I think I brought this up twice before but I can't remember where.
You know how Gnaw weedlings have a bar that tells when they expire?
Can you add such a bar to health pack drops from:
- Lonestar's bull
- Yuri's mine
- Ted's air strike
- etc.

Only problem with that is if you have mini health drops from that Cocoon nectar upgrade or Yuri's health drop paired with carpet bombs. A bar for each of those little drops might feel cluttered.

Add timer to static health packs from the map that tells when it will reappear after it was taken.

Player picks healthpack up, it grays out and gets a recharge bar above it. bar fills up, healthpack respawns. Could work. +1

I propose instead of a timer, have the health packs flash more and more frequently when they're about to expire.

Could also work. Spawned medkits really need to show when they're going to expire.

Just give them a circular bar like Dizzy's clone has that winds down to expiry.

It could even be team-coloured too, so we can get rid of that vomit-inducing snare effect that blends into the background like a sand castle blends into a tidal wave.
