A type of ammunition devised to pierce the biotechnological protections of troops and vehicles.




After a successful attack with Breaker Special Ammunition, the target must make a BTS Roll using half his BTS value.


  • Breaker Special Ammunition reduces the BTS value of its target to half of its original value, rounding up.
  • The effects of Breaker Special Ammunition apply only to the BTS value of the target, and not to the Partial Cover MOD, which remains unaltered.
  • Each BTS Roll failed against Breaker Special Ammunition causes the target to lose one point from his Wounds/STR Attribute.
  • Critical hits with Breaker Special Ammunition cause the target to lose 1 point from his Wounds/STR Attribute directly, bypassing the usual BTS Roll.

Breaker is an umbrella term for a number of types of ammunition designed to pierce the defensive barriers of modern bio-technological shielding (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear). The name references the technical expression 'Breakthrough time', a criterion used in the evaluation of CBRN protection that measures the time until the hazardous agent reaches the body. Breaker ammunition can have a variety of different operational mechanisms—nanotechnological, chemical, biological, electromagnetic, etc.—but the design philosophy is always to pierce or degrade the materials that constitute the target's defenses.


N3 Frequently Asked Question FAQ Version: 1.1
Q: A figure declares a BS Attack with a Breaker Rifle and Marksmanship, does each impact oblige you to perform a BTS Roll and an ARM Roll, receiving two wounds if failing both?
A: Yes. As stated on page 107, if the Ammunition affects different Attributes their effects are not combined, forcing the target to make a separate Roll for each affected Attribute.
