no im saying that after he plays for a year or so, he will mostly likely want to upgrade his gun to compete with the other upgraded guns. these upgrades could potentially cost a lot
as for your point about buying a clone and upgrading it. i dont think that is necessarily a good point. you upgrade a clone to the same levels as the real deal, and the non-clone will outperform every time.
