Personally, i feel this game will be played better without the use of guns.
they hit 2 hard, regardless of the redic reload times.
ammo should have been implemented and be stupid expensive or rare.
i suggest to avoid running more then 1 char on gunpowder as in the BB, having 2 doods even, annihilated most of the competition, and made the game, even on hard, 2 easy.
obviously positioning and skill usage mixed in, but when u get the hang of stuff, way way way tooo deadly.
maaaaybe as the game gets higher levels it will scale, but it seems that the damage these weapons put out, is ... wooooo!
