My character in Fallen Earth, Syp, is a Tech pistoleer, and as such, I’m diligently working on ballistics and geology as two of my main tradeskills. Fallen Earth starts ranged weapon users out with kind of pathetic versions of what they’ll eventually achieve — rifle users get crossbows, and pistoleers get zip guns (modified paint guns). While I can throw out decent dps with my dual zip guns, the weak *pfft-pfft-pfft* of the gas-powered weapons just don’t convey the weight of a real gunslinger.
So I really, really can’t wait until I obtain a pair of revolvers, the next step up the pistol chain. Having recently traveled to Oilville, I saw these guns available for purchase in the store — for a whopping 1900 chips apiece. I only have 3900 chips total, a decent amount for the early game, but buying these guns (nevermind ammo that I can’t craft yet and would have to purchase) would just about wipe me out.
Because of that, I’m going to have to swallow my impulsive instant gratification and wait a bit until I can craft myself a pair, a la Roland, Eddie and Suzie (and Jake). On that day, I too will become a true gunslinger.
