Explosive Pod

The Explosive Pod is an alternate ammunition type available for the standard and improved Narc Missile Beacons.

Description[edit]

First developed by Draconis Combine in 3058, the standard explosive pod simply strips out the homing components in exchange for a sizable shaped charge, giving Narc-equipped units more tactical flexibility as well as surprise opponents with unexpected firepower. Seeing the successes that DCMS had with the explosive pods, ComStar quickly ensured that they produced a version for their improved Narc launcher, the larger size of the iNarc pods giving it even more room for more explosive.[1][2][3]

Rules[edit]

Game Rules[edit]

Explosive pods can be fired once per turn as a normal SRM attack, standard Narc explosive pods doing 4 points of damage, iNarc pods doing 6. For critical hits on an explosive pod ammo bin, each unfired explosive pod does damage equal to its type.[1][2]
