"Cosmic, No active defense allowed, +300%" to "Cosmic, No dodge allowed, +150%" to "Cosmic, No dodge allowed without evasive movement, +X%". What should the cost of that enhancement be?

That's all I'm trying to figure out.
I think you are over baking it. Why can't that rule apply for any ranged attack?

There's one thing strolling into or running at a shooter. Evasive movement is merely zig zagging, slowing down, speeding up and anything to make your movement unpredictable.

Just make the power and apply the above rule. I don't see why you should have to pay for the bonus that is already a rule for mooks with guns.

Of course the rof and number bullets vs contest of dodge. Also critical hits have no defence against. Any skill modified to a 16+ to hit requires a 6 or less to become a crit hit (even 15 becomes a 5 for a crit )

For a power to do this, an innate attack could enimate from any part of the body. IIRC the power is not specific. However, if it is obvious (gesticulation) or a guy just points a finger at you (and you do not know if that is the guy with the shooty finger). Shooting lasers from eyes (a second of blindness or no active defence?)

If I recall correctly, the rule that's being cited doesn't apply to such things as bows and arrows or throwing knives.
Point balance is a myth.[1][2][3][4]
