i think would be nice if Repair Terminal had an extra window where players could drag and drop Universal Ammo stack to be used to repair gear instead of taking from ped card.

Loads of Melee users would support this idea, if it would work with Shrapnel, but would hate to lose another 0,5%.

It could only work if the item was not tradable temporarily until that repaired part was decayed out.
You are still locking peds up and forcing another ped cycle, which is what MA wants

They should just create a script that will re-balance all their existing melee weapons that currently doesn't use UA as ammo to use it. Maintaining same amount of total usages in each weapon except that it will be able to use UA. Every melee user would be happy and it would make more sense since some melee weapons have it and others doesn't where's the logic in that?

Suggested this a while ago here, the ensuing discussion might help:


There are some considerations regarding balancing but we never reached a conclusion, lacking inside information or any kind of feedback re. the original submission via support. I still think this would be good, with the main argument that melee users are at a disadvantage because of conversion rates in deposits. Some more melee weapons with ammo consumption have been introduced since, but hardly for the masses.

UA is good for MA, you need to spend it at 95-98% tt return, they win E V E R Y time

Well we still sale it and someone converts it. But main problem is when you decide to open boxes its so stupid that you have to use another weapon/mine to burn UA.

Lootable space is still going strong so I would have to take alinas side here. They must be for banging their head in the wall for 10years + expecting another result with the same setup :p
