The average roll on a d10 is actually 5.5. For a single roll you can round it up to six but it's a good tjing to take into account when you have multiple dice, because the average roll on 2d10 is 11 (ie, a 1good and a 10) not 12.

It might seem nitpicky at the d10 level (not to me, it's still a little over an 8% bonus) but with the smaller die types it becomes a bigger deal.

Oh, of course, "exploding" dice throw all that off. Duh.

That's what I get for trying to drop science while on the toilet first thing in the morning.

Sounds like you dropped it in the wrong place.

Just givin ya what you asked for. It sounds like you have to jump through a lot of hoops by giving your guys all extra armor and damage which ends up messing with some of your other stats - 1d6+3 for example is a pretty ridiculous roll (better than 1d10 but as far as i've understood all you've got are d6s), which actually gives those weapons the ability to be pretty effective anti-armor. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing since you're free to and encouraged to play brikwars however the fuck you want.

I know rolling insane damage rolls seems to be as awesome rolling against a fixed armor instead of a dynamic one, but I'm telling you that having two opportunities for damage and armor rolls to fight one another instead of just one is roughly twice as awesome - I've rolled two d6s against one another and rolled 15 vs. 16 and lost a hero. Fucking tragic.

Again though, play however you want to. This is just my feedback.

I do appreciate the feedback. It forces me to think about some things. The SMG's are indeed powerful but this is partially made up by their (lack of) range.

The standard 6" for short-ranged, one point of UR added (I give UR 2 to low damage laser pistols and the like because they're already pretty underwhelming as is) not to be too OP. The idea is that (regular) single-shot weapons deal less damage but it's easier to aim them.
