I blame the avengers.
One of my PC wants to play a Hawkeye-like character. He's thinking of an arch-militant, armed with a high-tech bow and a vast arsenal of arrows. Ok, I'll let him try it, who knows, it may be fun. However, when we looked up what kind of monition there is for a bow, we only found explosive arrows…
So, I have to conceive his stuff myself. Here are my ideas; could you guys give me advice or tips?
-Bow: I'd start with the basic bow, upgrade its penetration value to 2, its range to 40m and remove the "primitive" quality. Then, I would add a fire selector, and a red dot laser sight, and give it the "accurate" quality. Based only on components, that makes a rare weapon, but the upgrades I gave push it into extremely rare territory.
-Arrows: I'd make available the base arrows (silent), + arrowheads that mimic each grenade with no or special damage. Ie: anti-plant, blind, hallucinogen, smoke, stun, web…+1 damaging arrowhead (not yet made my mind up on which, but loud). Those arrows would lose the zone quality, and there effect would only apply to the one hit.
I'd let my player start with the bow, and three types of special arrows he can choose, +the silent ones and the damaging ones. In exchange, he would not get his usual starting weapons, or his starting acquisition.
