I'm not talking visual battle damage. Visual battle damage also means fuck all as the show has demonstrated numerous times. Especially during and after the Anvil attack.
I'm talking real, viable consequences during battles with Nemesis and future Union holons. Just this last episode, he's dead sprinting directly into cannon fire from Jodie and some Striders. Guns are ineffective and that makes them no fun to see in action. Fill that dead time with something else.
The most the the sniper rifle has done is knock him over with a direct headshot, but Kazu's sword can remove limbs and a smaller blade can ACTUALLY pierce his plot armor? Even the Strider on Spider battles have guns that do nothing until someone finally fires a missile or the script requires their sci-fi future guns to finally hit a leg or something so that they fall over.
Nemesis was scary the first time Cammy's gun did nothing. It got old fast and gives the impression that the main cast is fucking retarded.
