Chests and Aether Caches are generally found in Aether Nests and Infected Strongholds. You may also find these in the Mercenary Caches, but there's a low probability of finding them in these. So, your best chances are clearing out the Strongholds and Nests and seeing what is in the Chest and Caches.

Finding crafting schematics

Crating schematics can be gained generally from reward rifts which are done by completing contracts around the map.

Completing contracts within the medium-threat zone has a higher chance of rewarding you with various schematics, including the Dead Wire mod. That's why if you're looking for this mod's schematics, you may try to complete contrast within the medium-threat zone. After getting the schematic you'll need to extract it to keep this permanently. After crafting it will be a cooldown period before you can craft it again.

This occasionally shocks enemies, which can certainly be useful when engaged in combat. This is particularly useful when facing a large horde of zombies, as shocking one will shock the others near it as well. Equipping a large magazine has a higher chance of making this happen.
