The usual gold equipment that can be bought at any time has been changed. The only piece I really liked was the Turbo Viper.
Turbo Viper, 60 Gold, A39 D23
the new car:
State Car, 60 Gold, A19 D31
If you try to buy a Turbo Viper from the loot after a fight, it just comes up as 'loot item unavailable for purchase'.
The two low price gold melee and armor equip are heavily beaten by easy to get respect items. The only decent one is the 50Gold gun A37 D21 but there is no real point in getting it with M4's and Sawn-offs.
Way to put off people spending R/M Funzio. I was hoping to add a couple more Turbo Vipers.
