      On B route (as 9S) you can farm them in Desert Housing Complex, where you fight Adam for the first time.

      Enemies there spawn infinitely and drop nice loot along with large gears.

        Emi's Shop sells Large Gears and other High-Grade Materials.
        Here is what I did. (These steps are not refined, some may be skippable.)
        1.) Spawn Desert Camp and find him nearby, shoot him and talk to him
        2.) Head to his home (Search a video online for that)
        3.) Pick up Emil's Mask
        4.) Fast Travel to City Ruins: Near the Tower
        5.) Cross the bridge into the Abandoned Commercial Building and head back on the bridge halfway towards City Ruins
        6.) Check your Map to see if he spawned near Resistance Camp and if not, repeat step 5
        7.) Walk over to resistance camp, shoot/talk to him, and he has a chance of selling (High-Grade Materials or +6 Plug-in Chips)

        Here's some info on Emil's Shop's spawn rate/locations/etc.

          Someone should add that you can get the large dears from the stubbies found in the Copied City during Route C.

          • Easiest method to farm these is by taking the quest Machine Examination 2, it will ask you to gather 4 Pristine Screws and 1 Large Gear, go to the save point City Ruins: Near the Tower, standing right by the tower will be a Goliath Biped and a Small Stubby, the GB will drop 1 Pristine Screw (I have 42 of these and they have dropped with 100% dependability) and the Stubby will drop a Large Gear (also 100% dependability). Simply save and reload and they will respawn.
