32 guns, but only 28 gun stacker connectors? Are some of those guns just Too Awesome to be stacked?

Good question. Basically in the Gun Stacker system you can several stacks of guns. The biggest a stack can be is 6 guns high.

The connectors go between the guns. So for a 6-gun stack, you only need 5 connectors.

So at the max of 32 guns (if you collect them all), you can have 5 stacks with 6 guns (30 guns), then a final stack of 2 guns = 32 guns.

So we have 5, 6-gun stacks which only need 5 connectors a piece, 5x5 = 25.
Then we have a final small stack of 2 guns, which only needs 1 more connector.

Thus, really we only need 26 connectors. There's 28 to make sure more people get to more of the connectors. I'll think about it and maybe just trim it down to exactly 26 before release, we'll see.
