Can be taken as early as you have:
  • A Compound Bow
  • 100 HV Arrows
  • A water jug for regenerating health should it drop below 40
  • Atleast 10 Rad protection

There are a total of 18 scientists patrolling the excavator and they drop the same loot as their oil rig counterparts. This means getting lucky can give you a tier 2 weapon very early into the wipe. To safely eliminate the NPCs I would recommend to stay as far off as you can while being able to hit your compound bow shots.

it's more faster and more less amount than mining quarry that you got.

Buy RF pager from outpost for 75 scraps Find the frequency by taking it over and getting into the engine room (Maybe its a fixed freq of 4777) keep the pager in a box inside base when you hear the beeps go counter and get some leftovers or get a lot of loot by winning a fight.
Just note that there are two collection piles and the distance between them both are pretty far apart. unless the people who run it is a massive group you should have some unique opportunities.
