Manhacks generate rare loot

I created some manhacks with power converters to help out my frail bionic patient not die in melee, but i've come across an interesting problem. When defeated, the manhacks have a chance to drop 5 plutonium cells, regardless of what went into making it.

I can't imagine this is intentional, as it creates a (relatively) cheap method of generating plutonium, especially since you can gut a manhack for all but one component.

I'm pretty sure it is intentional, but I don't think anyone ever considered the possibility of recrafting and farming them...

Its kind of like save scumming. Not technically cheating, but also entirely cheating.

It's taking advantage of a balance issue, not cheating. Cheesing, yes, cheating no. I do classify save scumming as entirely, 100% cheating.
