Q: Why shoot normal bullets when you can use bullets in bullets?!

W: Hey look, a Blue Frooo... nevermind... (newer players sadly won't get this one, and older players might find it even better if they understand where the referrance is coming from to begin with!)

E: They see us rollin', they hatin'.

R: I'm sorry, I can't hear you crying over the sound of my Big Calliber. / I'm soory I can't hear you over the sound of you feeding. / I can't focus on the road ahead, better turn down your shooting noise so I can see better. / Did someone say Drive-By? / Boomzinga!!!

From a design standpoint I prefer short and sweet flavor texts.  I've never been a fan of long flavor texts, no matter how witty or funny (except Post Haste flavor text, which is fine as is).  So some of you may find my suggestions not particularly creative.

Lastly, you'll notice all of my suggestions are straight homages to pop culture.  I believe this fits Nitro's flavor as she is quite fun and sassy.

Ballistic

Kick the tires and light the fires!

Blast Off

I'm surprised (due to Nitro's design/aesthetics) nobody is making Mad Max references so I'll just go ahead.

W: Just one angry shot for our friends!

E: If I'm gonna fall, I'm gonna fall historic on the fury road!
