Why is there a cooldown? The Gens are blocked for 16 seconds which we all know is nothing. Also the requirement is picking up a Survivor meaning you need to win a chase which in itself is a huge requirement, the 60 second cooldown hurts this perk.
I know you're afraid that it can be spammed but listen to yourself, picking up a downed Survivor, if you can SPAM picking up a DOWNED survivor then the team isn't working on Gens because they're rushing the hook. The ONLY way this perk can be spammed is if the team is absolute garbage and loses in the process, they'll ALL be downed and then they lose who cares if they can't do a Gen, they're dead. The cooldown requirement is redundant and hurts the perk take it off please.
Everyone, please get in here and explain this because it should be obvious how damning this cooldown is, 60 COOLDOWN for 16 SECONDS of blocked Gens, LITTLE REWARD for maximum effort all because of this cooldown.
Hey I hit someone and picked em up, blocked Gens yay. 16 seconds later you get into a chase and then known them down OH NO it hasn't been a minute it's been 30 seconds. That's 30 seconds of Gen repairs but nah man you need to wait 30 more seconds to block the Gens NO ONE IS WORKING ON for 16 seconds. Are you going to pick him up? You gonna wait? Should have brought BBQ & Chili because you thought this perk was going to be useful lol
