    Hi, myself and several others have noticed their absence from Bandit and Skeleton encounters. Is this intended or a bug?

    Thanks for the report! Nothing's changed with these chests and reagent pouches, but I'll look into it. Issue #64403

    I'll also mention that they're slightly randomized, so I'm wondering if you got a random roll that gave you a selection you didn't expect? If you keep entering those random encounters, I wonder if you'll see those items appearing with subsequent visits.

    I always see chests in the encounters I enter but the last dozen or so didn't have any reagent pouches. I don't do them very frequently so those last dozen took place over the span of several weeks, so it is perhaps not a recent patch problem.

    Reagent bags can be rare from certain encounters, while some have a reliable reagent bag. I think Desert Encounter (or at least the Atavist version) always seems to have one particular pouch, while in the more common Plains and Road encounters they are much rarer. And this has been going on for a few months at least. I've also found chests to be unreliable in Bandit encounters, or maybe it's just because they might have more than one pop location.

    Yes, the chests and reagents bag locations are randomized. A bag might appear in location #1, or location #2, or not at all.

    I have also noticed a lack of bags and chests. It's been quite a while.
