Rock and Roll Edge

#1 Postby balbazar » Tue Jul 31, 2012 4:06 pm

In Deadlands, Gatling pistols have a RoF of 2. Can any weapon with a Rate of Fire of 2 or higher take advantage of the Rock and Roll edge if the shooter does not move or does the Edge only apply to weapons labeled Auto? I was just curious how one could negate the -2 autofire penalty when firing a Gatling pistol.

Auto allows a weapon with a ROF of 2+ to fire in single shot mode (and double tap).

Rock & Roll applies when firing any weapon on "full automatic," which would be any weapon with a ROF of 2 or higher (including gatling pistols).
