Armour griding - boxes worth less as you get stronger?

I'm grinding for armour on Crimon (level 26) as the AI troops kill the red ants on easy for me. I'm playing co-op with Wing Diver (to pick up the boxes) and Ranger.
Ranger is at almost 4000 health. As I understood it, boxes for Ranger are 1:1 so 1 box = 1 point. But I've just grabbed at least 18 boxes, and Ranger's health has only gone up by 9.
Is my understanding incorrect? Or am I now gaining less armour per box because I'm at almost 4000 health?

Nope, no one in 2025 is 1:1.

Fencer 0.58
Ranger/ Air Raider 0.464
Wingdiver 0.232

Don't ask me why they chose those numbers, I have no idea.

If you play off-line split screen with two of the same class it doubles your rate since each crate counts for both, regardless of who picks it up.
