Shotgun [Acid, Blunder, Executioner, Inferno, Scatter, Solid]

A Shotgun is an ancient Imperial weapon which fires a broad range of submunitions.

Blaze: After an attack with the Blaze trait has been resolved roll a D6 if the target was hit but not taken Out of Action. On a 4, 5 or 6 the target catches fire; place a Blaze marker on their fighter card. At the end of each of their own activations a fighter who remains on fire suffers a Strength 3, AP -1 and if they are not prone the fighter becomes Broken and begins Running for Cover.

A fighter with a Blaze marker on their fighter card may make the Stop Drop and Roll (Double) action; if they do the fighter becomes Pinned (if they are not already prone); roll a D6 and add 1 to the result for each friendly Active fighter within 1''. On a 3+ the fire is extinguised; remove the Blaze token. On a 1 or 2 the fighter remains on fire and their activation ends.

Friendly fighters within 1'' of a fighter with a Blaze marker on their fighter card may make the Extinguish Blaze (Basic) action; if they do roll a D6. On a 1 is rolled the friendly fighter catches fire as well; place a Blaze token on their fighter card and thier activation ends. On a 4+ the fire is extinguised; remove the Blaze token from the on fire fighter.

Discharged: After each use this weapon is treated as having failed an Ammo Check. There is no need to roll the Firepower dice unless the weapon also has the Rapid Fire (x) trait. The weapon can be reloaded or reset for later use within the battle as normal (unless it also has the Scarce trait or Limited trait). When using a weapon with this trait in close combat, it can only have one Attack dice allocated to it. Any other Attack dice that would have been allocated to it are allocated to the fighter's other weapon instead, or if the attacker does not have another weapon they are made as unarmed attacks.

Knockback: If the hit roll for a weapon with the Knockback trait is equal to or higher than the target's Strength (before any modifiers are applied), they are immediately moved 1” directly away from the attacking fighter. If the fighter cannot be moved the full 1” because of a wall, obstacle or another fighter, they move as far as possible and the attack’s Damage is increased by 1.

Rupture: When a weapon with this trait successfully wounds, D3 Damage is inflicted against the target.

Scarce: The Reload (Simple) Action cannot be taken on a weapon profile with the Scarce trait.

Pulverize: After making an Injury roll for an attack made by this weapon, the attacking player can roll a D6. If the result is equal to or higher than the target's unmodified Toughness, or is a natural 6, they can change one Injury dice from a Flesh Wound result to a Serious Injury result.

Scattershot: When a target is hit by a scattershot attack, make D6 wound rolls instead of 1.
