(M) Double Shot

(M) Double Shot

  • Attribute:  Agility
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  Characters with this skill are able to accurately fire two shots with one action. The manner in which this skill is used is largely dependent on the type of weapon, with two primary methods--simultaneous shots may made with a bow using two arrows and a single pull of the string or by throwing two weapons at the same time; successive shots may are made with two quick pulls of the trigger on an energy or projectile weapon. With a successful skill check, the attacker is able to fire both shots at a single target, the shots are defended as a single action, but damage saves are handled individually; alternately, the shots may be fired at separate targets in a forty-five degree arc, with each target allowed individual defend actions and damage saves. It may be used as a Shoot or Throw attack (assuming the character has the skill and the weapon ammo allows for the capability), with all related and general combat modifiers applied normally. If the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the attack misses.
  • Prerequisites:  Eight skill points in Ranged Combat
