When a death box is opened it's a free-4-all. There's times I wish a teammate would let me loot the box from an enemy I killed first at times, but if there's a moment where they need to loot it quickly for more ammo as enemies are approaching it's a fair trade-off.

How would you hotfix this if you had it your way?

@SumT1ng are you referring to when you drop, open and anyone else around you gets first pick because for some odd reason, your legend refuses to grab a gun or any loot?

If so, I've had this problem as well which is why I wait now for the enemy to open the crate first so that I can loot it all before they can see it.

@SumT1ng ah yes, I assume because your character must wait until they can see a weapon to get the option to show up for it.

Which is why others can loot a crate before you, because the only option they have is to grab a gun because the "open crate" option has already been used but not the "pick up loot".

Therefor, best to just wait on enemies to open first, also to note, guns are most likely yo appear on the left side. So stick to that and you'll always grab loot before your enemy.
