Thoughts

Meh.

I don’t think you need this. If APB had a quicker loadout selection, this might be useful if you know you’re going into a location that has various height differences that would actual benefit from using this mod. But it just seems far too situational, at least for me, to warrant being used constantly.

Also, this might throw off players since they might not expect a no-animation fall, but the damage you occur can negate the surprise you gain.

Combining Hard Landings and Fragile makes running around Social District a little bit more fun since no fall damage is given out.
