It's too late now of course, and that's alright. I think there should be an automatic pistol in the upcoming Metro Last Light. I don't think there will be, and it's certainly too late to add it now, but still, hypothetically, it would've been cool.
First of all, I want to say I am looking forward to Metro Last Light and am in no way disappointed by the absence of an automatic pistol.
Now, that aside, I hold this opinion primarily because it was included in the book. Hunter was armed with a stechkin automatic pistol with, if I remember correctly, a silencer, stock, and laser sight. I just always thought those attachments perfect for a Metro game, you know? Ah well. At least they have the semi automatic pistol.
Besides, gameplay-wise, an automatic pistol may end up being overpowered.
So, what do you think? Hypothetically, would it have been a good thing if the stechkin was made available Metro Last Light? Or was 4A Games wise not to include it in the game?
