OK ok just write this off as fanboy speculation but.. we're totally getting these weapons right?
I mean... Hammer - War, Shield - Pld, Badanhkas - Mnk, Halberd - Drg, Sword - Pld.
I imagine they follow the same pattern. Fight in story, then unlock hard mode for cash and prizes! The weapons could work with higher crit chance and crit dmg, crits = gunshots.
Also, aside from the first 2 (which were added before they decided to go with the power rangers) are from Greek and Norse Mythology, and Mjolnir was the Whm Relic in FFXI.
I mean.. it just seems like they must know what level of fan-service "gun weapons" are and this is just an awesome tease.
