(Answered) Slugger SPA
« on: 21 October 2022, 18:30:14 »
The description for the Slugger SPA op page 99 (AS:CE 5th print), only mentions that you can spend movement to improvise a melee weapon and therefore effectively gain the MEL ability, but does it "reset" after you have executed a physical attack? And thus meaning you would have to spend movement to find another improvised weapon after each physical attack? And if true, what if the attack missed, would you then keep it till the attack connects?

No, there is no reset.  Once you use Slugger, you have MEL the rest of the game.

Alright, thanks. I was thinking about tree clubs from the Battlemech manual, which "breaks" after a successfull attack. Thanks for confirming that is not the case here in Alpha Strike  :thumbsup:
