Overheats (Weapon Quality)

Certain weapons are prone to overheating, either because of poor design or because they fire unstable superheated ammunition. A weapon with the Overheats Quality overheats on an attack roll of 91 or higher. When a weapon overheats, the wielder suffers Energy Damage equal to the weapon’s Damage with a Penetration of 0 to an arm location (the arm holding the weapon if the weapon was fired one-handed, or a random arm if the weapon was fired with two hands). The wielder may choose to avoid taking the Damage by dropping the weapon. Dropping a weapon is a Free Action. A weapon that overheats must spend the Round afterwards cooling the weapon to overheat.
