A maximum of ten boxes can appear on the ledge, split into two groups: five boxes are located on the west side of the ledge. These boxes are labeled "Legion Dropbox" and contain Legion Denarii totaling 235 in count between the five boxes. All five boxes will always be present. Up to five additional boxes may be present on the east side of the ledge overlooking Cottonwood Cove. At least one of these boxes will be present. The number of boxes depends on how well-liked the Courier is by Caesar's Legion; all five will appear with an "idolized" reputation.
Loot in each box is randomized but can include any of the following, with more valuable items appearing at higher reputation levels (liked or idolized):
Various types and amounts of ammunition and healing items.
As indicated by the disguised Frumentarius, any items left inside the cache boxes will be removed once the quest re-appears. However, items taken from the boxes and left on the ground nearby will remain indefinitely.
If the player later acquires negative reputation with the Legion, the quest marker will no longer appear. However, the Legion will continue to restock the cache boxes. With the location now known, the player can still take items regularly even without Caesar's permission, and without karma loss.
