  • Rate of Fire and Damage

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the forum, Deadlands and Savage Worlds. My question is simple (I think). When using a Gatling pistol, my Rate of Fire is 3. I fire 3 shots. If I hit with all 3 shots, I roll 2d6 3 times for damage? Or am I missing something?

    Thank you very much in advance everyone!!

    The only thing you might be missing is in SWADE on p. 93 under Attacks > Ranged Attacks > Rate of Fire, be sure to understand the RoF rules. To use a RoF of 3 like that you're actually firing 10 shots, per the Bullets Per Rate of Fire table. So rather than being able to do that 10 times (a gatling pistol holds 30 rounds), you only have enough bullets in the pistol to do it 3 times before reloading.

    Hope that makes sense!
