Numbers of certain guns in a Server

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • could any one tell me or point me in the right direction to find the number of vss vsd lar that can be in a Server at any one time before they don't spawn nomore ... Also same with m4 an all ak's ... Thank you

  • Short answer: Some items are rare, on purpose, and spawn in limited quantities.

    Long answer:

    All items that spawn have:

    LIFETIME on the ground

    RESTOCK timer until placed into the spawn queue.

    MIN/MAX(NOMINAL) before any respawn is done. Once its at max, no more will spawn . When it hits min, more are put into a queue to spawn in an appropriate place.

    QUANTMIN/MAX are for items with capacity like water bottles, canteens, mags, etc

    Flags to decide what to count (can be IN_CARGO, IN_HOARDER, IN_MAP, IN_PLAYER) Also flags for crafted and DYNAMIC EVENTS (deloot/heli crash)

    Spawn Location - class of buildings/location (Military, Police, Farm, Village, Town, Hunting, School, Industrial, Medic, Firefighter, Prison, Coast)(floor, shelves), and tiers (1,2,3,4)

    Tier 1 is the SE coast and tier 4 is the NW woods. I don't know the exact dividing lines, but you get the idea.

    Gun/MAX/HeliCrash? [Spawn Locations] BK-18(IZH18)/100 [Farm, Town, Village, Hunting - Tier 1,2] BK-133 (MP133) /100 [Police, Farm, Village, Hunting - Tier 1,2,3] CR-61 Skorpion(CZ61)/30 [Police] CR-527(CZ527)/50 [Farm, Village, Hunting - Tier 2,3,4] KA101(AK101)/5 [Military - Tier 4] KA74(AK74)/10 [Military - Tier 2,3,4] KAM(AKM)/10 [Military - Tier 3,4]

    LAR (FAL)/4/Y [Military - Tier4] M4/10 [Military - Tier 3,4] M70 Tundra(Winchester70)/15, [Hunting - Tier 2,3,4]] Mosin/70 [Town, Village, Hunting - Tier 2,3] SG5-K (MP5K)/20 [Military - Tier 1,2] SKS/30 [Military - Tier 2,3] USG-45 (UMP45)/20 [Military - Tier 2,3] VSD (SVD)/4/Y [Military - Tier 4] VSS/3/Y [Military] [I believe the HeliCrash weapons only spawn there, but the loot table entries have other notations I left in for completeness]

    The loot state is not affected by a server restart.  In general, the low end weapons are counted on the ground(which is basically what's spawned at that moment). Some weapons (KA74, KAM, M4A1) are counted in storage/cargo/map, but not players and some (KA101,LAR,VSD/VSS) are counted on players too . It makes them all relatively rare, on purpose. In the new experimental patch ak 101s, a tisy spawn, don't count in stashes so you will always find them there. This is a clever move as it means TISY remains an end game goal and it promotes travel across the map. The best gun is the one you have.
