Andy's best friend
Piercing Weapon: superior (rank 2)
- Ranged Attack
TUTORIAL MISSION: Cut Scene 1
"Well, Andy, I knew you'd come back someday." The man limped out from behind the counter of the gun shop and turned his sign from "open" to "closed", and then disappeared into a back room for a moment. He returned with a cardboard box and handed it to Andy. Andy grimly smiled as he opened the box and pulled out a hefty assault rifle. "I made the modifications you asked for. Extra large mags, flash suppressor, full auto, burst mode, attachment rails if you ever want extra goodies. You know, legally, I can't sell this kind of weapon in any of the fifty states or the District of Columbia, but I guess since it was yours to begin with, it's not really selling it, is it?"
Marksman: standard (rank 1)
TUTORIAL MISSION: Shooting Range
"Follow me back to the range." Andy followed the gun shop owner to the back of the store, past a few old pictures of the owner with Andy back in their military days. The door opened to reveal a shooting range, and after the owner put his earphones and glasses on, he handed Andy a magazine. Silhouettes on hangers motored their way back to the end of the range and Andy flipped the safety off on the gun. It didn't take long at all to give a swiss-cheese look to the targets.
"I guess you've been doing more than those ab-crunches on the THUGOMATIC since the last time I saw you. You used to be a shitty shot; now you could actually hit the broad side of a barn without using five damn mags"
What happened to the six pack?
Armor: superior (rank 2)
TUTORIAL MISSION: Cut scene 2
"It's a rougher world out there than the last time you went out", the gun shop owner said. "I haven't seen Joey in forever, and the creeps who got your girl this time probably know how to use their damn guns now. You and I always laughed about how we used to run around the jungle in our jeans and boots, but these days, just like these nights, you gotta bring protection." The owner opened a case and revealed a kevlar vest. "Besides, we all know what your abs look like from the THUGOMATIC infomercials."
Heads Up Display
Danger Sense: standard (rank 1)
"They're sunglasses, right?"
"Damn, Joey, would I keep a pair of damn sunglasses under lock and key? These bitches cost more than a crate of Ray-Bans. It's not much for now, but eventually I'll get you a set that has a full tactical display on the inside of these lenses. At least for now, it'll tell you what direction the incoming spray of lead's coming from, and maybe, just maybe, a little extra information, a half second of warning, might just save your lousy ass."
