I can't tell if the items that I've been finding out in the wilderness have been respawning or if I'm imagining things. I've been finding a lot of diamonds, fuel, plants, and the like and some of them have their location marked on my map with a number. Does that mean that I can only pick them up once?

What items respawn and how often?

Resources re-spawn every three main missions you do.

This also includes all the rough diamonds around Mother Base so you can harvest all of them again. A little grind but lots of GMP.

  • @IvanSolntsev: I am pretty sure that it does count missions to be whatever mission you do -- so side ops count as missions. If you spend ages free roaming, then nothing will change much. Feb 1, 2016 at 14:37
  • I meant repeating already completed main missions. Feb 1, 2016 at 15:32
  • @IvanSolntsev: yes, repeating a main mission counts as playing a mission. Feb 1, 2016 at 15:37
