- Spawn Rate -

Spawn Rate on an attachment determines the maximum number an attachment can be found on a vanilla DayZ server. The higher the Spawn Rate, the more likely you are to find this attachment in the loot location it spawns. For example, if the Spawn Rate stat for an item is 5, 5 of that item at a maximum will spawn on a standard DayZ server. If the Spawn Rate is 0, it means it doesn't spawn and is acquired by crafting it, spawning it with admin tools or by combining it with another item.
