Scrounger is a Gene Tonic which allows the user to search containers and corpses a second time, yielding different loot. If the user chooses to search again the loot may be worse or better than the initial search. The user cannot choose to go back and take the initial search results. For this reason, it should be used preferably when the initial search comes up blank or with loot the player doesn't need. Contents of containers with scripted loot cannot be changed even when searched again.
