DoubleFine got where it was due to hype building within the videogame media and people, not by appealing to existing groups on Kickstarter. The same will be true for InXile. This isn't a "typical" Kickstarter appeal, really, nor was DoubleFine. You have to keep PR in mind as it will be covered by a large amount of websites and discussed by different crowds of people. Is this forum representative of all of them? Probably not. But while InXile might keep pre-order DLC in, they should at least know from this thread to present it right and clarify that it is extra, jokey stuff (as in Toast Repair and gold-plated uzi), and not the type of game-breaking preorder DLC that has been ruining BioWare game balance for years now.
And no, you can't ignore what happened with Mass Effect 3 when discussing this. Not because it's the same thing in practice, but because it will be received as similar in how it's marketed.

I guess for the weapon you could just dump it on the ground and pretend it never existed, but a way to opt out of the skill (if it turns out to be problematic) would be nice.

5$ - "encouragement level" where you don't get the game for free but a person can still contribute and show support to developers (for example if a person believes he/she is not interested in lower budget games but wants to say thanks to developers who stood behind the origins of the Fallout New Vegas or something).

I think you would have to sign up for the $50 reward twice. It sounds silly but Kickstarter will be keeping track of all of the rewards for us and they will give us a list of who purchased what tier. They don't charge any extra fees so it will still be $100...which is nice.
