o Bad Hair Day

Equipment
• Fixed a bug that caused the player's grenade count to not be saved properly if they were using a Grenadier class mod.
• Fixed a bug causing Seraph items of the day to incorrectly be capped at level 55.
• Rebalanced the Gunzerker's Titan class mod to be more in line other Gunzerker class mods.
