In Jagged-Alliance-2: Unfinished Business there is an option to add additional guns to the game. Does this increase the difficulty of the game (Say by giving your opponents better weapons while leaving your starting weapons the same), decrease it (Give you better starting weapons, give you more options latter on) or not really effect the difficulty of the game?
