This is great news.
Yeah, this should be good for the long-term health of the game. It's a fun game but like most FPS's their Steam player numbers have continued to drop since it launched.
Fun game, but could easily be improved by getting rid of aim down sites and adding alt fire.
Hmm, but half the game is about customizing your weapons to do exactly what you want, so you just make your loadout with the exact firing/projectile types you like and switch weapons. With alt firing modes I think a lot of players usually only used the one mode they prefer.
Plus, part of the customization includes adding sights, scopes, etc. and I know I used sights all the time on my medium range guns.
