Range 1 = 0 to 6.
Range 2 = 1 to 6.
Range 3 = 2 to 6.
Range 4 = 3 to 6.
Range 5 = 4 to 6.
Range 6 = 5 to 6.
Range 7 = 6.
Range 8 = no damage.

I wasn't disputing that both versions are overpowered, I just wanted to show that my version has a tighter range of efficacy. You'd have to restrict it by saying it takes two Attachment slots, it can't be doubled up, it doesn't damage Cover, etc.

Meson is cool, but I was thinking something slightly more grounded and generic, but I admit I don't have a better one.

In my opinion, any weapon that causes damage 3 to 6 or more would need to have some crippling disadvantage to account that it makes even more damage than HtoH, maybe some friendly collateral damage like charging in IO?

Range 1 = n/a
Range 2 = n/a
Range 3 = 4+
Range 4 = 4+
Range 5 = 5+
Range 6 = 5+
Range 7 = 6
Range 8 = 6

Cover as normal, with 6s hitting the target, 4+ hitting terrain, and 5 hitting frame-as-cover?

Starting to register as reasonable!
