Yes, that's how I've been tackling it so far, but the past few months I've also read posts here and there with people finding multiple weapon components in the same settlement or building even. Likewise, I've seen screenshots of lockers filled with Ionised Gas whereas I find one or two at most. There have also been confusing reports of completely identical Tourist settlements (with similar factions and faction states) either offering Opinion Polls or none at all.Ahhhh, I know how to obtain weapon components, and it is not from searching the obvious places, such military bases. Trading is your friend. I find that the big tourist sites can be farmed for tradable material, such as chips and optical lenses. I have spent a lot of time looting the tourist sites that comprise the PWR at one end of the landing pads and the bar and HAB wings at the opposite side of the pads. Each of the HAB wings has 3 floors, with 2/4/4 rooms working top to bottom for a total of 10 in each wing and 20 in total. The average is several chips per room. At 2 chips per room, 2 x 20 = 40 chips = 80 barter points = 4 weapon components plus change. In addition, you can also pick up a lot of stuff for cash.
