I noticed that during ranked matches the quick respawn from Tacticooler is disabled and it is kinda exposing you to the enemy team when you want to get a drink. This ult is very great in classic matches but definetely not SS in rank matches imo

Great question! After doing some testing and looking into it, the gear ability Special Power Up extends the duration of each drink an additional 20%. With one Special Power Up equipped, it extends the duration of the drink from 15 seconds to 18 seconds!
