I'm not saying The Roach is haunted, because ghosts are dumb and not real, but it has outlived each of its 6 owners.The weapon seems nearly indestructible, always coming back to us, even if the last Ranger I gave it to didn't. I have never heard of it jamming or running out of ammo at an inopportune time, thanks to all the extra work I put into it, but people keep dropping like flies around it. I don't know. Maybe having all those extra shells makes you feel invincible? ... Just come back home, Cadet Specialist.
