I figure by this time next year IO developers will probably spill the beans on why so many awkward changes happened.
Camo guns are silly. They even clash with 47's character model. He's been shooting people for a long time. We as players learn throughout the games he spends a ton of money on his own firearms. Way more than even really necessary. Because he just wants perfection. An extension of his own character.
A random glock clone with an extended magazine dropped in an urban camo paint bucket doesn't scream perfection even if it is the company's slogan. Lol.
I see 47 without gloves or dual Silverballers as out of character. He's not James Bond. He's a clone who is extremely serious about his profession. As such, he dresses and equips himself with what are his best tools.
IO doesn't completely feel that way anymore and that's fine. But they shouldn't be surprised when fans like you and I are not mad, just disappointed. But there's always soon in the coming weeks right?
