Did I imagine it, or are the loot boxes all mixed up now?

★★★ Guide

I remember looting last night and the loot is no longer grouped together like it was. There was armor with the grenades/heals, attachments towards the top, etc. This is on PS4.

You are correct actually, you're not imagining it.

 

I thought that too, figured it might have just been some random, rare visual bug but it's persisted through every game I've had since the patch. It's not too bad to deal with, it does make looting a tiny bit slower now that the loot isn't in neat catagories anymore though. I'm pretty sure it's unintentional and it'll likely get a fix at some point.

It's still categorised for me. Are you on pc? I'm on ps4. Maybe it's a pc thing?

Also on PS4 and I think this was intended and not a bug, I remember hearing in a YouTube video that this was done to make it more difficult to replenish fresh shields from deathboxes during gunfights, if that's true it's a really dumb and unnecessary move because if someone has the brains to look for fresh armour instead of abandoning your team and running away to heal or worse, continuing to fight without healing at all, then they shouldn't be punished like this. It already cost me a match the first time I encountered the change where I killed a guy with lv2 armour and wanted to pick it up before his teammates showed up because I didn't have any health kits and instinctively went towards where the shield used to be only to pick something else up and die in the process while using the painfully slow scroll speed to find the armour I was looking for. Really hope they revert this soon.

I didn't twigg to this until my 4th or 5th kill. I was thinking "these players didn't have armour?"....... It was lower in the backpack lol. I was doing this quick in between fire fights so wasn't looting the whole backpack, just looking for fresh armour.

 

Now I know, it's not an issue for me tbh.

 

I'm on PS4 also.
