Dice for mechs

Post by Dragonking1411 » Tue Sep 22, 2020 1:50 pm

I have recently been trying to figure out the stats for a size four mech that I have made. More specificlay which die do I use for it. If I used the pilots die the would seem a bit small seeing as he needs to activate two size the miniguns. He would need a five which is not very likely. Any help would be great.

I may be wrong, but I think this is how it is supposed to work, and your best bet here is:

1. Only use one gun at a time.

2. Add another pilot.

3. Fudge things somehow and either increase your pilot's skill dice or decrease the weapons' use cost.

I don't remember there being any penalty for firing multiple weapons. So wouldn't the use rating be 4 for a 2" gun? Then you have a 50% chance to hit for each shot.

Also don't forget about target size bonuses.

Oh, you were trying to say size 3 guns. Yeah, then it's use rating 5. Bigger weapons are best used for shooting at bigger targets so you can take advantage of those target size bonuses.
