Fortnite is a very fast paced game and players need to be able to loot quickly to avoid being killed. However, there have been many times when looting enemies that have been killed has resulted in the loot being clumped together, making it harder to pick up items you actually want. There are also times when players want to be only pick up enough stackable to fill one inventory slot but end up swapping their weapon they currently have equipped when looting if there are more than the max per inventory slot on the floor. Even though this last issue can be resolved by equipping the Harvesting Tool and then looting to ensure only one inventory slot gets maxed if the item is already in the players inventory, Reddit user Sora26 has thought of a concept that will help players to loot quicker:
Auto Pickup Higher Weapon Rarity
As mentioned in the post, players would automatically pick up weapons that were of higher rarity, but only if the same gun with a higher rarity was on the floor. There would be no reason for a player to not want a better rarity in the exact same weapon and this will definitely speed up loot and avoid picking up items by mistake.
Auto Pickup Quantity Items
Items such as Bandages, Med Kits, Grenades, etc. can be stacked in higher quantities that the quantities they are found in. If players were to pick up and item, of course they would want to max out the quantity they could hold and so having this feature would speed up the looting process and avoid picking up extra and dropping an item by accident.
As previously mentioned, It could be argued that equipping the Harvesting Tool before picking up these stackable items is the way to avoid these issues and so the auto pickup for these types of items may be unnecessary.
This could be a toggleable feature where players are able to choose if they want this or not by turning it on/off in the settings.
What do you guys think of this concept? Does it take away from what a Battle Royale game is meant to be or do you think this is needed? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
