Not sure about weapon drops. The devs were real interested in a package drop of partial ammo/health/armor. They already have a really realistic badass weapon drop system in Black Dawn singleplayer demo from 5 years ago. The weapon more or less drops like Call of Duty. However, a SBH with Ramjet was really frowned upon in original Ren, and most servers scripted SBH unable to pick up weapons or the server bot removes their weapon on pickup.

It WAS a good balance modifier for when infantry structure was destroyed and free infantry got rekt by paid for infantry (read:ramjet), at least a lucky kill can score a free character a single shot ramjet to try to help his team stave off the swarms of air and snipers. But now, we have marksman and heavy pistol and shit, so we don't have to have advanced weapon pickups to balance.

Idk. If a weapon was allowed to be picked up, cost would be worthless as later in the game the same weapons could keep dropping, i could see making a weapon pickup only 1 clip of ammo and not refill as a sidearm, that would be badass. Including repairgun. Maybe make it always default back to handgun when a secondary pickup depletes.

That sounds badass and mildly balanced. The devs wouldnt need to spend time making it, as much as they would adding on to their old hooks already coded in but disabled,

The "popular" server owner dictated they wouldn't want it. Call me when they all die and Jelly can come back.

who said they dont want to try it??

o.O thought it was never finished. Personally id be happy to try weapon drops and see what happens.
