Streets and hardware stores.

I'm not going to bother going anywhere else as they probably don't have a "container" containing the parts

I have now found parts in a different location every time. As with the christmas parts and every other item that is non-area specific it's all RNG. Herc boxes, christmas decorations, beacon parts, they can all be obtained from any container. The only thing that makes one location better than another is by chosing a site that has more containers to loot. While you're not increasing the chance of finding anything per container because of the type of site, you're increasing the chance due to the sheer number of containers.

I myself have always found a beacon part in a container that would normally hold guns (Green weapons lockers, humvees, and black gun boxes immediately come to mind). As a result, I would probably suggest visiting any place with a gun icon over it, or any maps that have the possibility of having at least a green gun box or two in it (Some warehouses, maybe construction sites).

Security, 2 parts

Gunstore, 2 parts

Park, 4 parts

 

Lvl 22-26 areas (as that's where I am) automated on this run.

 

I had some from streets earlier; no luck with several hardware store/warehouse runs.  Gun locations and gun boxes were good; got my last parts (3 housings) in a large park.

The areas for me that I can find those stuff are: Police Station, Streets, Security and Warehouses (all in "Brookvale" area). I think Con buffed the drop rates of the beacon, I can find more than I expected. A thread were someone gets tons of the components for the Beacon.:

Pretty much this. Any container that can drop weapons also seems to have a chance to drop beacon parts. Therefore, while you can get them from any weapon container, the best places to get them will be mission zones with high numbers of these containers - Highways, streets, gun stores, police stations, security buildings, parks, and even warehouses all have fair chances of dropping beacon parts.

 

If you want them fast, send your people out to the lower level versions of the areas listed above - it shouldn't take you more than 2-3 days to get all the parts you need, especially with the new increased drop rates. Just keep in mind the beacon takes 24 hours to build, so make sure you find all the parts you need well before the time limit on the task hits the 1 day left mark.

I find them there where I normally find good gear and weapons, but those beacon parts replaced them...
