Savage bullets again. or any over the top action flick.

"Make this one count"
Requirement: Heroic, shooting d12,
While making a Shooting roll the player may add his wild die to his shooting roll rather than taking best of the two. This can only be used on a single shot that takes the players whole turn. This attack gains no extra damage for raises.

"What is that sound"
Requirement:Seasoned, Smarts d8.
By throwing some small object in another direction you can make an opposed smarts check against a century or guards (max 2 since they like to stand in pairs). On a successful roll you get +2 on your next action against him/them. On a raise he/they are shaken. with two raises you get the drop on them.
Of course I believe in god, Only because evolution confuses the hell out of me. I mean if we came from monkeys? Why are there still monkeys? Dont give me "there not smart enough to evolve yet" crap. Have you seen some of the people out there?

Sneak Attack
Requirements: Veteran, Thief OR Woodsman, Smarts d8+, Stealth d8+
You character is an expert in sneaking forward duringcombat and attacking the enemy from an unexpected direction.
When attacking a foe who is already aware of an attack by your allies, you can still get The Drop on him as long as your own presence has not been noticed yet.
Make a Stealth roll (this does not count as an Action) before each attack. On a failure, your cover is blown and you can no longer benefit fronm this Edge.
Attacking in a way that is noisy (like shooting a gun without silencer) or requires you to step out of concealment (e.g. to attack a foe in close combat) automatically ruins the effect. Whether your cover is blown before or after the attack depends on the situation and is decided by the GM.

Bullet-Time
Requirements: Legendary, Agility d12+, Danger Sense, Improved Dodge
Your character has the uncanny ability to be where the bullets ain’t. Ranged atacks against him suffer a furher –1 penalty (for a total of –3 with Improved Dodge) and he adds +3 to his roll to evade area effect weapons when allowed.

Improved Bullet-Time
Requirements: Legendary, Bullet-Time
Same as above, but the penalty to hit your character is now –4 (total) and he adds +4 to his rolls to evade area effect weapons when allowed.

I'm running a twilight:2000 game soon and I want to give this hindrance a try. Its pretty close to FNG from Necro and ToD

Shell Shocked
Your hero has seen and lived through some tough scrapes. When the bullets start to fly and his adrenaline gets pumping he has a tendency to freeze in place.

The character begins the first round of every combat in a Shaken state which can be gotten out of as per the usual rules on wounds. This is a non-damaging shaken for the purposes of stacking to equal a wound


(not really happy with the wording on this one, any suggestions are welcome)
I once shot a man just to watch him die... but then I got distracted and missed it.

Whip Cracker
Requirements:Novice, Intimidation d8,Command
You instill fear in your allies to have them fight more effectively. You may make an intimidation roll on a shaken ally to unshake them. It has the same bonuses/penalties the ally making he roll would have. (E.G. an extra in command edge would give you a +1) On a raise you unshake the ally AND give them a +2 for their next action due to adrenaline.

I was inspired to make this because in Necropolis Senior knights have to take intimidation, yet most of the undead are immune to it.

After JackAce's Sneak Attack ...

Improved Sneak Attack
Requirements: Sneak Attack, Stealth d10+
Your hero may use Sneak Attack to make a melee attack. As long as the target is slain by the attack they may then make a second stealth roll to maintain their concealment - the attack and second stealth roll do suffer the MAP. If their target is not slain then their cover is blown as normal.

Inept (minor)
There's a particular skill at which you just plain suck, no matter how hard you try to improve yourself. When taking this Hindrance, apply it to one of the skills you've purchased for your character. Whenever you roll for that skill, you may not include the Wild Die nor take Edges where the skill is listed as a requirement.

Big Mistake
Type: Combat
Requirements: Veteran, Spirit d10+, Common Bond
You take great umbrage whenever one of your friends gets hurt badly. Whenever a Wild Card ally (includes fellow PCs) is Incapacitated, your attacks against the opponent who struck the blow inflict an additional 1d6 damage.

(Note: I'm not entirely satisfied with the name I gave this Edge, so suggestions for alternatives would be appreciated. I would also like feedback on the Inept Hindrance in the previous post.)

Edit: Name changed.

This Hindrance is for Horror settings. I'm not entirely happy with the name, so anyone who can think of a better one speak up.

Monster Bait (minor)
You have an unfortunate knack for getting impeded when running away from a monster, whether constantly tripping or running into tree branches. You take a -2 to Chase rolls whenever you are being pursued by some supernatural nasty.

Quick Kill
Requirements: Seasoned, Shooting d8
Your character has received some manner of point shooting* training, usually through the military. Once a round your hero gets a free one shot attack against a single enemy who comes into line of sight within his shooting die in inches. This automatically interrupts the target's action unless they were on Hold. In that case roll opposed Agility as usual. Appropriate weapons are pistols, SMGs, shotguns, rifles with no snapfire penalty and ARs. Marksman and Called Shots do not apply.

Improved Quick Kill
Requirements: Quick Kill
As above but range is increased to your shooting die x 2 up to 24".

*point shooting is a method of rapid target acquisition taught by the military for short range combat situations. it's a reflexive technique that relies on muscle memory and doesn't employ the gun sights for aiming.

Moving Targeter
Requirments: Veteran, Shooting d8, Level Headed
Your character has been trained in rapid response team tactics by some agency or shadowy paramilitary organization. If you are on Hold you may use this edge to move up to 3" and remain on Hold. If any other action takes place your Held action is used and any remaining movement (up to 3") may be taken. Appropriate weapons are pistols, SMGs and shotguns.

please bump the associated comment thread with your thoughts! :)

Could be a Background Edge, Combat Edge or house rule depending on the campaign:

Deadly SOB
Requirements: Novice, Agility d8
If you score a success with a Fighting, Shooting or Throwing roll but not a raise, you may spend a benny to "upgrade" the roll to a raise and roll Bonus Damage.

You can get foes to drop their guard through laughter. If you score a success and a raise on a taunt test of wills your opponent is shaken and laughs so hard they drop what they are holding.
