Is there anything about this? There were anti tank snipers used in real life. Just like holding a bastard weapon with 2 hands gives AP, couldnt there be some limitation that in turn can make a gun AP? It probably should be a certian size, you can't just make a pistol an anti tank gun. Maybe it needs to be a certain size and costs some extra CP to make it armor peircing without being explosive?

So, IRL Anti-Tank and Anti-Material rifles are just large caliber rifles. Closest thing in brikwars is a Size 2 gun, however that is a little boring.

Custom weapons at the end of Chapter 8 may be what you are looking for, you could probably create something pretty effective and fun. A High Powered but Safety fitted Size 2 gun, swapping out 3d6 for 2d6 Armor Piercing and 1d4 Incendiary would allow you to possibly immolate a tank crew, while ignoring the tank itself.

Wait, what? Bastard weapons can only be used two-handed.

EDIT: My mistake, sort of. Close Combat bastard weapons are AP when used two handed, thought you meant ranged weapons.

TFW you know you'll be fighting Cabal anti gravity tanks with Hand Cannon's in Destiny 2 because Bungie fisted special and heavy weapons into PvE obscurity.
