The Desperado ability can be used with any move action, not just a Full Move like the Hip Shooting talent. This could include the Run, Tactical Advance, and Disengage actions, to name a few.

 

I'm now imagining a Desperado with Sprint running past enemies at blinding speed, pumping them full of hand cannon rounds while emitting a fearsome war yodel :D

 

Actually, I asked the Devs about this:

This question, specifically:

3. The Desperado ability has a lot in common with Hip Shooting.  It's a little unclear, does Move and Shoot allow a Desperado to make any Move Action? for instance a Run or Charge action and still make a Standard Attack Action?

Desperado: Move is its own Action, and Run/Charge are separate actions, so no. 
 
Not sure about improving Called Shot. In our games, being able to hit a location without armour or cover is pretty nice as is, but we'll look this over. 
 
We're looking at all the powers, yes. I like the suggestions for the Divination ones, thanks!
 
Thanks as always! Any other comments, feel free to pass them along as well as playtesting reports if possible. We won't be going final on the book for awhile yet.

Ah, that clears things up nicely. Alas, my dreams of war-yodeling Desperado drive-by shootings will have to be placed on hold (probably for the best) :D

One little thing that irks me, Good Quality being a -15, keeps you from getting a good quality item at start unless it is 2 steps under scarce (which "wastes" 5 points). Also, is there any method like RT had for combining acquisitions? i.e. take the rarest item on the list (like a telescopic sight, silenced, sniper rifle (Average +0, Plentiful +20, Scarce -10) in this case the Sniper Rifle at -10, then tack on a -5 for each weapon mod. Making a -20 test in the DH 2 system (no scale to balance the test out, BC had a lesser version than RT with it's +30, but the +10 for a single person still helped out, though best quality was -20 in BC as well, compared to the -30 of RT)

Any idea when those of us who got the pdf beta through RPGnow will get to download a non beta copy?
