The Spear Crossbar upgrade
« on: May 18, 2019, 01:47:34 PM »
The Spear Crossbar upgrade states that the weapon can hold a casualty/Vector in place with a Resistance check.



How is that used in combat?



My guess is that you use a Tactic to "hook" the casualty and make a Resistance check burning rations to increase succes?

For the Crossbar, the resistance check IS the tactic.

It should be the tactic each following round you hold the casualty. If they don't have the reach upgrade, the Taker's twitch will probably be dodging the grasping hands of the zed.

That was also how I would play the rule.

Good observation about the Reach upgrade. If you have Crossbar but not Reach you could keep it away from other Takers but hope you do not get hit.
