View Full Version : What is the reappear time for the powerup/med/ammo?

I am wondering if any body figured out the time count down
for the ammo/sheild/powerup/med to reappear?
And anybody know the lasting time for the power time.

I think maybe it is 30 sec for the shield/ammo, is this right?

I believe the time for most items is either 60 or 90 seconds. It varies from item to item. The more powerful ones (shieldbelt for example) take longer than things like ammo and health vials.

I believe that health and ammo respawn every 30 seconds. The Shield Belt takes 55-60 seconds as does the Redeemer. The Amp and Keg o' Health take 90 seconds to respawn. BTW, I'm not certain on any of these figures, but you are safe to assume that they are correct for gameplay.
But if you are one of the people that looks at his watch when a power up is picked up, then I would suggest that you could be more effective by having routes in maps that contain all the powerups and pick them up if by chance they are there when you are on your way.

Because I know some good players in
Quake series know exactly when to go
fetch ammo/shield/powerup/med, so maybe
we should take it as good experience
to know the respawn time for items.
I will take some time to measure it out.
