So let me start off by saying I am no Whitesushi . My formatting might not be the best and there might be some errors. Also this will probably be a rather long post so I will do my best and TLDR it at the bottom.
With the recent update to bacon(50% moar!) I had several questions.
- Is it 50% more items that you can loot bacon from?
- What if an item only drops 1 bacon? Surely you can't get 1.5 bacon from an item.
- Is the 50% rounded up at all for items that only drop 1?
Well, with several hours of testing in the field, looting hundreds of items 100+ times I have some data. This may be anecdotal, you may not get the same results and this is a slightly small sample, but I consider it to be more accurate than not.
I was not using an outlander with loot find. I wanted my data to be as normal as possible. I was using a standard soldier with no +loot chance bonus
I didn't see any changes in items that could drop bacon. Everything that could before still drops bacon normally. I did however notice that it seems items that only drop 1 bacon prior to the update now have a chance to drop 2. The way I see it is the range has been increased and it rounds up.
For example : Item x only drops one bacon prior to patch. After patch item x can now drop 2(50% of 1 is .5, if you round it up that's 1. 1+1 = 2). Every item that only dropped 1 bacon for me prior to this patch now drops at most 2(from my study) but is rather rare.
I went ahead and gathered 100 of each plant 'type'. To keep this short do not farm plants for bacon. The drop rate is terrible(roughly 2% for each 'type'), but you can get bacon from them. From my experience though I could not get bacon from the rose bushes or little flowers found commonly in small sub zones/grasslands/forests. <
Can o' Meat / Dog Houses
are by far the best in terms of bacon. The Can o' meat and doghouse(You have to smash it!) have a 100% to drop bacon! I did get a very small amount of bacon from the trash bags/cans(I did not get any from the recycling bins though) and the little flower pots in houses but if you see a doghouse(Only found in suburban zones(MY experience)) smash is instantly! Or if you find a Can o' Meat(usually found on the outside of the map where the rocks are plenty) Loot it asap. You have a higher chance to get 2-3, a slightly lower chance to get just 1 and a slightly higher chance to get 4!
There you have it! Now you know what to keep an eye out for or prioritize when you go looting. To give you an example of how I did this research, I simply looted just about everything possible in every kind of zone. When an Item gave bacon I marked what gave it and how much. I would continue searching just about everything in every zone to find out what did and didn't drop bacon until I searched 100 of every item that dropped bacon to get an accurate number on the chance and min-max amount of bacon obtained.
TLDR: For quick easy bacon smash doghouses(Found by houses/outside) and loot the Can o' Meat(Found on the edge of the map where all the rocks are) commonly found in suburbs.
