    Default make boltok and gorgon starting weapons

    i think it would be interesting if

    cog characters started with cog weapons

    lancer/retro
    gnasher
    snub

    locust characters started with locust weapons

    hammerburst
    sawed off
    boltok/gorgon

    this would add extra dynamic to matches
    encourage players to use more weapons instead of relying on a preferred set up
    make playing as a cog different than playing as locust
    the pistol pick up spawns could then be replaced with different weapons

    sawed off is not locust specific i know, but it does suit their character a lot more in my opinion
    alternatively both cog/locust could start with gnasher and the sawed off could become a power weapon pick up (replacing some of the boltok/gorgon pick ups perhaps)

    While I love the idea of having a boltok every round I play ( oh the destruction I would lay), there are some glaring balancing issues that will prevent this from happening.

    A boltok in a veterans' hands = mini longshot.

    If in the right hands, a Boltok pistol can truely be a 'power weapon'

    I don't think I'd like that idea.

    the locust pistols are far superior to the snub. Also the Sawed off isn't a locust weapon, it's a stranded weapon

    This brings up an interesting question: who created the gnasher? COG or Locust, same for the boltok and frags

    They've confirmed that the boltok is indeed a locust weapon

    i always thought the boltok suited cog better, gorgon definitely looked locust, i dont care what anyone says but boltok is cog, lore or not
