Please fix helicopter crashes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In 0.54, I spent probably a total of 100 hours hunting for helicopter crashes and slowly building my character up to a full on heli crash himself (I mean full M4, smersh vest and backpack, M65 field jacket, etc.), and nowadays its just plain boring to find a helicopter crash in experimental. There's the new VSS Vintorez and UMP-45 I would really like to find, but if the helicopter crashes stay in the exact same spots then everyone knows where they are and chances of finding loot there are slim to none. If I did manage to find something rare at one of the heli crashes, then it wouldn't even feel successful because it's almost like finding an SVD in a barracks or something. Helicopter crashes aren't supposed to be a static loot spot like military buildings, and when they are it's just boring. I love spending hours looking for a helicopter crash and being rewarded by insanely awesome loot.


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Go to NWAF
  2. Look at all 3 of the helicopter crashes there
  3. Be amazed they're all there

4*) Server hop at NWAF
5*) Be amazed they're all there still, exact same spots

Additional Information

The helicopter crashes will be in the same spots, it seems that they are different but there's always 1 UH-1Y (Smoking) heli crash and 2 Mi-8 (non-smoking) heli crashes.
