The following material consists of rulings on GURPS originally posted to electronic discussion forums, newsgroups, and mailing lists by Sean “Dr. Some of these statements have been taken out of context, or have been altered for clarity or brevity; therefore, these are not “official” rulings, and neither Sean Punch nor Steve Jackson Games is responsible for the accuracy of the modified content.
These were collected by Travis Foster c. Feel free to migrate special modifiers all over the place. Plenty of them could apply to many traits besides the ones they’re listed with … they’re just not applicable to a sufficiently broad selection of advantages to qualify as general modifiers.
For Homing, you can’t call the shot … roll randomly.
For Guided, just modify the attacker’s skill. Also, when using an ability with homing, enhanccements the attacker aims, does his accuracy bonus include the full accuracy for an increased homing ACC using increased accuracy?
If so, is there a reduction in cost if the increased accuracy only applies to the homing attack skill and not the attacker’s to hit roll? Um, the attacker’s enhancemenst for a Homing burps is just to push the button.
Acc only ever applies to the actual attack roll — made by the weapon itself — and isn’t any cheaper for it. You’re not in control of a Homing attack. By definition, it homes in on its own. Once you fire it, that’s that. If you want control over it, get Guided. Well, I’m just thinking that, in the sense of large targets, you should be able to target a specific part of the target.
Just like homing missiles targetting open windows, or targetting heat signatures of jets, instead of the entire jet. That’s how they work already, though. Homing attacks use a sense to home with, and home in on whatever the sense is detecting.
For jets, that would be the exhaust. Rules for all that are topical for Vehicles, though, not the Basic Set. I thought the rule used to be “if you can see it, you can hit it”.
Also, I thought if you buy an enhancement on something, it made an improvement. But, if you cannot target a specific hit location, why buy “homing”? It lets gurpx ignore all range penalties! It does not suffer dnhancements damage at any range! It can target things that you, personally, cannot sense, by using its special homing sense. Those are huge benefits … they let you fire a missile in the dark at something at Max range, and you’ll almost certainly hit at full damage.
The only down side to Homing is that it isn’t good for trick shots. Since most fighters aim at the Torso with most shots, that’s at best a tiny drawback. All right then … What about a foe who is hugging another foe, or an ally? Is this counted as one target, which the attack randomly hits one or the other, as it is essentially “one” target?
It’s assumed that you can designate one or the other during the lock-on period. Yeah, that’s abstract, but this being an RPG, “different character” is the single most important distinction to make in combat. We’d be bad game designers if we didn’t respect it. If a foe had a pistol against gursp ally or loved one ‘s head, you couldn’t hit the gun or his hand to drop the gun and arrest the guy, you would simply have to kill him?
With a Homing attack? It’s not really suitable for taking prisoners, used with a lethal attack. When the two things are separate objects with separate HT, HP, etc. Size isn’t the issue; being part of the same entity is. The assumption is that Homing locks onto some kind of signature that’s more-or-less associated with one object.
It’s “smart” enough to profile tell one man, submarine, etc. I don’t deny that Rapid Fire is easy to break. The problem is that if you price it like “more damage,” it’s crappy. If you enhancemehts it as we have, it’s fair … until you start stacking other stuff on it to abuse it. All I can suggest is that GMs keep an eye on it to gkrps it from getting out of hand. The best guideline is genre consistency: How many supers in comics actually shoot bolts o’ power or whatever?
Ultimately, that’s the thing … in games where PCs can get rifles that toss out bullets that do 5d-7d vs.

The real balancing factor is to decide what’s “normal” in the campaign and start charging Unusual Background costs right on the far side of that line. So those rapid-fire death attacks probably should cost what they cost in modern-day and futuristic games, but maybe points of UB is a good idea in a low-magic, TL3 fantasy enhancementz.
