Default Munchkin Ducktales, Metal Bugs, discard handed items before combat

This might be one of the harshest cards I've encountered in munchkin so I'm wondering if it's intentionally this harsh. (Harsher than bad stuff and even curses).

The card says you discard handed items before combat.

It says the metal bugs eat anything metal. If a handed item doesn't have metal (like the cane) do you still discard it?

If the handed item is being used with a cheat card, does it get discarded?

If the laser gun is being used as a vehicle enhancer instead of a handed item, does it get discarded?

"They eat anything metal" is flavor text. "Discard your Hand Items" is the rule. Yes, this includes Cheated Items. It does not include the Laser Gun if you've previously equipped it as a Vehicle Enhancer, but you can't retroactively decide it's an enhancer once you see the Curse.
