No loot, anywhere
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After today's update I am unable to find loot anywhere. I have tried using Tab to see if the loot is just invisible, no luck. Multiple servers, multiple locations, multiple lives.

I'm finding loot everywhere. Way more than before. Think you may be hitting building that were already looted

Not a chance, I was at the Northeast Airfield which was full of zombies and had closed doors everywhere. Not a single piece of loot anywhere. Same for every building in Krasnostav.

Same here, multiple towns, all doors closed. First time i see a not looted police station empty of weapons and attachments.

I have the same issue, tried 5 servers, hardcore and regular, searched for hours, not seen a single item, not even a rotten fruit. The game is completely devoid of loot or any items. Its totaly broken. I guess Ill just stop playing until they fix it. Pretty major bug - how did they not notice there are no items when testing?

I have found too much loot. Far to much. Especially military loot. I went to the NWAF and i am drowning in ak mags. Me and my friend found at least 35 mags on the whole nwaf...and a helicopter crash with 10 m4 mags

It is possible that this is isolated to a specific set of servers. I for instance believe I was on LA and LAX servers hosted by gamesnet and maybe fragnet, but all are in the LA area. Is it possible its a server setting these hosting providers missed when they updated?

I have tried over 20 servers - all my favourites and a few random ones, not a single item of loot. Every room bare. Not even a book or a rotten kiwi. This is not an isolated insident - this is a permanent problem for people who have it.
So far, evey person I met in game has the same issue. They just server hop in hope of finding a non-broken server, but they are all like it. It could be a problem with the client, not server, but its unplayable. Also, characters NEVER save, even if you logout/in on the same server.

NOTE: I am on european servers. Perhaps USA ones are fine, European ones are all broken.

I was playing yesterday on serveral HC/first person servers and found enough loot.
And i was playing on durch and german servers, no problem for me

I am playing on german servers too and as i said before no problems at all.

I think my character was bugged - I logged into another server at one point and I was geared out. Try joining a server with lots of people on it and see if it's fixed for you. That's what I did, and it seems to have worked itself out...

I have also experienced this. All doers closed and not 1 item in the entire village.

It may be isolated to certain servers. I've had no problems with loot, though I only join high pop HC servers in the US. Loot spawn may have some connection to amount of players on server. Which if true needs some adjustment as it seems that there is way too much loot on the high pop and none on the low pop or empty servers.

I have spent 2 hours looking for loot on exp HC and found next to nothing. Yes I can tell people have been there before me, but I wasn't even finding that much junk let alone any thing else. I was also on when the server rest. When I got back on doors that where open where closed now, but still no loot. Way to go devs how to kill a game.

Same problem, i was actually going to file my own ticket regarding this issue until i saw this. I play on Hardcore, i can't find anything. I can only find the loot that spawns underneath those blue trailers.

Of the 20 or so public hard core servers I tried multiple times over the last 3 days, one only has loot and saves my char. The others have no items (not one), and always re-spawn the char. Half of these give a message like "could not load character from server, recommend disconnect now to avoid overwriting your char" or similar. Mostly, a message flashes up then goes before you can read it. The servers are all European - tried French, German, UK etc. All NON experimental, public hive, hard core. (regular doesn't work either - no items, always respawns char, even on same server)

Hello Kosugi,

Thanks for sending in your feedback on this issue. I'll close the ticket since the loot respawning is active and since it's not possible to reproduce the bug in the latest internal build.
