So my group doesn't like that some of the weapon upgrade cards are not compatible with weapons that they are obviously used with in real life. My concern is that it would make some weapons overpowered, so I'm back and forth about adding this to our "official" house rules document. Here are some of the combos that we talked about including:

Plenty of Ammo (Light) -- Pistol, Evil Twins, Rifle, AK-47, Assault Rifle, Pa's Gun, MP5, Sub MG, .44 Magnum, MAC-10, Desert Eagle, Thompson, Golden AK-47, Gunblade, Pink M4

Hollow-Point Rounds -- Same list as above.

Laser Pointer -- Same as above, minus the Rifle, MAC-10 & Thompson

Scope -- Rifle, AK-47, Assault Rifle, .44 Magnum, Golden AK-47, Pink M4
Plenty of Ammo (Heavy) -- Sawed Off, Shotgun, Automatic Shotgun, Double Barrel, SPAS 12

I know it sounds like we just throw everything together, but we do play with a tweaked Equipment deck that is almost "finished" (just need to pick up Angry Neighbors), and these weapons and upgrades are relatively balanced in availability.

What do you think? Would it break the game?

Well,the AK-47 and the Automatic Shotgun will be overpowered, but you
can counter it by having less Plenty Of Ammo-cards in the deck.

How have you been tweaking the equipment deck? Just curious..

We have built several different decks to cut down on the Equipment Deck size and to balance the weapons you can get. The only way to get an Ultrared weapon is to kill an Abomination or Lost Zombivor and then roll a 6 on 1D6. The Police/Armory Deck is used for searching Police Cars or any rooms that may have a "stash" of weapons per the Mission Briefing. Pimpweapons are drawn from searching the Pimpmobile or trading in enough VIPs. Here are the decks we use:

Starting Equipment Deck (10)
Fire Axe
5x Pan

Combined Equipment Deck (6)
