I have checked loot drops in NW and SW air fields and all loot from military tents is now gone.
- Legacy ID
2, Travel to military tents in various locations.
3, No loot.
During testing I've restarted a server to reload loot to confirm that this infact is happening. The normal drops from 114008 from military tents are now gone.
Some military structures still spawn loot like the barracks, encampments, and military prisons, and to some extent hangars.
Don´t forget that this is not only a Problem in Balota. Tents near the NWAF are without loot, too. For me there is at the moment no reason to visit NWAF simplay because it is not worth the risk. I hope they will fix this and improve the whole item spawn because some things like long range scopes are currently nearly untraceable.
Dean has clearly stated that this is a known issue and is something that is being actively looked into...but that doesn't mean that the Balota tents will stay. There is a chance that the entire section will be replaced/etc...depending on what the Devs think will benefit the community the most.
@fr3nchy: there are still loot tables for those areas, and there are spawn points, but they aren't spawning *anything* in the Balota tent area. The Balota airfield seems fine though. Dean has recognized this issue, and the Devs are looking into what course of action to take. This is based off of the release notes for the latest version in the Experimental branch, and off of Dean's post in Reddit.
guys, guys ... you need to read the news

- Number of backpacks spawning lowered
- Number of .357 Pythons spawning lowered.
- Number of M4A1s spawning lowered
I have seen many clips for M4 as well as attachments tho
+1 to anyone calling this BS. The DayZ Dev group intentionally pushed spawns out to the East coast of the map to spread things out a bit and not make Balota such a hot spot...but then to take away *all* the loot ... that's ridiculous. Just for grins and giggles I have hung out around Balota for 5 days now to see if *anything* spawns in/around the tents... nothing. Not even a rotten kiwi. I've found plenty of Zeds...so fun target practice...but no loot for such a large militarized area is awkward at best.
If intended, this is crap.
Spawning nothing in military tents, gets people to hop servers in order to loot other military facilities. This means that server regulars don't find any loot until server restart.
Sorry, but this is really bullshit.
I don't know if they will leave the tents empty, but it would be great to find some corpses you can loot or something, so you can enter the tent to try to find something, even basic supplies.
i hope its intended... the amount of military loot found in these locations was (imho) ridiculous anyway. i would assume that military installations would have been picked clean within minutes of any sort end of the world scenario, especially one like a zombie uprising. to be able to find loot there, and in the quantities we used to be able to, just never jived for me.
Maybe it's totally intended... And I think this is. To stop people rushing Balota or others military Airfields going into theses tents going full stuff+armored+supply in less than 1 hour...
Same here, also noticed nothing spawning in the high-rises and two story buildings with steps, for example the ones near the north-west hospital in cherno. Nothing was spawning in wooden floored military tents in the last build as well as log cabin houses and a few other places. These places still do not spawn loot.
Can also confirm this is happening. All military tents don't spawn loot. Also, many houses are also not spawning loot. Sometimes it's almost a ghost town. All this after a server restart.
Possibly related to report 8100: No loot is appearing in tents, certain houses, or around vehicles.
Also maybe related to 8809: "Missing" loot in houses is sometimes unreachable below the floor - could this be the case for tents or vehicles?
How do you know it just wasn't supposed to be there, at least in the ridiculous amount that it was, from the very beginning? I think it's hilarious that people are pissed about something that was obviously wrong from the start. In my opinion this issue has actually been fixed by getting rid of it.
What I meant is there was WAY to much military loot spawning in those tents at the beginning. I haven't had any trouble finding my pristine ACOGs. You just have to actually play the game and look around the map for them now. A ton of military gear still spawns at NWAF.
Will a dev please acknowledge this issue so it is not missed in the "to be fixed list".
This includes the smaller barns, sheds, vehicles (around vehicles, etc), deer stands....
With this limitation to the high(er) end loot areas it is just making the already dangerous places, such as, barracks, hangers and prisons a bit like shooting ducks in a barrel.
