My read is that One Punch and King Hit Cant be used together. It’s the bit that says “The fighter may choose to roll a single attack dice, irrespective of...any other bonuses” that makes me think that. And yes I can see how it could be read as only applying to the number of attack dice rolled rather than the additional effects applied to the single attack dice.

Sawn offs were always crap so I’m not worried about them becoming crapper, though I would argue that any rule that references a weapon, rather than an ammo type or weapon profile, would let you pick the ammo type or weapon profile you are using.

Also it looks like you are missing the new Backstop trait that the power knife has in the weapon reference chart on page 116. It’s clearly meant to be Backstab but that dastardly autocorrect has done it again.

What if this is a hidden message of a temp chained to a keyboard? Like "Let me go BACK home to my family! STOP, please, no more books! "

Why doesn't Wreckers have access to Pistols from Trading Post & Black Market like all other specialist juves? Note how the word "Pistol" is omitted, while still referring to "sections" in plural:
...may only be equipped with weapons chosen from this list, or from the [Pistols and] Close Combat Weapons sections of the Trading Post or the Black Market.

One thing missing is the Gun Skull (held by Toll Collectors), although the autopistol in the gun skull appears in the weapons reference.
The book is trying to include all (or most?) relevant rules. Since it includes Cult Icon for Coin Guild, it should follow the same pattern and include the gun skull, specially since they included the weapon profil!

This I could see as intentional, considering Wreckers already have an excellent selection of pistols available in their equipment list. I could see them getting access to Web or Inferno Pistols might be a tad over the top, really.

I have a question, how a fighter affected by a promethium barrels, thats is within 3 " of it acts.



1) the fighter only can do a simple move action and his activation ends.

2) the fighter can do his two actions but only one can be a move action.


wich one is right?

Pardon my bad english

I was trying to fix all the House Terrain rules for my house rule document (the worst rules in the game, something they keep ignoring in FAQs), when I noticed that the Fixed weapon trait used on the Orlock Road Relic (and Van Saar rad cannon turret) has a hilarious exploit. Fighters in base contact with them count as having it on their fighter card... That's it. No limits on how many fighters can use it in a turn. How about firing 10 heavy stunner shots per turn? You can do it per the rules!

It is a bit limited since it's in a fixed position, but if that position is good then yeah. Funny because they obviously thought of this for the passenger operated vehicle weapons, where this loophole is closed (setting a hard limit of once per round). Of course this should obviously also apply to all similar weapons like the fixed ones. But since the gang terrain rules have the worst quality ever (classic filler content) that GW won't bother fixing.
