Rule: Grenade Effects

by: Stuart K Tucker

From the article Alien Metamorphosis published in "The General" magazine (May 1995).

Before checking the normal Effect chart, see if the alien or Marine is hit.

The alien in the target spot is automatically hit. Aliens one or two spaces away from the target spot must roll on the unwounded Burke card Aim 1 line to see if they are hit (and killed). Marines one to eight spaces away from the target spot mus troll on the unwounded Burke card Aim 2 line to see if they are hit. If a Marine is hit, use the effects shown in the Grenade Table Effect (Marine) column.

Example: Vasquez fires a grenade at range 3. It kills the targeted alien, but kills adjacent aliens on a 2 or less, and kills aliens two spaces away from the target on a O. Vasquez mus troll a 5 or higher to avoid being incapacitated .
