A few sessions into our campaign and somebody noticed the Hit Location rules are in the Melee Attack Options section of the rules:
Basic Campaigns, pg 369:
It is assumed that you are attacking the target’s center of mass unless you specify otherwise...
This resulted in a small discussion about whether or not these rules are actually applicable for Ranged attacks, as there was no solid reference for this that could be found in the book.
After a cursory search on google returned only side-comments in unrelated discussions, and my own perusal of the attack rules in Basic Campaigns turned up nothing of note, I decided to put it to the wealth of knowledge here.
Can a character make a ranged attack against a specific hit location - such as the Eyes - and as such can they buy off the attack penalties for such a maneuver with the Targeted Attack technique?
