Magma Rifle Rework and New Model, Grenade Launcher Alt Fire Rework

Patchnotes via steamstore-a.akamaihd.net

The Magma Rifle's model is finally finished. I figured since I was adding a new model I might as well completely rework everything about the Magma Rifle. It was a weak and inconsistant gun with really poor effects. The Magma Rifle went from, "Meh I got this again" to, "I LOVE SHOOTING THIS THING!" for me at least.

It's primary fire does damage on hit followed by a large AoE explosion which is followed by an even larger explosion. It's been updated with way better effects and sound effects have been added.

It's alt fire is now akin to a high damage fireworks display. It looks awesome but also does stupid amounts of damage to match the high cost. The attack does 2x player damage around the effect every one tenth of a second before it releases a large explosion for 5x player damage.

I'm not finished with the texturing but I definitely wanted to get this in the game asap.

The sound effects will improve when I get to the point where that's my focus. For now I'm just trying to get the guns where they should be.

I reworked the Arcane Grenade Launcher's alt fire as well. When it hits something there's a damage dealing explosion that releases five more Grenades. These will all hit the same target if you direct hit them dealing a lot of damage. In my testing it one shots nests. It's pretty nasty.

As always I added more rooms to the random room rotation.

I'm still not entirely sure what is causing the random issue of the dungeon failing to load. It will not affect a run in progress and if you get the issue just reload to the main menu. I'm really sorry that this is still a thing.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've had a lot going on and almost lost the game files completely due to a combination of incompetence on my end, a Windows install to a new SSD and Cloud Drive. All is well and hopefully I'll get the Atomizer rework/remodel added and sent to you guys very soon.
