Ok I found a burn… I plotted it while another player was filling their inventory. I got PMed by them saying the owner is a friend and you are getting reported unless you unplot it. My reply was I will meet the previous owner and unplot it so they can replot it. I still got messaged after to unplot it but not from original owner. I have GC for a while and will gladly give it back to the owner with same ps4 ID name but only to them. Am I in the wrong or do you think I’m wrong?? Just wondering what people think is right and wrong when it comes to burned beacons
The rule is if a beacon goes out it is fair game. So you didn’t do anything wrong. I’d wait to hear from the original owner. If the other player was scaving and they didn’t take the time to plot their find first it is their loss.
Id have done the same. Only the owner matters and id give him a month to get in touch with me. Any owner of an expiring beacon is lucky, if his build is found by a veteran, who doesnt need the contents of the plots.
I think your good man, you were smarter by plotting it, the beacon is out then it’s out, if I ever let mine expire I would hope someone tears my sh** apart and puts it all to good use or sells it
I think you’re all good bro.
One of my previous guild mates let one of his beacons expire. Not like he hadn’t been on to see the warnings. I checked on it 6 hours afterwards and all the good stuff was gone. I plotted it and went to bed. When I got up, I had messages from him wanting it back. So I released the beacon and messaged him back that it was all his.
Sat there and waited an hour. Other players wandered by and looted more of it while I was waiting. I finally got up and left.
I was kicked from the guild. No good deed goes unpunished.
Is there a way to see who owns the blocks if the beacon is out?
I’ve only ever found one burned out beacon… It was a couple shops half regened on Imoco in the middle of nowhere, good stuff, some coils, refined gems, blocks, mats. I filled my pockets and brought a really brand new player I had met 20m earlier and told him to scav hard. Don’t remember seeing any name on it anything though - I would have remembered, it really helped me out starting off.
No. When expiration occurs the prior owner is not revealed.
Hehe nice one
I came across a small settlement on Raxxa. Half the buildings were half regenerated. One of my good friends was there. He had grabbed what he wanted and was about to leave. Only thing I saw I wanted was the shop stands (at that point, they were hard for me to craft and too expensive to buy). It took forever to gather them up. Some even had coin in them (one had 20k coins!).
I was halfway through gathering them when another player came up and plotted the rest. That never occurred to me to do that…
The old “Its my best friends build I was holding for him” line works NEVERYTIME lmao. I always tellem if he was your best friend he evidently doesnt feel the same or he woulda gave you perms sucka! now go on get! I got fat loots to sort!
I wonder, what’s the proper way in a situation when 2 looters meet at an expired beacon, both have clear intentions to loot it for themselves. what if one of them plots the entire thing to loot it later in peace ? is having spare plots considered a fair advantage ?
EDIT: as for the situation you described, I too think you are in the right.
When 2 looters meet its like a gunfight the seasoned looter has the upper hand because hes dealt with every situation and has heard all the fake excuses and or tactics to protect himself.
Like you mentioned though I will grab them and loot later if theres hostility. I have looters still unlooted and have been for months. I just save them for a rainy day.
Well you should probably empty them if they are in a desirable area at least…
None in your area youre good. I sold all those lol
Lol I just meant in general - but I appreciate that!
Someone heard from the old owner that told me to keep it but save his friends memorial. Sadly that section fell under someone else’s plot protection. But thank you for everyone’s input
If they have sat half empty for months, someone could report them and you’d never know, unless you went looking for them.
