First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals?
Reto.Injection – Back when I played Duke Nukem 3D, my gamertag was originally  “Drugs” (don’t ask – I don’t know why :-)), and people started to comment on the fact that when I killed someone it said “Killed by Drugs”, which some found a bit too offensive, so I decided to change it to “Injection”.
