Marksmanship

From Infinity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Users of this Special Skill are exceptional sharpshooters, adept at hitting their target's weakest spots and making every shot count.

Some soldiers earn renown for the spectacular precision of their shots, but more than anything the military values the capacity to be accurate and deadly even when firing instinctively from the hip. The ability to pull the trigger first and still hit the mark can be inborn or obtained through extensive training or a wealth of combat experience, but it is not something the average military professional can expect to achieve. The trick is to not just hit the target—there are visors and aim aids for that—, but find his unprotected points, and exploit his weaknesses. That is where the killer instinct of a predator shines through.

  • In the same way, in this single BS Attack, the users ignore all the MODs provided by Partial Cover: they don't apply the MOD to their BS Attribute, and their targets cannot apply the MOD to their ARM Attribute.
  • Marksmanship Level X does not include any other Levels of the Marksmanship Special Skill.

Marksmanship Level X and Saturation Zone:

A trooper declaring the Marksmanship Level X Special Skill whose LoF makes contact with a Saturation or High Saturation Zone will not apply the B MOD imposed by these Special Terrain Types.

Some soldiers earn renown for the spectacular precision of their shots, but more than anything the military values deadly accuracy even when firing instinctively from the hip. The ability to pull the trigger first and still hit the mark can be inborn or obtained through extensive training or a wealth of combat experience, but it is not something the average military professional can expect to achieve.
