But aren't structure levels limited by creation size in the 2010 rules?

Instead, you would have to hit it with one large superweapon. That's not the case for regular creations even with a high armor, which is why combined fire is so effective. For regular creations, combined fire and superweapons are synonymous. It's finding a way to make them two totally different levels to the juggernaut.

Good question. I'd imagine it would reduce it to zero, since those bonuses apply to the die roll. If there's no die roll, there's no damage roll to apply the bonus to. I could see how you'd argue that the juggernaut should take 5 damage because assyrian rifles are so hardxcore, but I feel like the rule should work best as an extreme, reducing damage from ANYTHING with only one die of damage to zero.
IVhorseman wrote:so 1d6 damage resistance against each attack? I feel like combined fire should be able to override a juggernaut's bonuses, but this may actually be a better way to do it. I guess it boils down to whether or not people like the idea of combined fire being a solution to a juggernaut
