RATE OF FIRE

Rate of Fire

Description

Single Shot (S)

The weapon can fire only one shot per Combat Turn, even if the character can make more than one Attack, such as by using the Frenzy Technique.

Semi-Automatic (SA)

The weapon can fire two shots per Combat Turn, but only if the character firing it has more than one Attack, such as by using the Frenzy Technique.

Burst Fire (B)

The weapon can use one Attack to fire a three-round burst.

Fully Automatic (FA)

The weapon can either fire a full burst or provide covering fire. In either case, the weapon can make only one Attack in a Turn if used on full auto.

Select Fire

The weapon’s wielder can switch between two to three of the following modes by using a Free Action: SA, B, and/or FA. True select fire weapons will be designated with a slash between firing rates, whereas weapons with two “effective” ROF can simply fire a few rounds with a quick press of the trigger will use the word “or” to divide firing rates.
