Question about Scavenging Missions (and Answer!)

When recovering items from crates, is it safe to just drop these items in the extraction zone and continue on? Or is it necessary to actually carry them on the soldier when extracting?

Edit: Well for future reference, if it’s in the extraction zone it counts.

Edit 2: I must’ve made a mistake on what I collected the first time. Tested again to make sure by leaving the only Arachno spider pack on the ground in the extraction zone and it wasn’t there afterwards. My bad. But now we know for sure! Really makes the Scarab useful for collection purposes at least.


Interesting, didn’t knew that.
