Circel icons on supply boxes should be triangels instead, to make it less confusing

I have seen many people t-bag supply boxes already since the icon on the boxes are marked with circle icon in the game and on the minimap.

It would be easy solution to just change the icon to a triangel and take away the smaler triangel which you don't see if you aint looking down on the box. The triangle is also really small and hasn't popping colors.

 

This would make it very easy for people to understand that you need to run up to the box and press triangle.

 

Since there isn't similar UI in the game and the circle isn't describing what kind of object it is this should be a quick fix on a small problem.

EDIT: I noticed that the UI in singelplayer transforms to a triangel in a very clean way to handle this.  So why isn't the UI consistent in both singleplayer and multiplayer?

People will learn in a few days, possibly hours of playing the game. Maybe people were just being the typical online player they were when they started to t-bag the box?

I haven't made that connection. I think it's fine the way it is.

People will learn overtime but it would definitly be cleaner UI and more impressive design
