To the people seeing the posts of crazy lucky rewards people have been getting from the “Scav Case” in the hideout and thinking it might be OP, you should see the cost of building it in the first place.

To build the Scav Case you need to have already built:

  • Level 3 Nutrition Unit
  • Level 3 Medstation
  • Level 3 Security
  • Level 3 Illumination
  • Level 3 Lavoratory
  • Level 2 Water Collector
  • Level 2 Workbench
  • Level 2 Vents
  • Level 2 Intelligence Center

 

To build all of this, ignoring skill and trader levels that you also need. You're going to need the following:

  • 627,000 roubles
  • 8 Phase Control Relays
  • 4 Electric Motors
  • 24 Wires
  • 7 Capacitors
  • 14 Light Bulbs
  • 2 Working LCDs
  • 8 NIXXOR lens'
  • 1 SSD Drive
  • 1 Car Battery
  • 21 Corrugated Hoses
  • 13 Bolts
  • 7 Screw Nuts
  • 3 Duct Tapes
  • 6 Sets of tools
  • 3 Electric drills
  • 1 Leatherman Multitool
  • 5 Packs of Screws
  • 2 Pressure Gauges
  • 3 Xenomorph Sealing Foams
  • 3 Sodium Bicarbonates
  • 3 Coffee Majaica
  • 4 Wrenches
  • 2 Heat Exchange Alkali's
  • 1 LEDX
  • 8 Saline Solutions
  • 1 Medical Bloodset
  • 4 Folders With Intelligence
  • 3 Secure Flash Drives
  • 4 Powercords
  • 4 Damaged Hard Drives
  • 2 Bronze Lions
  • 2 Gold Skull Rings
  • 6 Golden Neck Chains
  • 3 Rolers
     

Adding all of these up, and assuming you bought everything at the current cheapest flea market listing price, you'd spend 13,952,428 roubles total building everything required for the "Scav Case", and building the case itself.
 
On top of the nearly 14 million rouble upfront cost (probably closer to 20 million if you want to build it quickly), you also have to pay a fee each time you want to scavs to collect loot for you.
 
While some people are getting incredibly lucky and getting things like red keycards, most people will probably not even make back their initial investment anytime soon, if ever.
 
The "Scav Case" is a cool new feature, and if you're planning on maxing out your hideout anyways its worth doing, but it's probably not "OP" by any means, and you shouldn't be rushing towards building it thinking that it is going to make you bank.
