>best weapon in the game has a shitty design
>all the cool looking ones have low level stats

>Game allows you to substitute another weapon's appearance but retain the original weapon's stats
>Wide variety of weapons at your disposal
>Extremely broad degree of class variety
>The only efficient or reasonable way to play it is with a sword/shield or a standard rifle, because every other setup is horribly mangled for the sake of "balance"
>best weapon in the game
>it's a pink sword that flaps around like a dildo
