Rule: Hasty Shots

by: Stuart K Tucker

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

At the moment an alien enters a Marine's space, the Marine may squeeze off a point-blank hasty shot. Aim is affected by the weight of the weapon.

  1. Pistols use the Aim 2 line, Range 1 column.
  2. Pulse rifles and Shotguns use the Aim 1 line, Range 2 column.
  3. Flame units use the Aim 1 line, Range 3 column.
  4. Machine guns use the Aim 1 line, Range 5 column.

The usual acid spray takes effect in the space of the alien's attack.
