Watch this video, and do what he does.

Every time I reloaded into the world after quitting, it was there.
- (others have noted not having the same success rate probably due to others doing the same thing or it was previously taken in that server you have joined)

Took 20 mins just because of the loading times.

Also, I did not move my camp (saving caps for other achievement). I just used the fast travel spawn location with a custom marker and ran there every time.

ReptarOnIce3000 THANK YOU! I've been doing almost nothing but discovering locations to find magazines. This worked like a charm. Like you said, about 20 min. +1!!! smile

wetwork M Thank you for posting the solution. Location and method worked for me but did not have the 100% success rate on the magazine being there each time. Took an additional 6 times for me. Not a deal breaker by any means, just a FYI if people are expecting it to be there 100% of the time. Cheers.

Alex Sobecki Got 6 magazines and haven't had another spawn in about 20 server refreshes now. So yeah, definitely not 100%. It could be because others are getting there before me in the server each time?

D3V1Lz ASSAZZ1N I added the change of success rates for your experience but yea since they are live serves others are probably doing the exact same or it was just rtaken/not spawned earlier in that server. sorry you guys are not having the same level of success as I had.

Alex Sobecki It's alright, I'm currently using the same method for the magazine in Appalachian Antiques and that's spawning decently enough. Still not 100%, but the one at Twin Lakes wasn't spawning at all for me after those first 6.

EDIT: Also interesting to note the Appalachian Antiques location spawns different magazines. I've had different issues of Astoundingly Awesome Tales, Tesla Science, and the U.S. Covert Operations Manual spawn here so maybe go here if you want more variety and not the same magazine 20 times?

v SATAN x In case anyone was wondering, the method in the video still works even after today's update.

iN5iDiOU5 iRi5H Do you actually have to read them or just pick up 20 mags? Because the video makes it look like you don't even have to consume the mag, just find 20 mags?

WKFJonesy this popped for me before i read the final one so i suggest its for picking them up? also i just left my camp there and every time i loaded in i checked the spot, rather than grinding it in one go.

Vandel Buster This will always work unless they move the spawn locations. So, no need for people to really be all, 'This still works as of xxx date.'

c36d This and the bobblehead one dont seem to register or track at all right now. I saved up the correct number of both and activated them with no payoff

Hexa Fox @Vandel Buster Well they moved the spawns because I just found this location and it is a box of snack cakes instead of a magazine. So I am all like 'This no longer works as of right now'. Unless it has a chance to spawn as something other than a magazine.
