Expanded Structural Points

The logic in the old rules’ Structural Point system had some discontinuities. No matter what size of projectile auto-weapon it was, the weapon did 5 points Structural Damage per shot. There are many ambiguities in this rule. The rules that follow will change the system and leave no misunderstanding. The structural points for the new weapons will also be given. As far as this article goes, the old rules on all structural damage caused by projectile weaponry is null and void.

Structural Points Table The Structural points for projectile weaponry is based on the type of weapon: Pistol, Large Pistol, Rifle, or Heavy Weapon. This will go for auto-weapons, gyrojet, and all other weapons to be listed. The old structural point damage rating will be listed where it agrees with the author’s logic.
