    This perk/cheatcode will allow the killer of someone to get all that persons money and pick up all/a portion of their loot. For longer distance pvp like sniping, you reap little to no rewards due to how hard it is to get the loot. Just an idea, don't hate me for it! Feedback down below!

    No, it's too p2w and would reduce the flow of gear that is healthy for gtm.

    no. I think this is very dumb. Just like Owen said very p2w but maybe make a few changes such as there is an 15% of the loot comes to you but the cheatcode/perk would only work for 50+ blocks.

    Hello there,

    First of all, i wanted to thank you for taking the time to create this suggestion. Though, i personally think this is not worth the development time, it will take. Right now, we only have one developer, who has to handle the entire server on his own, which makes big projects like this almost impossible to actually spend time on. Though, we will keep this one in mind for in the future ;)

    Thanks again!

    Yours sincerely,

    DieHeldernaar

    I am not sure how I feel about this. It will be very, very unfair for players that do not have this ´cheatcode´.

    I'm sure you could make a "mod" for this.

    I feel that this is not good in a way due to new players finally getting a kill but not being able to pick it all up. It would kill GTM and would as owen said be too p2w maybe set it so that only lootsweeping isn't possible for 20 or 30 seconds so that people don't run up and grab something you got like 4 miniguns and a jp kat... its happened to me don't judge.

    Exactly, you could mod your client to pick up items in a bigger area.

    Just like you can mod your client to track other players, automaticly aim, and hit them.

    I think this would completely disrupt GTM’s mechanic and would probably result in a terrible climax for pvp imo (and would also be terribly p2w)

    Btw you can’t a mod a client to pick up items in a larger radius (unless it’s in a singleplayer world) because the items are server-side.

    I'm sure it's possible, but maybe only on vanilla/survival servers because they have normal items.

    Idrk, i just think there could be a way. Either way it would be 100% cheating and you would be banned real quick.

    Yeah I wasn't really intending a p2w aspect, maybe with godfather (is it really worth 5 mil? Most don't use homing launchers and just get it for the minigun) Maybe the money from a kill is given to the player instead of dropping. I understand the their is only one dev (what happened to the other?) Thanks for taking time to give suggestions

    That’s a great idea! Thanks for all the feedback! I’m trying to push more ideas to circulate, good or bad to see what people think

    I think its dumb, as newer less rich players sometimes can RELY on snipers sniping people, and they just yoink the gear
