Created from scavenged detonators and low-end demolition gear, short-fused blasting charges are devastating to flesh and objects both.

Grenade: Grenades are treated as a special type of ranged weapon. A Grenade may be thrown by an Active fighter as a Shoot action. Grenades do not have a Short range, and their Long range is determined by the attacking fighter's Strength. The Firepower dice is not rolled when attacking with a Grenade; an Ammo check must be rolled after each attack made with a Grenade. The Reload (Simple) Action cannot be taken on a weapon profile with the Grenade trait.

Knockback (Blast): After a hit made by an attack with this trait has been resolved, if the target was not taken Out of Action they may be involuntarily moved away from the direction of the attack. To resolve this, the attack has a Knockback Force equal to the attack's Strength + D3. Subtract the value indicated in the Knockback Resistance table below from that Knockback Force to determine the Knockback Distance (minimum 0).

If the Knockback Distance is 0 the target is unaffected by this trait. Otherwise, the target is involuntarily moved that many inches directly away from the direction of the attack. If the target is moved into an obstruction, the target stops moving and suffers a hit resolved with a Strength equal to the Knockback Distance, no AP, and 1 Damage; if the obstruction has Wounds, it also suffers an identical hit.

For instance, a Strength 3 attack with this trait can generate Knockback Force between 4 and 6, while the Knockback Resistance of a Strength 3 fighter is also between 4 and 6. Thus, depending on comparative dice rolls, that fighter might be entirely unaffected or might be moved back 1'' or 2'' if hit by that attack.

The 1'' rule does not apply to this involuntary movement. If a target fighter would end their movement within 1'' of one or more enemy fighters they are instead moved into base contact with the nearest enemy fighter(s).

At the end of resolving this trait, if the target is a fighter and they remain Active, that fighter becomes Pinned.

Blast: If an attack with this trait also has the Blast (3'') or Blast (5'') traits, this trait applies to all fighters within the blast's area. Resolve the effect of the attack starting with the fighter furthest from the center of the Blast marker and then moving to the next furthest. Knocked back fighters are moved away from the center of the Blast marker rather than directly back from the attacker. If a knocked back fighter is directly centered under the Blast marker, roll a Scatter dice to determine the direction they are moved; if a 'HIT' is rolled the attacking player decides the direction.
Falling: A fighter will fall if they are moved off a ledge or over a pitfall. They may also fall if they become Pinned near a ledge and fail the subsequent Initiative check. If this occurs, first finish resolving the attack which knocked them back, then resolve falling damage only if the knocked back fighter remains on the battlefield.
Knockback (Blast): after failed save, KB a # of inches == (D6 + target's STR); away from center of blast. If blocked, attack gains +1 DMG instead. Target may fall, if applicable.

Blast (5''): The weapon uses a 5” Blast marker.

Penetrating: When a weapon with this trait successfully hits, it has D3 Armor Penetration against the target.

Rupture: When a weapon with this trait successfully wounds, D3 Damage is inflicted against the target.

Limited: If an Ammo check is failed for a weapon profile with the Limited trait, the weapon profile is deleted from the fighter card immediately. Do not recalculate the fighter's Rating until the Update Roster step of the Post-Battle Sequence.

Single Shot: A weapon profile with this trait can only be used once per game; any other weapon profiles the weapon has which lack this trait are unaffected. After use the affected weapon profile is treated as having automatically failed an Ammo Check, and the weapon profile cannot be reloaded by any means. There is no need to roll the Firepower dice unless the weapon profile also has the Rapid Fire (x) trait.
