Indeed the BL and MG chew threw ammo like crazy, which is the very reason why I also, as a gunslinger, used the Tesla Gun. Th BL* required too much strenght for my technologist ("If I had muscles, I would work at a quarry, not become an inventor, dammit!"), the MG was great, powerful, made me cause total destruction during a single round for some time, just until I realised that my precious, nearly lifetime suply of ammo mysteriously disappeared. The TG is also great having a +20 cool factor (what can be more fun than a stempunk lightning gun), yet Droch's Warbringer is superior to every single firearm, being the ultimate Vendigroth technology. * There was a concept to make the Blade launcher fire actual quality daggers, which could be used repeatedly. IIRC, Drog was involved in making this little mod which I surely will try out one day.
