  1. My apologies, eurobucks – slang for the euro.

  2. Hey, great to see people playing Cyberpunk!

    The price given for guns and ammo strike me as odd, though. While 1300 is right on for, say, a solid pistol with a smartlink, that seems a lot for an average pistol. And if pistols really have become that expensive, are polymer one-shots popular now? Just my two eurocents.

  3. The above was posted by Faceless Solo, and then idiotically mistakenly deleted by me. Note to self: never deal with comments before caffeine ><

    Anyhow, my reply: Hey, Faceless Solo! A solid 9mm pistol in 2010 averages $700 or more, depending on model, etc. so it’s not outrageous to think the price comes close to doubling in 20 years, especially given the effects of runaway inflation.

    Polymer one-shots have not been popular with players because they are, well, one shots P
