Aether caches are also places where you can find Cryo Freeze Ammo along with other ammo types. These are generally located in Aether Nests and Infested Strongholds. After you clear them out, these Aether caches will be available to loot. So, you might get lucky and gain Cryo Freeze Ammo from these caches. 

Find Crafting Schematics

Instead of the Cryo Freeze Ammo itself, you may get a crafting schematic for it. These are also located in Aether caches along within the Nests and Strongholds. The Mercenary Strongholds also have loot caches you can access after clearing them. To craft it, you'll have to exfil from the map and craft it from the acquisitions menu. After that, it will permanently unlock for you to use. Though, after you craft it there is a cooldown period to do that again.
