Since my native tongue is not English I just wanted something cleared for myself.
In the New World of Darkness Core Rulebook there is a text that does not quite make sense to me:
Extra Successes: The trick, tool or power used packs a real wallop. A number of extra successes are added to any rolled for the effect, automatically improving its results. A massive weapon might inflict crippling harm, for example. Its Damage rating (see p. 170) is applied not as bonus dice to your attack roll but as extra successes to your roll. If the weapons Damage rating is 4, it adds four to any successes achieved. If you roll no successes at all, the extra successes go to waste. They can only be added to any that you achieve. Typically, this modification is reserved for extremely powerful supernatural affects or tools.
The thing is on the mentioned page 170 there only stands the Damage without any other special sign or anything except for the "cross" which say its to be use with both hands.
Does this mean that with an revolver I have a pool of dexterity+firearms+2 AND if I used the rifle instead it would be just dexterity+firearms but as long as I at least score 1 success it would upgrade to 6 successes?
I hope it´s clearly written and thanks for reading/helping me with this.
