Researching weapons

Got my answer. You don't add anything to the load out. 
 
That said, a weapon research thread is probably a good idea. For instance, did you know you can upgrade your grenades so they do less friendly fire damage? It's a 5,000 point upgrade and probably changes the way I use those bastards!

I was wondering this myself but, I think there's only some weapons you can start out with and the other upgrades on weapons make it so that the weapons you pick up of those type during the mission are upgraded. Like it would be really unbalanced for you to be able to spawn from the start with the minigun theoretically but you can upgrade it so that when you do get to pick it up it's better.

Starting off with these already overpowered weapons would be ridiculous. Add upgrades to those and you got massive balance issues.
