One of the stats that can appear on medium to high level armor in The Division is "Scavenging". That game doesn't really explain what exactly this stat does. Is it useful? If so, in what situations?
It actually is something like +x % for Magic find. It increases your Chance to loot better gear, techs etc. We compared in a group the various scavenger percentages. Overall, the higher, the better. Its really nice to get yellow tech, when you only get a green one, if you didnt give some % into scavenging.
Some Addition: Scavenging will not increase loot count. But it will increase the Chance, that your loot is of better quality (yellow instead of purple item, not 7% crit instead of 5,5%)
