  • [SPC2] Heavy Armor

    Is there a minimum amount of Armor that needs to be bought before the super can buy the Heavy Armor modifier?
    If a character spends 5 power points (1 point for Armor power and 4 for the Heavy Armor mod) would their 2 point of Armor only be harmed by heavy weapons?

    How does Armor Piercing effect Heavy Armor? If there is enough AP to bypass the armor, even if it is heavy armor, does it then do normal damage?

    Yep, it could be done.

    The player should be aware of the limitations. The character would be immune to non-Heavy Weapons, but the +2 Armor isn't going to offer much protection against Heavy Weapons. So the character would be a bit of a glass tank. Comparatively, the same 5 points would be +10 Armor against all attacks.

    Nope. An attack must have Heavy Weapon to affect Heavy Armor.

    Hope that helps.
