Icarus is constantly updating with new wildlife and more difficult situations. We can craft lab grade furnaces, fabricators, solar panels, etc., but for some reason the best firearm we can craft is a lever action rifle. The game already incorporates aluminum, titanium, and composites as crafting materials. Please consider the ability for prospectors to craft new & better firearms w/ new caliber types. I believe this will also provide more relevance to crafting the more difficult Tier 4 items considering most missions do not emphasize the need to do so. Plus with new future maps in "alien" biomes these weapons could be extremely important to players who want to grind and prepare to get the best gear for the most intense scenarios the game would have to offer as this game develops.
