Loot from Aliens atm is very prone to griefing…
You can do all the hard work fighting aliens solo and get the kill, but before you can get close enough to loot the drop somebody else who took no part in fight rushes in to steal it…
But it gets worse, If you do manage to start collecting the loot, they can ram you to push you away, the impact stops them near the loot and they can take it before you can turn around and get back.
What we really need is a exclusive loot system, ie when a container drops, everyone who had a ‘significant’ impact on the fight can loot the container once each.
… if you took part but was not a ‘significant’ impact (ie join late did only tiny bit damage) then you get to loot crate but will get a much smaller reward (maybe few credits).
… If you not contribute at all, you get nothing at all.
This will get rid of the loot griefing from kills.
