1) impossible to drop guns! unless u walk backwards.
2) impossible to pick up guns! unless u already have a gun.
3) impossible to get a rifle at the armory
I pretty much always drop my pistol early game because i would much rather have the speed boost then the gun.
If i die with a good gun when i respawn i will drop all my weapons so i and get the speed to run back and grab that gun before it disappears. Only to find that its impossible to pick up.
Then upon returning to base with out any thing but my knife the weapons i tossed out have disappeared so i go to the armory. Only to find that i cant get a rifle from it. Then i b43 =(
