(Answered) (Errata) Effect of Flash damage
« on: 06 November 2014, 07:12:18 »
I wasn't able to find it.
I try to resolve an effect of flash grenade.

I assumed microgrenade with flash ordnance have a 2S/5AD damage code.
Assume further a person hit has no flash protection of any kind.
That means that he absorb full 5 points of damage (MoS doesn't matter since this is an AreaEffect weapon).

what exactly does it mean? 1 turn of blinding because damage was greater then 0? 5 turn of blinding? 5 point of Fatigues damage?

Had it been flashbang or gas grenade I'd assume the damage is a Fatigue damage and may lead to unconsciousness, but flash don't do any damage at all.

Yes, looks like that didn't make it in. Apologies.

If a Flash attack exceeds the BAR of the defense (if any) you are considered Blinded for a duration of turns equal to the Flash damage.
The solution is just ignore Paul.
