How to calculate th CP cost of a weapon?

Postby motorhead fan » Wed Dec 07, 2016 9:37 am

Hello,

I decided to give all my space troopers smgs, that way they aren't just grey standard infantry with a +1 to armor.

However, I find the range of the machine guns in the rulebook to be a bit short for my taste (6 inches) so I decided to round it up to 8.

Since the statcard generator doesn't allow custom weapons, I was wondering if someone could tell me ow to work out the cp for a weapon.

Some space troopers so you know what I'm talking about.

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

I have stated an SMG before as the same damage output as a rifle (1d6+1) and a range of 8 but the trade off is that it can be used 1 handed. Since I subtracted range but effectively freed a hand, I thought it was a fair trade and kept its CP the same.

It's kind of annoying that I forgot that it existed, I printed off a piece of paper of all the weapons and it's on my desk in my room. Thanks for the help!
