@Servius the problem with restricing this and the comparison you made have very large differences. Thermal detonators can't kill b2's with one throw. They would need multiple to kill even a group of 4-6 b2's
The firepuncher has a mag of 25 shots, 10 of them (2 shots because they take 5 per shot) can eliminate a group of 25 B2 droids in less than 3 seconds.
I guess as a temporary fix it would suffice, but this definitely needs a fix before EMs get angery from spawning a group of NPCs and coming back 10 seconds later to see it all disappear because a guy with a 600dmg sniper can kill them all while he's snoozing.
Either way, you're doing a great job with the new guns. Take your time on finishing them off. Thanks fellow gamer servius
