Future Plans

  • Many more weapons (dual uzis, railgun, minigun, etc.)
  • Other things 100% decided on pure whimsy
  • Proper skill icons? (unlikely given just how many weapons there are.)
  • Unique monster-themed weapon drops (templar minigun, scav cannon, etc.)
  • More mod crosscompat
  • Unique secondary skills for each weapon; these are difficult to come up with, so feel free to hit me with any ideas!

Known Issues

  • Some weapons are missing icons or descriptions for their abilities
  • Goat Hoof display is backwards
  • Incompatibility with MirroredStages
