Microsoft has decided to start the new year by removing all "gun-like" items from the Xbox Live Avatar Marketplace, Epic Game's community manager revealed.
The new policy will take effect starting January 1st, 2012. Items that have been bought prior to that date will remain unaffected. The policy applies to avatar weapons only and it doesn't affect in-game items and DLCs.
Microsoft didn't comment or give reasons for the weird policy change.
