Hahaha! Nice! :)
As disclaimer: You guys decided on the contest winners, and as far as I know, Alex and the team started working on the DLC way before the contest winners had been announced. :)
Also, you can never have enough Mosin skins! <3
Can I ask why? It's a very expensive gun that's unlocked after the Lebel, does fewer than 125 points of damage, and has levering accuracy like a hand cannon. I've been trying to make it work but I just can't. And the ammo is medium, not long. I've tried running the gun and I really like the sights on it but that's about it.
I personally like the rate-of-fire paired with the 600m/s muzzle velocity. Allows for nice follow-up shots even at longer distances with Iron Repeater. Levering is a good last resort option (similar to the uppercut's) and when paired with a Pax, ammo is plenty. Slightly too pricey, but I have a feeling that will be addressed soon. ;)
