Sick. However, this is something that's been bothering me for a while now. You can kill most enemies in this game with the brass knuckles alone, if not all... (with the exception of last boss) And without any melee upgrades at all. Now, imagine melee completely upgraded. I mean, you don't even need weapons. The character is WAY overpowered because of brass knuckles, the fact that you can't have it unequipped makes it hard to ignore.

When i play a +NewGame on nightmare i try to ignore it. The problem is that every time you pull a switch, finish climbing a ladder etc...The character hangs his weapon on his back and if you happen to be surrounded at that moment or attacked you're most likely going to throw a punch to escape, then pull your weapon back, but when you see that your escape punch resulted in an instant kill (2 or 3 insta-kills if they are close enough) you're gonna forget about you're weapons, stealth and ammo conservation tactics and just swing everything to death which pretty much destroys the core game play of this game. Boom!!, the challenge is gone. It's just pointless. I like the brass knuckles, what i don't like is the ridiculous damage it does even without upgrades and most of all, to be forced to have it equipped all the time.

I watched some of it yesterday but did not finished it. Wait a minute you're right, but how in earth is he playing in Akumu without the brass knuckles??, i though you unlock it after beating survival, and can't unequipped it on Nightmare, i guess you don't get brass knuckles after beating Akumu?? Ok i'm going to work now, talk to you later
man.

Edit: My bad , yeah he's playing a NewGame on Akumu that's why he doesn't have the brass knuckles. I wanted to express my concerns about how powerful the brass knuckles are tho.

I know, right? Absolutely nuts. Must have taken a lot of patience and perseverance to learn how to do that.
