It seems like the devs are aware of the meme’s popularity and want to make it a part of the gameplay experience itself. Well, not all the players are going to like it. That’s because they still receive the annoying pop-up while hoping for the devs to fix it. Maybe the weapon blueprint is the developers’ way of simply acknowledging the issue. A unique way at that.
