Firearms damage

Recommended Posts

After looking up the average bullet energies for various ammo types, I came up with this (see below). I thought "Light pistol", "Heavy pistol" were too generic.

 

Pistols:

.22 cal 2d+1

.38 spcl 3d

9mm 3d+2

.45 cal 3d+2

.357 mag 4d+1

.44 mag 5d

 

Rifles:

7.62mm 5d+2

.30-06 5d+2

 

MG:

.50 cal 7d

My list is slightly different, but still fairly close to yours.

 

.22 cal. = 1D+2

.38 cal. = 2D

9mm = 3D+1

.357 mag. = 4D

.44 mag. = 4D+2

 

Rifle 7.62 mm = 6D+1

.30-06 = 6D+2

 

MG .50 cal = 9D+2

 

I'm not doubting yours, as I didn't look up the average bullet energies. I used a relational basis for the damage. But overall, pretty close.

:cool: Cool.

 

I figured an average person (2d resist) would get very light damage, say a point or two, from a .22 pistol. That means 2d+1. Then I just made each die increase a doubling of the average energy and Voila!

 

Cheers,

Otto

Talk about synchronicity!

 

Here's a chart that I came up with for my own purposes over the weekend:

.45 ACP		3D+1
.45 Colt Long	3D+1
.38 Super Auto	3D+2
.40 S&W		3D+2
9mm Parabellum	3D+2
10mm Auto	4D
.41 Magnum	4D+1
.44 Magnum	5D
.50AE		5D+2

Rifles
.22 Long Rifle	2D
.30 Carbine	4D+2
5.56mm NATO	5D+1
.303 British	6D
7.62mm NATO	6D+2
12.7mm Soviet	7D+2

Great minds think alike!;)

 

Well...I've been working on a spreadsheet of modern firearms similar to the expanded energy weapons table that I posted a while back.

 

At the moment, I've added the following weapons to the selection provided in D6 Adventure:

 

Handguns

  • Colt M1911A1
  • 9mm FN Browning High-Power
  • Glock 17
  • Glock 20 (10mm ACP)
  • H&K USP
  • H&K USP Compact
  • 9mm PM Marakov
  • SiG-Sauer P220
  • SiG-Sauer P229
  • S&W Model 64 Revolver (.38 Special)
  • S&W Model 586 Revolver (.357 Magnum)
  • Ruger Super Redhawk Revolver
  • IMI Desert Eagle

 

Rifles

  • Kalashnikov AK-47 Assault Rifle
  • FA-MAS G2 Assault Rifle
  • FN FAL Assault Rifle
  • H&K G36 Assault Rifle
  • M16A1 Assault Rifle

 

Submachineguns

  • Ingram MAC 10
  • H&K UMP 45
  • H&K MP7 PDW
  • H&K MP5A1 SMG
  • H&K MP5K SMG
  • FN P90 PDW
  • Norinco Type 79 SMG
  • Skorpion vz61
  • Steyr AUG-9

 

I'll post my rough tables here if anyone is interested. I'm considering buying a copy of Green Ronin's Ultramodern Firearms from RPG Now to help me convert more weapons - I believe that most of the stats in that book are OGC.

I used to have a spreadsheet posted on my homepage until geocities went Tango Uniform.

 

It's on my hard drive at home. I can email it to you, if you like?

actually 30-06 is 7.62 x 63mm, 7.62x51mm would be the one used above. the measurements differ slightly but so does the performance of the round.

 

edit: actually most things labeled 30(-)0 and everything .30 is 7.62xXmm, from what i can count in my head there are more then 13 bullets designed for a 7.62mm barrel.

Here's an image of that spreadsheet I mentioned, there's a whole bunch of calculations behind the scenes, but this is the end result:

Whoa - I just used '4d = generic blaster pistol' and '5d = generic heavy blaster or blaster rifle'

 

So

9mm, .38 Special, 7.62 Mauser etc = 4d

.357 Magnum, .45 ACP, 10x23mm = 5d

7.62x39mm Soviet, .223 = 5d

 

And go from there
