Obv, just another balance suggestion by my part.
Fire-rate of starting pistol could be nerfed. I’m fine with keeping the amount of zombies the same, but taking away the reliability of the starting pistol is something I feel would help this gamemode. It’s the weapon you have to rely on when you don’t have a pickup. Keep in mind you can still upgrade the damage of guns. I think this nerf would improve the gameplay and make the game a bit more challenging without making changes to the core of the gamemode.
