Transformable Weapons and Alternate Firemodes

Post by Duerer » Fri Oct 23, 2015 5:41 am

After getting word about the new FB MSBS Assault Rifle and realizing, that some of my special weapons use the same parts as my assault rifles, I thought about implementing that modular rifle feature into my weaponry. However, I'm not sure about the implementation of such a transformation rule and how it would effect CP costs (or that new inch buying system).

EXHIBIT A: ROCKET LAUNCHER
Image
Assault Rifle Mode:
Use: 3 Rng: 10 Dmg: 1d6+1

Launcher Mode:
Use: 3 Rng: 10 Dmg: (can launch Size 1 explosives)
EXHIBIT B: ANTI-GRAV RIFLE
Image
Assault Rifle Mode:
Use: 3 Rng: 10 Dmg: 1d6+1

Anti-Grav Rifle Mode:
Use: 4 Rng: 10 Dmg: 1d6/1d8 for each die of the target's armour roll
Another example of alternate fire modes would be the Magyar Bows, that use three different types of arrows:
Image
Standard Arrows:
Use: 3 Rng: 10 Dmg: 1d6+1

Explosive Arrows (limited ammo):
Use: 3 Rng: 10 Dmg: (can launch Size 1 explosives)

Incendiary Arrows (limited ammo):
Use: 3 Rng: 10 Dmg: 1d4 fire (in a radius of 2")

Just make them spend action on switching mode, and it's balanced enough.

That Anti-Grav Gun is damn interesting concept.

Agree with Maddox here. It's going to take time to switch modes. You get the flexibility of the change ability but lose time and leave your guy vulnerable for a turn.

I'm pretty sure(don't quote me) that the target doesn't get a save afterwards... :troll:
