title says it all. What does the weight in the item collection tag do? I mean, does it make a difference if the weight is 1 or 100 or 10000?

Its how the changing item collections work.
If you have that item collection with a flamethrower set to 50 and a sniper set to 50, the pickup will change between the two, so a 50% chance either would spawn.
I presume that is how the changing powerup in the center of bloodgulch works.
Maybe this is done with perms too though, i have never looked too far into it.

I see, so basicly if you only have 1 weapon, the weight doesn't matter?

if you have only one weapon, just set the weight to 100.
Setting it to anything lower can cause the weapon to not appear ingame.

I see, I've been using like, 10, and 60, but it still appeared, thanks for the info though. What if I had 2 item collection perms, i set one to 100 and the other to 100 as well?
