They are all listed AP -1. Was this a mistake? Core is -2.

Possible.

But it is really hard to say. The guns from GH3 just may be of lesser quality, and thus lesser penetration. Haven't looked at GH3 yet so I can't get more into it, but sonetimes the write ups give a clue as to the quality of a weapon.

I house ruled them at my table to be -2 to get in line with the rest of the arsenal.

...

Of course I also made all SMGs ap -1 to make them worth picking up. But thatís a different story

In most cases it makes some logical sense, the sbd-44 is a lower quality weapon of significant age, the monsoon has a rather short barrel length of 43 cm with 20 rounds stacked in the barrel, the inception is also likely a short barrel judging by the position of the magazine, all things that affect penetrative power vs armor.

Okay, that makes sense - their intent is -1. Good to know. Thx

Well i don't know about intent, *looks at the monstrosity that is the rain forest carbine*, but there is at least some fluff to support lower penetrative performance.

That monstrosity was pretty quickly errataed at least for Missions

Looking at it from the game stats perspective, I.too think the -1 was intended. The way I see it, each gun should have a niche, something you might want to use it for over other guns. Apart from the sbd-44 (which is supposed to just be bad, as a vintage gun) and the rain forest carbine (which makes little sense as written in the book), I think the GH3 weapons achieve that. The Monsoon has very high ammo capacity, and the inception and kriegfaust are more accurate than the average assault rifle.

The RFC would have been fine if it was SS and used Heavy Pistol ranges to reflect the extremely short barrel and obnoxious recoil.
