In the Vehicle Combat section of Cyberpunk RED, under “Structural Damage Points,” it says:
Shooting a vehicle with a ranged weapon still requires you to hit your shot using the range table.
However, in the next section, “Aiming for Vehicle Weak Points,” it says:
. . . if the vehicle is moving, you must beat a DV13 to hit its weak point and the -8 penalty still applies.
So how does one go about hitting the weak point on a moving vehicle?
- Just roll an attack at DV13? Afaik this isn’t how ranged attacks work for regular combatants; those have to use the range table, as do regular ranged attacks on a vehicle. Also, bypassing the range table means it’s easier to hit a weak point at long range e.g. with a pistol than it is regularly.
- Roll the ranged attack to hit with the range table, then roll the DV13 to hit the weak point? (Or vice versa?) This feels too clunky to be right, and afaict this isn’t how ranged weak point attacks work vs a normal opponent.
What am I missing? How does a player go about hitting the weak point on a moving vehicle?
