Auto Collect Is A Burden, Not A Perk
In its current state, it is a burden and not an asset. The simple fact that auto collect prioritizes equipment over sending a runner to the bloodpost, or executing in bloodmode is far and away enough to never take this perk. The first game I played w/ auto collect - I could not execute a runner in bloodmode before a support res arrowed b/c my auto collect is trying to grab the nearest blueberry.
Maybe disable autocollect near downed runners, or have a toggle on/ off hotkey for auto collect. I'm sure you all are probably working on a fix, but just in case this somehow slipped through the cracks, I thought I would make a post.
