Plasma Pistol

Plasma weapons are highly potent and destructive directed energy weapons. Most Plasma weapons work by delivering pulses of searing energy and superheated matter that have been transmuted into a gaseous plasma state that carries an electrical charge. The plasma "bolts" fired by these weapons explode on impact and generate the destructive heat of a small sun, and the sheer amount of energy released by the impact of superheated plasma is devastating.

Pistol: Pistols can be used to make ranged attacks, and can also be used in close combat. If a Pistol has an Accuracy modifier, it applies to ranged attacks only.

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

Unstable: If the Ammo Symbol is rolled on the Firepower dice when attacking with this weapon, there is a chance the weapon will overheat in addition to needing an Ammo check. Roll a D6. On a 1, 2 or 3, the weapon suffers a catastrophic overload and the attacker is taken Out of Action. The attack is still resolved against the target.
