Unlike most games it has been decided that weapons in this game deal force damage as opposed to direct health point damage. as such ballistic weapons have a force value rather then a set hit point damage value. The base Force values for different firearms were determined by comparing each weapon against the different types of armor, primarily against Medium Ceramic armor on an individual with average Hardiness (5).

  • Pistol and SMG: Force 8
  • Shotgun: Force 6
  • Extreme Close Range Bonus for Shotgun
  • +4 Force
  • +1 Damage
