There are more than 500 oil drums in the game. All the oil drums also respawn every 5 minutes so there is an unlimited amount of drums you can get.

There are much more than 500 in the game. Id probably say at least 5,000 in the entire map, and they respawn after about 5 minutes so getting 500 it pretty quick and easy.

There's a ton of drums everywhere. You'll get most of the 500 just driving from camp to camp.

thats alright then i though these were gonna be the hardest of all the collectables i have ever encountered! :p

No they are so easy, and sometimes in a long chain, 1 on its own then a group of 4 then 1, 4 etc etc, (it seemed to work like that for me, and obviously you have to find the chain)

There could possibly be 100-150 in each camp/area.

Even though driving a night sucks in this, it makes the drums glow making it so easy to collect! I think i got 500 before 40 stars?? it is that easy!!!

If there we're only 500 barrels in a game that is supposed to be 5000 square miles, that would just make the achievement damn near impossible.

:woop:Never Knew they respawned. Lo. This will be so easy to get 500 now i suppose :D

There are over 10000 barrels scattered all over the map and they respawn after about 5 minutes So Happy Hunting

By the end of the game, everyone should have in excess of 5000 drums, just getting Vista points and Liveries, you'll get drums by the hundreds...

If you are having trouble finding them in the daytime just go on a hunt at night with a car with really bright lights... They are really obvious then.
