I was browsing the ND Blog a few minutes ago, and one comment of Eric-ND's (no, it's not fadi, his PSN was red in color) that got my attention.
Someone asked ND on page 2 of this blog post:
Hyphentwelve: Does he have his own character gun(s)?
Eric-ND: Yes he does!
Does that mean we're getting new character weapons with different mod combinations? I'm not sure. But it looks like it. Looking forward to more 1.13 news.
Just thought I'd share this with y'all as I was bored of all the threads on the first page.
