Gun Combat Modifiers

NOTE: These are automatically calculated in Gun BCS, HTH BCS and Bow BCS

Base BCS = BCS - (Restrictions + Distractions + Situational Modifier)
Adjusted BCS = Base BCS - Target Overall Defense Ability

Averaging Skill: Attacker BCS + Averaging BCS / 5
Note: Never higher than base BCS

BCS +1 +1 0 -1 -2 -5
BDG +10 0 0 -10% -25% -50%

BDG / (Personal ENC + .5(ENC Cap) = Stopping
Average Personal ENC = 4.0, average Enc cap 9, average mass: 8

Stopping > 4 Knock back 2D3 Meters + DFT AST
Stopping > 8 Knock Back 2D3 Meters + DFT CST
Stopping > 12 Knock Back 2D3 Meters, Automatic Knock Down

Missile Special Effects

Caclulated per shot Missile Special Effect chance is if D100 < modified BDG (times any special effects from bullets such as hollow point). For Burst, it is the same, even though many bullets hit at the same time.

Shock Factor

Shock factor is calculated per shot. So if a character is hit 4 times in one action phase, there is a chance for up to 4 shock rolls. Shock factor for NPCs is always 10.

Firearms have an Inherent Accuracy which is added to the Talent-based BCS of the inexperienced user. It is based on the overall class of weapon and its BBL. If the user’s own BCS in the weapon, based on a Gun Skill, exceeds the score derived from his Combative Talent and the Inherent Accuracy, then it is used instead of that score. Inherent Accuracy is effective only for those who are NOT trained in using the weapon!
