What is the longest ranged single man portable weapon youve found ( or modified using the errata etc ) in the game? One of my players and i created a new pc for him this last week and modified a Cadian "Forgiver" AMR using the specs given in the DH Errata and another file ( Armor and Weapon Modifications and Rules ...sourced and compiled from game books, errata, and other sources ) The base range for his chosen "toy" was 600m. We used the rules for Best Quality ( after some very nice luck rolls on background and a dose of giving up some gear to get it ) the primary trait it was given as a marked level of performance was one called "Far Reaching" ( extends the base range by +50% taking it to 900m ) Given it is an Energy ( Las ) weapon we used the Heavy Capacitor ( DH Errata NOT version 3 but the original version ) which gave it x4 range. After it was all said and done the weapons range increments look like this.
Point blank: 0-3m
The shiny bits added included an Omni-scope ( to all but eliminate any range penalties ), a weapon MIU with visual ghost overlay, and it can be broken down and stored/carried in a large case.
NOTE: The primary issue the pc found was that on a Terra sized planet the horizon range is only 3.1km distant at ground level....so in order to get anything like even half max range he had to find something considerably tall to climb to make a sniper nest..lolEdited by Cobramax76
