well what do ya know, it's actually possible to get a weapon that will one-shot regular enemies at the start of the game.
OP OP OP please nerf OP
also here's some advice for this game, having the full 'roaring pipes' set will make you a unstoppable gibing machine with a burning shotgun!
in fact it was only ever slightly mentioned that this game has random guns. it does! each gun is made up of random parts, and some of those parts will belong to a set. every part will have stat effects on the overall weapon, meaning that you can get some very interesting guns with the right mixture of parts.
like a super-fast firing RPG with enough knock-back to throw a boss across the whole arena!
