Breaker Special Ammunition
A type of ammunition devised to pierce the biotechnological protections of troops and vehicles.
- Breaker Special Ammunition reduces the BTS value of its target to half of its original value, rounding up.
- The effects of Breaker Special Ammunition apply only to the BTS value of the target, and not to the Partial Cover MOD, which remains unaltered.
- Each BTS Roll failed against Breaker Special Ammunition causes the target to lose one point from his Wounds/STR Attribute.
- Critical hits with Breaker Special Ammunition cause the target to lose 1 point from his Wounds/STR Attribute directly, bypassing the usual BTS Roll.

Breaker is an umbrella term for a number of types of ammunition designed to pierce the defensive barriers of modern bio-technological shielding (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear). The name references the technical expression 'Breakthrough time', a criterion used in the evaluation of CBRN protection that measures the time until the hazardous agent reaches the body. Breaker ammunition can have a variety of different operational mechanisms—nanotechnological, chemical, biological, electromagnetic, etc.—but the design philosophy is always to pierce or degrade the materials that constitute the target's defenses.
|N3 Frequently Asked Question||FAQ Version: 1.1|
|Q: A figure declares a BS Attack with a Breaker Rifle and Marksmanship, does each impact oblige you to perform a BTS Roll and an ARM Roll, receiving two wounds if failing both?|
|A: Yes. As stated on page 107, if the Ammunition affects different Attributes their effects are not combined, forcing the target to make a separate Roll for each affected Attribute.|
