Default Pilot Survival

Recently, I was a helicopter pilot and was shot down and lived. (Thank you .86 ) After I got out i was behind enemy lines and they were looking for me. I find it troubling that the Pilots don't get at least a knife.

Pilots in reality are equipped with basic survival knives, why not put it in PR?

There are several threads about this. But when you are shot down behind enemy lines, your objective should be to AVOID the enemy as much as possible and try to get to a safe extraction point.

How about making it so they have to "capture" the pilot... i really doubt they'd kill a pilot on sight =/

Pilots would just suicide. It would be a lot easier than walking all the way to base. I do like the idea of a pilot requiring weapons to survive but they would rarely need it. There has to be consequences of a pilot's death and I say the best consequence for a pilot's death is a much longer spawn time.

If their aircraft goes down, it won't come up for another 5+ minutes, and they are just going to sit at their base and wait so why not just give them a 5 minute spawn time. Plus, this would prevent noob pilots from repeatedly getting helicopters and crashing them. Thus, a pilot with a longer spawning time would want to survive more and instead of suiciding, they might actually try to get back to base, the realistic way.

imo they should get a knife and their pistol back.
