Issue #25290: Issues with loot and enemy respawns
Not sure if this is cell specific or not, but I've noticed this during various playthoughs and decided to report it
Sometimes enemies and loot respawn way before they were supposed to (not really sure about items, but I'm quite certain about the enemies) in various locations in the main game and dlc too:
Some crates at the entrance of the mole rat cave near red rocket truck station, they will always spawn tools. Loot them, fast travel to other location, fast travel back and the loot will respawn.
Same with loot on lexington, the mr handy fuel at the entrance of the super duper mart and the pre war money on the bank. There is a duffle bag with 100 pre war money in it and if you have patience you have a infinite source of pre war money just fast travelling in and out of lexington.
Raiders and loot in front of the shamrock taphouse
Super mutants at the radio tower near Finch Farm, I cleared them all and the location was marked as clear, done the finch farm quest and they were all back when I returned.
Super mutants and ghouls fighthing north of the Eagle's Cove Tannery in far harbor, they always respawn every time I fast travel there
Fallon's department store, you literally spawn in the middle of three super mutant suiciders every time you fast travel there
And I'm sure there are more examples, these are just the ones I have on memory
