    You know mathematically, you have to open an infinite number of containers before you can be sure that you can't find any beakers.

    I apologize for my dumb comment. Beer induced intoxication doesn't lead to a diminished responsibility.

    You cant find a beaker. A beaker must find you.

    Make sure you grab every supply drop as well. Mostly junk, but they can spawn in there as well.

    It's like saying "Hot water heater".

    anyway

    It is definitely most random.

    I play on default everything setting and I have beakers falling out of my pockets. No chainsaws or augers though.

    Are augers still a thing? I don't think I've ever seen one with A17.x

    Pharmacies, Nurses, and Traders. If you run through each other those a few times, I almost always find one with a little trying.

    uh...nurses?

    Expecting to eventually get a beaker from a nurse in A17 is going to result in a lot of trying...

    RNG is RNG... day 93 and nary a military plating mod drop or the schematic.

    My rwg world has a few of the pop'n'pills 1 story bldgs, and I've gotten a buncha beakers.
    Mil plating? nope.

    (just like trying to find the minibikes for dum♥♥♥♥s... sometimes got on day 1, others, day bazillion. Or a frippin padlock!)

    :P

    Beakers were removed from zombie nurses back in A16.

    There's a Pharmaceutical HQ, Higashi Pharmaceutical, it has a massive satellite receiver on the top of it, and is something like 10 floors. I usually find a few each time I go through there, there's a zillion chemistry kit thingies.

    Then consider yourself lucky. You won the 7 Days lottery. Others don't have a beaker on day 40. It's all random.

    That's the way it is. Some are lucky, others not.

    But to say "I was lucky so there is no problem" shows that the problem was not understood. Beakers are a rare item but at same time they are important for the game. I am of the opinion that there should always be the possibility that one can compensate missing luck with effort.
