Well, don't look too pleased to see me or anything
OK, so I got caught by one of the meanest traps the game throws at you in the early stages (hah! It's not early anymore!). The waves of bandits in that vehicle yard fight are notoriously brutal to even the casual player in the unmodded version of the game. The power of the guns in this thing does give you a certain confidence, particularly when you appear to be doing alright. Stupid confidence is still confidence.
There's also something just not right about turning your back on people trying to kill you. Frankly I blame whoever put our arms on backwards. More eyes wouldn't hurt either.
