- More weapon 'Speed' and 'Power' upgrade steps!

Still to come/currently WIP:

1) 'Ethereal Blaze' milestone: this new planned "god mode" powerup will turn your body into an unstoppable force of destruction!

2) Enemies milestone: We've got currently 22 new enemy types to implement! This milestone is basically the bulk of the work that's left. More on this subject with a more detailed presentation of enemy types later on

3) Difficulty progression milestone: with all the new stuff included the difficulty progression of the survival mode will see a fresh re-design.
