A type of ammunition devised to pierce the biotechnological protections of troops and vehicles.

Category

Standard.

Roll

After a successful attack with Breaker Special Ammunition, the target must make a BTS Roll using half his BTS value.

Effects

  • 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.
