I'm currently playing the Sacrifice mod, where the first pet you get
is the blaster. And... I admit that I use it much more than the
nautilus I got since. Oh well, I guess it just has to be with the
first pet you get... :-)

Yes, I think it would alter the balance a bit too much. In my
understanding, Alec thought of the pets as "little helpers", not
"firepower boost" or "autofiring turrets" (à la "Raptor : Call of the
shadows"). :-P
