Why do weapons stick around for so long?
I haven't seen this discussion so maybe I missed it, but it seems like the Marine weapons stick around for far to long. I just started playing a few games last night and something that I noticed was that the marine weapons didn't really seem to despawn. In my case I was given a grenade launcher which I was using in unison with another marine trying to sneak in and do damage to a hive. (I also think the maps are too small, but I still need to play more games to tell). I did something dumb and died near the hive. I then ran back towards the hive, killed a gorge, repaired an electrical node, killed some cysts and still had time to find the grenade launcher and pick it up. This seems like a long time for a weapon timer to still be active. I feel a bit bad for the aliens as when they die their dead, when I drop my weapon its fine cause I can go pick it up again?
