I think if you have full awareness when you search the dump you find items that are better then your average 800$ junk items. As someone who has taken a LSD and has full awareness and can't find items walking around the city should be finding better items in the dump then finding someones cheap eco friendly merit.

You do know you can only find what has been trashed by other civilians right?

It's previously been the case.

I've found two DP in the dump over the past week :/

Items have a "value" assigned to them, seemingly, and your awareness level SEEMS to increase the odds of finding more higher value items when you search. But it's still SEEMINGLY a case of each sear h has a percentage chance of finding a high value item verses low value.
So, for example, lets say each incremental increase of your awareness bumps up your CHANCE of finding a high value item by 1/25th each search. A ten awareness would then have a potential 11/25 CHANCE of finding a more high value item each time. This SEEMS to be how it currently functions.

The dump has been needed multiple times, but most notably two years ago to diminish players from dumping items so their high awareness multistage could immediately scoop them up. Back in the day high awareness meant no low value items. 10/10 awareness meant you got the highest value items in the dump with each search.

Very few players used to use the dump when it came out, and its use has exploded o we the past year.

At one point there were a handful with 45k searches +, and the closest after them was a max of 5k searches.

When the dump was new I went over a year without finding any low value items like bricks, lead pipes etc.


Point is, to sum up: the current way it works is how it will work until for the reasons stated above.


Devs can and do change things unannounced to ensure things don't compromise game play, and the dump has quietly been one of them. The changes were needed too, especially with the hoards of 'Scavengers' that now populate the game.
