Should DLC weapons be allowed for records?

This game has certain dlc weapons that can be very p2w for speedruns. The way I see it is, there are two ways of tackling this to make it fair for everyone. Solution 1 is to allow a mutator that unlocks all the dlc weapons (downside is that consoles can't run these). Solution 2 is to disqualify any runs featuring dlc weapons.

all weapons should be allowed in my opnion . would be weird to ban some weapons just cause they are dlc . would be painfull for mods to watch every run as well to look out for dlc weapons , since the goal with speedruning is to go fast

Game is IL based and DLC weapons do not make a player better then another. Excluding them makes no sense, and Were not gonna exclude Console runners either. There is no p2w issues with DLC in the game. (majority of the stuff is cosmetic and even outside those rare cases they are not better then other alternatives as the game relies more on your class and play style then any specific weapon)

Mutators will continue to not be allowed in runs because it makes it far to difficult to deal with and moderate a base line for them.

IL based games and runs like this are treated as NG+ always so any equipment, levels etc are permitted so long as they are apart of the game and officially released and available to get by anyone who owns the game without modify or cheating to gain or acquire an advantage.

The only one thing I would be willing to do in this case is to allow runners to tag their runs if they use DLC weapons or not which will allow an optional filter for those wanting to compare top times with or without them to their preference when looking at the boards. But it will not be enforced as a separate at this time.

If and when SRDC gives us better moderation tools and functions for board management and specifically for IL's will be when we can look at future changes without the headache and mess that it is currently to setup and maintain them.
