Ok, I am just asking this one out of morbid curiosity. I know that junkers can do all kinds of things with ammo, I have the following questions and I hope I don't sound too silly.

1) Do you still add chemical components for making frangible or hollow point Railgun ammo or is there something else that should be done? (reason I ask is that normally railgun ammo needs to chemical components)

2) Is it possible to create ammo that is both armor piercing and frangible? (I am assuming no as they require different things but I might as well see if I'm wrong)

3) hypothetically, could a person make armor piercing 'spread' using junker rules, IE use the ammo rules for making ammo armor penetrating as well as spreading?

Thank you in advance.

It says that you need more chemicals to produce more power behind the round. Since there is no need for chemical propellant then the weapon needs to produce the extra power. I'd multiply the drain per shot by 1 for each 10% chemical the original ammo needed (like they say for AP rounds under Railguns).

Truth be, Junkers can do most anything, as the spirits let them bend/break the rules.

That said, frangible needs to shatter on impact, while AP needs to cut through its target. Now we do have missiles that don't explode until a second of so after it penetrates a wall, so why can't a Junker make a AP round that shreds after impact. You should come up with some kind of rational as to how it knows when to shred (be it a micro timer activated on impact or when shot, sensor power, etc.). Once you have your idea, figure out what it will add to the ammo (like some electrical components if it has a timer or the sensor power somehow triggers it, etc.). So end the end the ammo will need +10% to chemical and structural components (per AP level), plus another 10% tot eh chemical components, +2 to the TN to make then and what ever you come up with for the explanation (sensor power, extra electrical components, etc.).

If your asking for AP shotgun rounds, that's cool. Like I said above, Junkers can make/break the rules. You'll need to add all the 50% to the size and the 10% to chemical and structural components (per AP level).

What would you recommend doing for a Junker that wants to create 'Dragons Breath' Shotgun shells?

I figured that by doubling the chemical components they could create shells that cause 'fire' damage.

I would go with the 'multiple projectiles' option and double the chemical for "Dragon Breath", but only double the chemical if your going for tracer rounds.

Use the Projectors ammo.

Dragon's Breath shells turn your shotgun into a one-use flamethrower. To do so with little chance of wrecking the shotgun (you cannot fire a shotgun until you've cleaned it, after using one dragon's breath shell), and with multi-shot potential, is well within the powers of Junker magic. That would be the way to do it.

Only problem I have with using Projector is that there is no structural components, meaning it's just fuel, not a slug.

That would make a great malfunction.

On a somewhat related topic. for fangible and hollow point rounds, is the extra damage per die based on available die or base die.

IE if I have a 10d10 frangible slug (10d10+20) and it hits an AV6 target is it doing 3d4+6 or 3d4+20?

So add some. You're the Marshal: it's your job to change the rules as the game requires. Never fear doing your job.

It would be a solid Minor malfunction. A good medium malfunction is something like "endless burning" that eventually consumes the shotgun. And a solid major malfunction is to slag the gun and maybe ignite the shooter. Though explosions are always fun, so I understand Marshals that just make things blow up.

Got a new one now. Ok, if a player wants to build ammo that does damage and explodes (sorta like the 20mm for the MPSW) I am wondering if the explosive aspect is used normally or if I consider it the equivalent of a grenade, halving it since the bullet is doing the 'acceleration' aspect.

IE for ammo that does damage and then explodes is the explosive part standard with the update in iron oasis or is it halved as if it were a hand grenade or something similar.

Has any character had a junker make arrows as an Ammo power item?


I was thinking of stuff like flashbang, HE, Driller arrows, long distance ones, etc.

Not yet, I have been considering the idea of making it so that either the arrow works like a railgun bullet though requiring an extra structural component. But we haven't tried to do much with it yet so it's still somewhat untested.

LOL you made me realize that back in the day I drew this Junker powered repeating crossbow (it is even the first image on the Junker's page on my site) and never did anything with it!

Ya I would agree with Templar's call on this one.
