Reminder for all the alpha players giving feedback: Don't armchair-game-design. Talk about your expectations and how stuff made you feel:

🚫 "Guns should hit 27.3% harder"
✔ "Enemies feel tankier than I expected"
✔ "Guns feel like pea shooters"

Finding something broken every time I look at my old code makes me really nervous about my new code.
