Only to be given enough duct tape from a mailbox at lvl1 and a working forge.
Y'all full of it here, bro. Duct tape is only looted from loot groups "junk", "garbage", and "workbenchLoot". Here are the containers which have those groups:
Junk: cntTrashPile01, cntBin, cntBruteStyleTrashCanFull, cntTiltTruckFull, cntTiltTruckFullFlies, cntStorageGenericPOI, cntChest01, cntCoffin, cntCoffinWildWestClosed, cntCardboardBox, cntSuitcase, cntLuggageMediumClosed, cntBathTubGore, cntTrashCompactor, cntDumpster, cntDumpsterFlies, cntMorticianDrawer, cntGreenDrawer, cntUtilityCartFull. cntCar03SedanDamage0Master, cntCar03SedanDamage1Master, cntBusSchool
Garbage: metalSheetRandomHelper, woodSheetRandomHelper, cntTrash_can01, cntFancyGarbageCan, cntDomedTrashCanFull, carsRandomHelper
For what it's worth, you have at least a 3.8% chance to pull Duct Tape when searching any of those containers. Could be higher, depending on the container.
workbenchLoot: cntCollapsedWorkbench (3.94% chance of Duct Tape)
The cntMailbox container pulls from loot groups "booksAllScaled" and "resourcePaper", neither of which includes duct tape.
Use that Junk list up there to guide your search for duct tape. Note that none of the loot bags dropped by zombies include duct tape. Duct tape is 'junk'; the loot bags drop higher-value items. Here's a sneak peak for A20 though: EntityLootContainerBandit will drop junk occasionally, but only 0.38% chance of Duct Tape (assuming they don't change the loot tables).
