A Duelist's Weapon

39 posts in this topic

The Inquisitor's Handbook says that "the Belasco Deathworks production models are little better in terms of reliability" -- in other words, they are no more reliable than the models produced by other manufacturers. Because of this, I think the Belasco versions should still be Unreliable. If the acolytes want a .54 Tranter that isn't Unreliable, they can buy a Good quality version.

 

As for a gunslinger weapon, you could take a pair of Khayer-Addin Dueling Laspistols for the cool factor. They are described as being revered weapons among Metallicans, so they'd fit the character well.

 

The stats for KA Dueling Laspistols are:

Range = 30m

RoF = S/-/-

Damage = 1d10+4 E

Pen = 4

Accurate, Tearing

Clip = 1

Reload = Full

Weight = 1.7kg

220 Thrones, Very Rare

 

The ammunition is also expensive -- it essentially fires special hotshot charge packs that cost 20 Thrones each and are Rare (Scarce on Scintilla).

 

If you were to use KA pistols, I'd get a red-dot sight for each gun and get the Rapid Reload talent.

So it's a one-shot accurate Bolt Pistol? (That deals Energy damage.)

What we did in our game, was to move from a Poor Quality weapon to a Common one. 

 

Now the gunslinger in ourgame is using a pair of Talon Mark III, with red dot as his backup weapon/damm there are a lot of them guns :rolleyes:

being a noble he has a pair of Mauler Bolt Pistol, all kitted out as primary guns

but undercover he swaps to Stormchild Heavy Revolver with red dots

How much of a liability is the Clip size?

 

If you can kill an enemy with one shot, then not much of a liability at all. If your enemy is tough enough to shrug off a hit from both KA pistols, then it does become a little trickier. You should be safe while you reload provided you have a good Dodge skill and Step Aside, but squishier members of the party won't appreciate it if you don't take out the BBEG before reloading.

Not that I want to throw a wrench in the works, but how can you put a fire selector on a a revolver? Doesn't the revolving part negate switching between magazines? I think you'd have to go with a stub automatic instead. It drops reliable, but gains ammo capacity and rate of fire.

Edit: After reading the rules, it's not against the rules to put a fire selector on a revolver, just the laws of physics. :)

I suppose you could have a wheel with 3 6 shot chambers rotating on a central axis, but that seems VERY bulky and counter to the simplicity of using a revolver.

You people are clearly not hardcore enough.

Otherwise, get a whole mess of one-shot pistols and quick draw new ones instead of reloading. I've done something similar in the past with maximal plasma weapons.

My last character was a Noble Scum "Prince of Pistoleers". His weapon of choice was a Dueling Las. With quick draw, rapid reload and Mighty Shot talents, you have a 1d10+6 pen 4 weapon with accurate and tearing that can be reloaded as a half action and fired as a half action. You don't get to  use accurate by doing so, but it's a devastating hand gun and fits right in with a dueling character.

As long as you can wangle a half action reload it really doesn't matter what the clip size of a gun is unless you don't have enough spare ammo.
