Rule: Machine Gun (special ability)

Source: Boardgame Optional Rules

by: Leading Edge Games

The Machine-guns used by Vasquez and Drake have very high rates of fire; that is, they fire a lot of bullets in a very short time. Because of this, it is possible for a Marine using a Machine-gun to hit two Aliens with a single shot.

To do this, the Aliens must be adjacent to each other. The Marine rolls his chance of hitting normally, figuring his chance using the range to the Alien that is further away. If he hits, both Aliens are removed from the Map.

This special ability means that a clever Machine-gunner can often rescue the Marines from nearly hopeless situations.
