The corner shot allows you to shoot around a corner without being shot.

it costs 2 Cps.

The weapon is the same exept it gets a -1 to all roles(For 1: not aiming as well, ans 2: being a coward.)

the core rules actually say that firing blind (you know where a target is but can't see it) takes a minus FIVE skill penalty. then again, it looks like you've got a targeting lens thingy, so that'd let him see, i guess.

OOhh! I just watched a military channel show that featured this baby. The little scope is a video screen that shows what the barrel is 'seeing'. Thusly you can shoot around a corner without firing blind or risking yourself. GO COWARDICE!

go, hard to shoot.
that must be ridiculously hard to aim.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

I remember when I was younger I heard about a a gun that could shoot around corners. I instantly though of a a rifle with a a long barrel that has a 90 degree angle in it. Man was I stupid, confused kid.

I was watching a show about WWII weapons and I think the germans had this. A rifle that had a curved barrel to make a 90 deg shot.

It wasnt really used in battle. Just something they experimented with. They showed the gun, its real.

It was called the "Krummlauf", and actually it was used in combat, just not produced in significant numbers.  The main issue was that the bent attachments wore out after a couple hundred shots.

That gun works exactly how I thought it would. A slow, gradual curve, as opposed to a sharp 90 degree angle.

The germans did use a weapon like this in WWII but it was mainly used to keep Allied soldiers off of the tanks because they could be shot from inside and produced a shotgun like effect due to the bullet shattering inside the barrel.
