Am I the only one who thinks those stats are for a completely different game than CBT...?

I think they do fit, albeit at the edge.

Infantry rifles with longer range than the longest-ranged AC (ignoring HVACs... ::) )?

For half a point of damage.  Edge cases like this are why I've long advocated for consistency in the foundations of the game.  I think he AP/BD curve is a firm foundation, and it would be firmer if it was more rigorously applied.

Personally it is my opinion that if it doesn't do a full point of damage each then Bar10 gets to ignore it.

Understood (we've had this conversation before).  As I said above, I think the AP/BD curve gets it largely right.  BT is a weapons universe, not an armor one.

So have you taken a look at the other weapons that have come out of Shrapnel?

Not yet... waiting to have spare cash to buy more issues.  I heard there are pistols... anything else?

Pistols in 3. SMGs in 5.

Cool... I'll work up their TW stats when I get those issues.  Thanks!  :thumbsup:
