Game Notes:

  • Disintegration: On any Mortally Wounded damage result or greater (13+ difference between damage roll and resistance), target is completely disintegrated.
  • Electro-Prongs: When charged, the dual prongs inflict 6D+2 energy damage upon target on successful melee attack. Charge setting is activated and set for either Stun or Kill with a non-roll action. Target must be within 0-3 meter range for rifle to be used as melee weapon.
  • Macrobinocular Scope (removable): Grants +3D to Perception or search for objects over 100-600 meters away. Scomp-linked into helmet HUD. When macrobinocular scope is used in conjunction with rifle for one round of aiming, user may reduce range difficulty by two levels (for example, long range becomes short range) and add +1D to subsequent blaster rolls. Game Note: Macrobinocular functionality is effective up to 600 meters, however maximum effective range of rifle is 350 meters.
  • Manual Reload: Weapon must be manually reloaded with a new cartridge after each disruptor bolt is fired, using a non-roll action.
  • Two-handed Weapon: The Amban sniper rifle must be fired/wielded two-handed in order to be effective. Those who attempt to fire the weapon one-handed, or to wield the weapon one-handed in a melee, incur a +5 penalty to the difficulties of any combat rolls using the Amban sniper rifle.

Background: The Amban phase-pulse blaster, also known as an Amban sniper rifle, was a type of disruptor sniper rifle used by the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin.
