During the stress tests on Aug. 23/24 there were screenshots documented of police car/heli crash sites on the PC servers, in addition to mosin spawns changing to civilian houses and shotguns spawning.
While playing this weekend (racked near 40 hours of playtime this weekend) I could not find a single shotgun after searching various western off coast towns. No buckshot ammo or hearing any distinct shotgun sounds.
As for heli crashes, obviously In their rare nature I was not expecting a high chance to come across one. Fair enough I could have been unlucky but NOBODY in the PC community reported seeing a crash site or a SVD apart from their magazine spawns.
There has been plenty of documented sights of heli crash sites on Xbox, even the SVD and shotguns being frequent finds.

I've been speculating that features on the PC server have been toggled off and have not been enabled again, for whatever reason.
This would mean that the xbox platform technically has more content than the PC servers which is rather disheartening. All playtime was on the NORTHEAST stress test servers.
