It would be great if we could access all of the items that are currently available in the shop while in the Psykhanium meat grinder instance. This would allow users to ‘trail run’ a weapon before they commit to purchasing it.
Since damage numbers are already displayed while in the training instance, this would allow for easier comparison between weapons. This would also act as a stop-gap while development of the revised stat UI is being worked on.
It is pretty disappointing when you spend several mission’s worth of gold on a weapon that you don’t like. I’ve even purchases weapons thinking that they were a straight upgrade just to release later that it is a different ‘mark’ revision and thus behaves differently.
