View Full Version : Gatling Blaseter?

With a re-skin and a editing of stats, one could turn the Mandalorian Heavy Repeter into a real mean gatling blaster/laser.

Just give it a miniscule damage of 1-3 and a fire rate to die for (like 4x)

What do you think?:x-wing:

You'd have to make the gatling laser animations yourself though.

Just a comment, but the "refire rate" of the weapons is irrelevant. This is the D20 system, not a FPS. The damage of the weapon and the to-hit modifiers represent the accuracy of the weapon, the power of the weapon and the refire rate.

In short, you would just be boosting the damage/to-hit due to the higher rate of fire, not actually firing more shots.

In case you weren't aware, the D20 system used here is almost the same as the Star Wars pen and paper RPG published by Wizards of the Coast. (The differences come from trying to translate a pen and paper system into the computer and account for "real time" turns, which aren't really "real time".)

what he is saying is that it is not possible to alter the number of times a weapon fires "per round" in this game. if you have 1 weapon in your hand it can fire 1 time (unmodified by feats and forcepowers) or up to 4 times (+1 rapid shot +2 master speed). in order to attack more times per round, you have to edit rapid shot feat or master speed force power. either of which will end up increasing fire rate of all weapons that can use those powers/feats

Actually perhaps you could write a conditional script that acts like a rapid shot but only takes effect when you have the gatling laser equipped...

The weapon doesn't really have to fire aaster...it only has to look as ought it fires faster.

The mandalorian Heavy Repeater fires several white bolts in a turn. Only the number of the bolts should be increased. It's aquestion of changing the effect, perhaps by replacing the big white bolt with onetwo small ones...
that depends on how the effect was made in the first place...
