Spacecraft & Spycraft
The standard weapon for fighting on ships and stations
Same stats as Blasters except the following features:
- Armor penetration rating is 0.2 instead 5.0
- Damage is 1d greater than Blasters
- Ammunition is 1/2 of Blasters
- Holdout rating is +2 over Blasters
While many people prefer to use Blasters for ranged combat on planets, it is universally agreed that Blasters are terrible weapons on spaceship and space stations. The problem is that Blaster shots chew through ship and station hulls very quickly and let the air out more faster than most people prefer.
The PPG is the preferred solution for lethal combat; small, light weight, very rarely penetrates the hull, but devastating to flesh. Aimed shots are preferred when using this type of weapon.
