Bolt Pistol (Umbra Pattern)

The bolt pistol is a scaled down version of the mighty bolter. Featuring the same basic design as the boltgun, the bolt pistol has high stopping power and is a prestigious weapon much sought after among the ranks of the Imperium and even more desirable among rep conscious gang members, where its value as a status symbol is perhaps more important even than its considerable capabilities as a weapon.

This pattern generates a higher muzzle velocity than most bolters which increases stopping power but unfortunately is more prone to jamming.

Pistol: Pistols can be used to make ranged attacks, and can also be used in close combat. If a Pistol has an Accuracy modifier, it applies to ranged attacks only.

Rapid Fire (1): When firing with a Rapid Fire weapon, a successful hit roll scores a number of hits equal to the number of bullet holes on the Firepower dice.

If a Rapid Fire weapon scores more than one hit, the hits can be split between multiple targets. The first must be allocated to the initial target, but the remainder can be allocated to other fighters within 3" of the first who are also within range and line of sight. These must not be any harder to hit than the original target...for example if a target in the open is hit, an obscured target cannot have hits allocated to it. Allocate all of the hits before making any wound rolls.

Rapid Fire also works in close combat when on a weapon that also has the Pistol trait.
