Nope, because they can only say something like "head" or "arm" for called shots per SR4A. But if someone's wearing protective covers on their eyes, I'd add the bonuses for games I GM.

That raises an interesting question...

How does armor degrade when it is layered?

ARSENAL introduces a bunch of component based armor - if I'm wearing my spiffy Steampunk armor outfit and I take a round that goes through - does it degrade each layer?

Logically, it would, but the way I read the rules, it's treated as a single piece of armor, so it would only lose one point, yes?

Degradation usually goes from outer to inner. The first layer would degrade until it becomes worthless, then the next layer.

Ah. That makes sense.

Maybe I shouldn't make my outer layer my Sustaining Focus for my Armor spell, then...heh.

I'd hate to get a Sustaining Focus shoot off my person.  Those things are not cheap to replace or bond with.

There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Well, don't forget, Shadowrun began at the tail end of the Eighties.  Shin guards were cool 8) back then.  The guards will hesitate to shoot someone as cool as you.

Been ages since I've seen that.  I heard the first one was pretty good.

I thought it was interesting, some of the WWI/II uniforms apparently had a reinforced knee, to kneel on.  Cover bonus?

WWII?  Heck a lot of modern units both military and police will use some sort of knee and or elbow pads to protect the joints if they have to dive for cover on hard surfaces.  There is also at least one company out there that makes BDU pants with neoprene rubber knee pad inserts built right in.

A Emergency Services/Security Company Supply Store just opened up near where I live, I'll have to check out their stock more in depth for ideas, I think.

I already have an order for some Tanker Boots with them.  Only been looking for those for 15-years or so.
