Since last patch, my friends and I (a group of 4) have gotten a lot of useful BPs. We can make almost anything we need except timed charges and guns (other than the Eoka).
Of course, that’s as a collective of 4 people and a LOT of effort was put into that. We have 2 guys that basically do nothing but raid rad towns at every respawn, go on barrel hunts and get pretty much every single air drop while myself and the other guy focus on harvesting resources, hunting and building. We play on a relatively quiet server where we’re the “top dogs” outside of the admin and his small band of compadres. We basically get EVERYTHING. And still, no good gun or timed charge BPs.
I’m stoked about the introduction of the repair bench though. With that, I wouldn’t be sad to see gun BPs completely removed from the game and have air drops / barrels / rad towns being their sole source. That would make getting guns a far more valuable commodity, and would ensure that no one is sitting around with crates full of AKs.
Right now, if someone has a gun BP, dying is no big deal. There’s really very little disadvantage to death. They respawn, re-equip, and they’re back in business immediately.
