Occasionally, you have to drive through a horde of monsters and, while running over them, they leave behind valuable equipment. However, stepping out of your vehicle can mean certain death when you’re surrounded by shockers and brutes. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use a robotic arm to pick up the best object you find off of the ground, without leaving the safety of your vehicle’s steel steel plating? Perhaps by adjusting a garbage truck’s attachments, this might be possible.
This idea comes as an offshoot of the bad ideas thread as a way of popping in and out of the nightmare zone without risking your own hide every turn you go near it.
