A gunslinger in my party was targeted by a ranged attack, and in response, he used a grit point to activate Gunslinger's Dodge to drop prone. The description for this action is as follows:

Alternatively, the gunslinger can drop prone to gain a +4 bonus to AC against the triggering attack.

Does this +4 bonus refer to the bonus innate to the prone status, or is it an additional bonus that stacks with the standard prone bonus against ranged attacks?

Basically they reiterated the effects of being prone in the description of the ability. So it gives you the condition "Prone" which itself gives you +4 AC bonus against ranged attacks (and also -4 in melee).

  • \$\begingroup\$ To clarify, the +4 bonus referred to in Gunslinger's Dodge is simply reiterating the effects of being prone in this scenario, right? \$\endgroup\$ – RichMahogany Jul 3 '14 at 15:47

    \$\begingroup\$ "Alternatively, the gunslinger can drop prone to gain a +4 bonus to AC against the triggering attack." I think the to is what gives it away, instead of and, also (gaining) or similar. \$\endgroup\$ – Dave Jul 3 '14 at 15:51
