This N4 rule is not used in CodeOne.

Troopers with this Special Skill have an uncanny ability to sense imminent threats.

SIXTH SENSE AUTOMATIC SKILL
Optional
Requirements
  • The user is the target of an Attack.
Effects
  • Allows the user to respond to Attacks (and only Attacks) directed at them by enemies outside their LoF. For the purposes of drawing Line of Fire to the attackers, the user has a 360˚ LoF arc, and if they are in Engaged State, they can draw LoF to attackers outside their Close Combat.
  • The user ignores Surprise Attack MODs from attackers.
  • If the user is the target of a BS Attack through a Zero Visibility Zone, they ignore the -6 MOD for responding with a BS Attack. (See FAQs & Errata. Sixth Sense and Multispectral Visor L1.)
  • If the user declares Dodge, no negative MODs are applied, with the exception of the -6 PH MOD for Immobilized-A State.
  • Troopers with Sixth Sense in Engaged State may declare Dodge from Attacks outside their LoF.
  • Stealth is not effective against Troopers with the Sixth Sense Special Skill.


REMEMBER

A successful Dodge can cancel Engaged State if the Trooper can reach a valid position that is outside Silhouette contact.


Sixth Sense Example

eng-sixth-sense-1024.jpg

During his Active Turn, a Nisse HMG advances in cover behind a Smoke Template. There are no AROs to his advance because the Zhanshi does not have LoF due to the Smoke and the Zhànying is Engaged in Close Combat with a Fusilier.

With his second half of the Order, the Nisse decides to declare BS Attack against the Zhànying, so he will have to apply the MOD for a BS Attack Into a Close Combat.

As the Zhànying has Sixth Sense and is the target of an Attack, he can declare Dodge if he wants to avoid the Nisse's shots.
