Healing Yourself While Downed

    Hey I've always wondered, why we can't use our health recovery items while in the downed state? Like I understand that might take away from the support classes a bit, but considering it's a 1-use item anyways (and half the time, especially for Orks, you don't have a Dok nearby). It's nowhere near game-breaking or even unbalancing. Plus you're already crawling around, your character can obviously use their arms somewhat. Why can't they grab the item and use it?

    This already got talked about before. Same thing applies then as now. Self rezzing would be absurd in certain situations. Imagine if all the heavies at Agnathio B could pick themselves up.

    All of once? Frankly I doubt I'd find a big enough difference, especially since the vast majority of heavies stick with ammo bundles instead of health restoration items.

    I agree, given that most players spend a curing item long before they are dead this feature wouldnt be OP. It makes sense - if you're still able to crawl then you have enough blood to use healing

    I think it would alter the balance between the Cure Wargear and the extra ammo slightly too much. You could increase the price, perhaps, or have one that can be used from a Downed state which costs more.

    I would be okay with a slight LP increase due to it's increased utility. That or have the Ammo Bundle also restore grenades to compensate? Nahhh, too powerful probably (though much desired). So I'd stick with an option for a more pricey version for the added ability to heal while downed.

  7. Cuuld 'ave a bigga' ammo pack wut also restores grenades in da same way ye cuuld 'ave a more easily usable healin' kit wut can be used whoil down each wut costs more LP

    Da way I see it a self heal whoil down wuuld be used most toims by blokes wut get downed by ranged and left alone. Most toims in melee when yer downed ye etitha' get killed before he switches target, ye get killed in da melee crossfire, er sum random ranged blokes shoots ye dead while da foight continues

    the point of it is encouraging teamplay

    Understandable, but frankly it doesn't exactly work terribly well and there are much better ways to encourage teamplay than make it impossible to save your own life.

    It's not working, I see lots of people downed and no one on their team helps them most of the time.

    So yes, I agree with people should be able to heal themselves when downed if they have the heal consumables. I also think the SM and Ork healers should also be able to toss out their heal grenades and/or use their healing consumables on themselves when downed as well.
