Surprisingly, the cardboard weapons and shield have gotten fans really happy and excited. The YouTube comments are flooded with joy over the cardboard, and on Reddit, fans have praised Embark for listening to the community.

In the Reddit post, it’s highlighted how Embark’s release of the cardboard riot shield comes only five days after Reddit OP, ReaperWTGun, posted fan art of a cardboard ‘riot shield skin that would go hard‘.

Whether it is mere coincidence or an example of the developer actually hearing the fanbase, it’s good that fans finally have cardboard weapons to play with. But there’s more than just cardboard as the store update also includes a gun littered in colorful sticky notes to remind you that you should be working instead of playing.
