A byproduct of players dropping all gear as loot upon death is that many more players are now choosing to run around in the default scrub-looking white suit. Getting a marker to retrieve your corpse or the game persisting it through a full death isn’t 100% reliable.
Star Citizen Alpha 3.17 is turning players into little Loot Goblins. Those who are inclined now have multiple avenues of collecting loot. And not all of them require completing formal missions. I’ve even joined in on the fun by scouring nearby outposts when I’m traversing a moon while mining or as it’s convenient when I’m in transit.
You don’t hear much from Star Citizen backers about the stealth bomber, the Aegis Eclipse. I suppose it makes sense given that it’s a 3-hit wonder, being that it only carries three torpedoes. However, the beauty of that payload is that they are size 9 ARGOS IX torpedoes that use Crosssection signal tracking, giving them a high degree of accuracy at damaging a single target.
