  • Freaking awesome!!! They are killing modded weapons/items!!!! Glorious day!

    Now I can play the game on xbox live without losers who feel they have to cheat. It twice caused my game to crash because they made too many items drop and/or created too many weapon particles. Also, the game will play as it's meant to! Awesome. Awesome gameplay, characters and weapons. Not
    overly powerful weapons/items that n00bs think they need but only make the game too easy.

    Also, never noticed an issue with bombadier. But great to hear. And great DLC addon. insta buy!
