you can find tackety scouts around new winchester, i’m hunting them for the chairman in port prosper.
I’ve yet to find any consistent spawn point for the pink squid things, they just appear randomly - and rarely, wherever they like. Harvest em for supplies though
I can confirm that chorister swarms can now bee looted. The elusive scrive-spinsters (still haven’t seen one) are no longer necessary for the circus quest, which instead calls for cantakeri legs. They have legs, apparently. Of course, this change in requirement is accompanied by a total absence of cantakeri spawns. Just my luck.
Also, NPCs of different sorts will attack each other! Yesterday I saw a chorister swarm fighting a marauder locomotive.
