Hello, good Only War players. My time is short and I have much to ask, so I'll make this as quick as possible.
Imagine that I'm playing a character with high BS. Let's say an effective BS of 80, all things taken into account. I am fighting a single enemy - or a bunch of enemies neatly spread out. These enemies are Eldar hopped up on space-speed or whatever, with holo suits and camo cloaks and all that junk. Their total to-hit penalty is -60. I have very poor odds of hitting them.
So what I do is use Suppressive Fire and make sure my cone only catches one of them. Suddenly I have only a -20 to hit them, and thus I am so good at shooting that by spraying randomly, I put every bullet between the eyes of a foe I normally couldn't hit with careful aiming.
Situation #2: Imagine that I'm alone in a corridor, facing a number of - I dunno, gangers or something. Normally, I'd be toast, but I'm reasonably certain these guys have low willpower. In my pocket, I find my trusty Uplifting Primer. I set up an Overwatch to throw my improvised weapon at the first enemy to get within range - they are all within range already, so I immediately throw my slab of Imperial literature at the enemy. Overcome by the sheer presence of such holy writing, they all fail their Pinning tests and run for the hills, and thus the Uplifting Primer has saved the day once again. Assuming I avoid summary execution for misuse of the Primer, I just scared away ten armed men by throwing a book at them. This is perfectly RAW.
What I want to know is, has anyone else had similar problems? Have you implemented any cleverly written house rules to avoid such issues, besides rule 0?
