Multiple Tasks in combat

Postby alkibiades » Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:34 pm

For every additional Task the difficulty is raised by one step. So far so good. Can the same task be done more than once on the characters turn? So regarding combat, could he attack twice at 10+ either twice the same target or two different targets once? Or do the multiple tasks have to be of different nature?

Page 75, under Dual Weapons. You can attack with two weapons, but with a -2 DM (effectively increasing the difficulty 1 step). Doesn't say you are limited to a single target, but also doesn't say you can attack separate targets. Basically the same as the multiple tasks rules.

Attacking twice with the same weapons also isn't covered, but should work the same.

What would that look like in a movie? How many seconds are going by?

Some slow-firing or slow-reloading weapons should not be able to attack more than once a round. Bows and black powder weapons come to mind. Bulky or Very Bulky weapons (not capable of Autofire) might also fall into this category if the user doesn't have the appropriate STR (or doesn't have the weapon braced).
