“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.
