The previous rule says "if called on to return fire from the shooting table, it can." Correct, but you must always take one result, the worse result just like taking damage - so Duck Back.
2. If a character shoots and target returns fire, and gets a return fire result, does the active character return fire? So this can go on and on? In theory, but not going to happen too often. Can it? Of course, but you will find that returning fire isn't as common as you would think, especially playing with Rep 5 and Rep 4. In reality, if you are in a gunfight and not hitting someone or being hit, you keep shooting. Shooting is very dangerous in Star Marine.
Ganaud wrote:1. So if the Duck Backed character is shot at, and it indicates he would duck back, then he cannot return fire. Correct. But if it indicates he would return fire, then he returns fire. Is that right? Correct, But let's say he's fired at by two people - remember you have to target all figures before firing. Can't shoot and see what happens, then target the next guy, etc. So he could get both duck back and return fire - he takes the worse result - duck back.
2. Got it.
3. It seems like firing more than one shot is very dangerous to the firer since it can so often provoke return fire. Like, if you fire 3 or 4 shots, chances are the return fire is going to take you OOF or OD. The first two defenders in round 1 got knocked OOF this way, so my attackers chose to fire single shots, particularly because their Rep was higher. This seemed to pay off. Very smart observation. We had this happens yesterday in fact.

However, because it was the end of an action, they still had to make a Will To Fight check. They passed one die, meaning 2 Marines had to retreat--even though they'd killed all the enemy. Is this how that is supposed to play out? Like they were terrified by the violence and can't keep going?
