QoL suggestion, lock item you are looting

★★★★★ Pro

So it keeps happening that I finally find a first shield battery, and while i'm trying to switch it out for another item/ammo stack, your loot$&@#+ squadmate snags it from under your nose.

 

Can items please become locked for about 3 to 5 seconds while you're trying to swap it with something?

★ Guide

if you switch it for another item then you don't need it anymore, locking it for a efw secs would be a terrible idea

No, I mean lock the item you're trying to pick up, not whatever you discard.

@Wingmannedbro I have had this issue a lot. Trying to pick up ammo or some shields because I am low on one or the other and than a teammate with extra space decided to swoop it for themselves. Horrible

Which is why I now drop some loot beforehand while running to a deathbox so that I can pick up whatever I need fast.
