Default Re: [High-Tech] Recoil between shots/bursts for shotguns and High-Cyclic Controlled B

The part that bugs me most is that you get the RoF bonus from firing 9 shots. It seems to me that you are actually firing three shots, and thus should get no actual RoF bonus. It's just the 3 "shots" are actually 3-round bursts with Rcl 1.

I might adopt that as a house rule, actually.
HCCB is just another place where any simple system for estimating shot spread is going to fall apart.

One possible way to do it is like this:
When you set a gun to HCCB is has Rcl 2. Determine if you will hit normally.
If you hit roll to see how much of the burst hits. Treat this as another attack made with Skill 22+Acc (whether you aimed or not) modified only by Range and SM and with Rcl 1.
