I just wished they ditched the entire aspect of pipe weapons. They look like shit, they're useless pass the first few levels, their modifications barely change anything, and their value is too low to be of any use while bartering. They're essentially the first weapon you get in an MMO - completely unneeded pass the tutorial, which in this case already gave you one of the better weapons in the game from the very start, so what was the point? They could've literally taken the weapons off New Vegas, brushed it up with a newer texture, slapped it into the game, and I wouldn't mind in the least. New Vegas didn't have the greatest looking, greatest sounding guns in the history of shooters, but it didn't need to. They were basic conventional firearms that filled the space and that was the important part - looking like something people would actually use in real-life. At least the energy weapons had the excuse of being, well, energy weapons. The pipe pistol could've been replaced by any real-life pistol inserted into the game with the least amount of effort and it still would've been better. The most asinine part for me came when the magazines in the game outright stated that pipe weapons existed before the war as homemade makeshift firearms. I'm not even going to try and justify that, you can all figure out for yourself why that's stupid.
