Regardless of how tempting looting is, you should never loot when you’re exposed. You’re left vulnerable to your enemies when looting, especially when it’s an open area. Some opponents even wait for players to come to an open ground to loot and then kill them. Instead of falling prey to the tactics, ensure that you’ve got enough cover to loot in relative peace. This will save you plenty of headaches and the need to keep checking over your shoulder. Sometimes, loot just isn’t worth the hassle.
