I've read through the rule book a few times and I'm kind of confused about how the ranges for weapons work. For example, on page 33 it says that a Holdout Blaster is a short range weapon, a Blaster Pistol is a medium range weapon and a Blaster Rifle is a long rage weapon. Does this mean that this is the only range that these weapons can fire in? Is it impossible to fire a Holdout Blaster at long range or a Blaster Rifle at short range?
The way I'm reading the rules is that firing a Blaster Rifle, which can only be fired at long range, will always be "Hard" difficulty. A Holdout Blaster, which can only be fired at short rage, will always be "Easy" difficulty. This seems too simple and doesn't really make sense to me. What am I missing?
