Title: Range Values
Post by: Mecheye on November 25, 2018, 18:25
The values for a weapons Range is a bit unintuitive. What do they mean?

Example: The Double Barrel Shotgun has a Range of 2/5 - I'm not entirely sure what this means, though I can assume shots on target passed 5 squares will not hit, but I'm not sure what the 2 means.

Two cases:

1) if there are two numbers, that means a falloff between full and zero on that range, so in that case it's a falloff between 100% damage and 0% on the 2-5 range.

2) if there are three numbers (like 2/4/10), then the falloff is 0-2 from 50% to 100%, then constant 100% between 2-4, and falloff from 100% to 0% in the 4-10 range. This form is usually used with automatic weapons.
