    Not exactly. They could make a Group Roll, but it would count as a single action and thus also a single attack. It would mean all 10 were successful at insuring one of them hit.

    Now, that does mean 5 groups of 2 each could make 5 attacks as Group Rolls...but it's rolling the exact same dice as if all 10 attacked, but limiting it to 5 successful hits where they could have up to 10.

    So, Group Rolls for combat don't really help except in some rare cases (like Extras with a d4 or unskilled combat as it gives them a d6 Wild Die).

    Hope that helps.

    This was explicitly not allowed in Deluxe, but in SWADE there's no restriction that I can see.
Working...
