will find both ammunition and caps in the same containers.
80% chance to find extra ammo when you "Search" a Nuclear Winter container.
Fallout: The Roleplaying Game
Whenever rolling to determine how much ammunition is found, find more.
At rank 1, you find +3d6 additional shots. At rank 2, you find +6d6 additional shots. At rank 3, you find +10d6 additional shots.
The additional ammo found is the same as initial find, for example, if finding 10mm ammunition, this perk increases how much 10mm ammo is found. If multiple types of ammunition are found, Scrounger applies to the ammunition with the lowest rarity (GM’s choice if there is a tie).
Each time this perk is taken, the level requirement increases by 5.
