    Unless it's changed in 17.4 (which I haven't played yet), you gotta find 'em, not make 'em.

    Itís a somewhat common quest reward. I almost always get one within having done 3-4 quests.

    Would it be naughty of me if I revealed I still haven't done a trader quest? Hehe. I'll get round to it eventually I guess, but I prefer the "I am Legend" last-man-standing style of play. But, nice to know if I'm really stuck for a beaker, I can go visit a trader and get one as a reward.

    Trader quest rewards, sometimes they actually sell them, found in Pop'n'Pills boxes and even in air drop crates.

    Got one doing a trader quest from a loot box on day 2. sweet!

    Just remember if RNGesus KNOWS youíre questing for a beaker you wonít find one until day 60 and it will be in that garbage pile you passed a 1000 times near your base but never got around to checking...

    It's been my experience that Roland is speaking immutable truth there... ;-)
