High Capacity Magazines And Dart Hoppers

Dart Zone has a really cool product called the Destructor which features a 30+ round dart hopper. I was wondering how this gun interacted with the High Capacity Magazine Skill.

Personally, I see the majority of the benefit of a High Cap Magazine to be slotting in 35+ rounds all at the same time. That said, I can also see how even just the ability to have that many darts in your gun at a time should be factored into the equation.

Quote:
"Note that gun props able to fire more than one dart per trigger pull or hold more than 18 darts are covered under the Heavy Weapons skill, and the ability to load magazines and drums larger than 18 shots is covered under the High Capacity Magazine Skill and Procedure."


It sounds like the Destructor should just be considered a Heavy Weapon, with no production procedure required to fully load it. Can staff please confirm?

I would also be interested in that ruling for the Nerf Lawbringer. Its a 25rd Hammer Shot, but not magazine fed.

It require the use of the Procedure to safely load the weapon without a magnetic discharge.

This means that it is taking up one of your Enhancement Slots.

This is why we specifically added the Weapon Enhancement Slot, so that we wouldn’t have to make you use the Procedure every time you loaded a weapon, but rather per person choosing to go with that load out. You can be more accurate with Called Shots Bestowed to you, or you can be ready to spew a cloud of covering fire. The choice is yours.

... High Capacity Magazine doesn't need to be used each time you reload the gun? Hot damn.

That being said, something that vacated that Enhancement slot would be problematic, making you have to get it reapplied.

Just gonna mention that, no reason...
