Crossbow fix idea (starter rifle)
Making rifle talents also effect crossbow, as well as generic firearm talents. Remove Crossbow from bow talents. TLDR: Rifle specs would have a T2 weapon that uses their talents and fits their style. Basically, make the crossbow a nice weapon for rifle specs, as a starter weapon. Bolts are expensive, one of the main drawbacks. The first rifle talent being cheaper ammo would make the crossbow cheaper to fuel. Reload is also a major problem for crossbow, and the rifle reload talent is also very early in the tree . As a rifle user levels they would have easy access to a weapon that uses those talents before they get the rifle. This gives rifle specs a T2 Weapon to ease the Push into T3. There would be no need to add more teirs of crossbow to try and compete with bows, as the upgrade would be the bolt action rifle.
