Greetings, after a discussion on the Reddit about the Grizzly and how it needs a buff to make it viable. I have thought of an idea for an unblacking med item, at this time the grizzly could serve the function. With the increased raid timer a blacked limb means time to extract with a lot of time remaining in most cases. I think that a 2x2 item that takes 15 seconds, gives pain debuff, unblack the limb, restoring to 10 hp, and costing 200. If the grizzly was used it would give 3 unblacked limbs and its current functions. Why I think this is a good idea, the grizzly currently serves no practical purpose, takes a lot of space, expensive and impractical to hotkey. The ability to unblack a limb would make a bad gunfight that you barely win a non-raid ender, and with the current extensions of raid times, the ability to use it would be appreciated. Also with the expense of grizzlies, it would make the Epsolone container a much more viable choice. This change would not affect the morphine meta except for post-battle spam of meds until extraction. A 15-second use would make it impractical for use in combat and adding the pain debuff would either make you use morphine or be completely sure of your safety. The durability uses of 200 was so the grizzly would heal at most 3 limbs which I feel that would be the max something of that size should heal. If you tried to unblack 3 limbs it would take 45 seconds to get them to 10hp each then add on the time for Ifaks or Salewas to max hp you would be out of combat for 2 minutes in a defensive posture. With the plans to slow down combat in EfT this seems acceptable. If this still seems unbalanced, an additional suggestion comes to mind when you use this unblackening grizzly or other item that dose this it takes 10hp or so off the top of that limbs health for the remainder of the raid instead of the current pill popping medkit spam. When the medical animations are in effect the unblacking grizzly would be an even better fit. I had a discussion on the Tarkov Reddit about this ( https://www.reddit.com/r/EscapefromTarkov/comments/7vs1yw/grizzly_medkit_desperately_needs_a_buff/dturnz0/ ) I would appreciate your opinions on this and Thank you for your time.
Currently in the game you can use medical item such as the grizzly to fix bone damage while also not using any of the percentage of the grizzly (as long as the limbs only broken and not damaged) making splints, pain killers and morphine less useful/valuable. My suggestion is to make each MedKit (Grizzly, Selewa, IFAX, Car etc.) into a container that holds items such as bandages, morphine, painkillers etc., restoring the need to loot any and all medical items even if you have the grizzly; It does not have to be used differently than it is now (click and drag to the limb in need), and should show a status of how many of each item is in said MedKit
