The developer listens to the community
The change introduced last year, whereby loadout drops appear automatically and with some delay in the second and sixth circles, drew a lot of criticism from the community and even caused some players to hang up the shooter . Raven Software previously addressed the negative reactions to the game mechanics change in a January 11 tweet.
It’s a multi-faceted topic that’s being looked at from multiple angles by the team as we move through all of the Caldera experience commentary so far.

Concerning only the Battle Royale zone
This change, however, only affects the Battle Royale mode and not Vanguard Royale. According to the developers, the unpopular deferred drops will continue to exist in Vanguard Royale. It is unclear if or when these will also be changed.
