That's exactly what I like about them :)

I honestly never thought of any of the materials in M2 as being plastic, for some reason.

(which don't fit

: which can suck up shells much faster than you can replenish them. In M1
: though, ammo problems are around every corner, if you're not careful.
: Scratch-starting any level can be a challenge, forcing you to use your
: Fists all the time. The gameplay fits the atmosphere in that respect.

True, but I think fighting with fists only generates tension when you're trying to vid something, or attempting to kill something ridiculous with fists, like a juggernaut. Otherwise it's just the most boring way to kill anything.
