Pretty sure it does respawn loot, but not in the quantities you might want. Remember that the exp server is 600+ people a day, so the loot isn't there to begin with, it's all looted, it's all gone. Can't respawn if the limit is hit.

I didn't realize loot does not respawn if a player entity has it in their possession? It doesn't seem very rewarding that nothing useful is ever present at a heli crash due to it being in the possession of a player that could, for all anyone knows, have uninstalled the game 3 weeks ago.

Side note: These high-grade loot locations should have a high risk/reward factor and if they spawned loot more often would be highly contested. The fact that players will be fighting there would reduce the likelihood of the high-grade loot being distributed throughout the player base in large quantities.

Hello hdonald and thank you for the report.
We have tested this thoroughly but unfortunately we were unable to reproduce the issue you have described. Please keep in mind that server events respawn every 60 hours and it is not affected by server restarts.
