IKR? We were a wee bit delayed on this update. But hopefully you'll enjoy it; Rafa's lasers are really sweet, particularly if you get some of the weapon modifier trash items, like the "bouncy shots" one and the multi-bullet one, both of which stack (picture multiple refracting beams bouncing off all the walls; it's pretty sweet, like one of those laser security traps you see in spy movies, haha.)
