    I rather use an assault rifle than use a fucking Glock at close range. Some rifles are actually made for CQC my man

    Maximum effective range is usually the way most tabletop RPGs do it, and that's probably what I would consider using here if I were to incorporate it.

    making assault rifles a universally ideal weapon dependent of range is a little scuffed

    it's best to streamline the rules over being specific to every single gun

    So much fun, use it.
    A zombie screamed at me, I covered my ears (Holding a machete), rolled a 5 and cut my own ear off.
    permanently.
    Critical fails are the best.

    shock troopers and alien grunts should be the same

    synth super soldiers should be slightly nerfed. i don't think they should have an advantage over voltigores (who shoot giant purple electric beams and explode on death)

    pit drones and vorts should definitely not be near each other. should be vorts > pit drones

    should consider putting pit drones down way lower, and increasing their chances of success the more pit drones there are (since they love hunting in pack)

    they are the same
    pit drones are a bit physically hardier than vorts in opfor tbh having them roughly analogous (edit: roll-wise*) seems pretty fair

    the success range grunts have 5 less Why.


    yeah but using this system vorts are gonna have difficulties firing a beam against pit drone because they're so equalized

    oh that

    if i remember right according to @Santa Key that's to balance out shock troopers only having 140 whereas grunts have a solid 150
    this is mostly melee only atm beams and other ranged shit like certain weapons and abilities are still being worked out

    I ended up expanding it in the end, the spreadsheet is just more dated that my doc. I'll update it shortly
