Combat Notes: May be wielded with the Broadsword skill, but Min ST is 11 due to extra weight. The chip slot allows the use of a Reflex chip...with a Broadsword chip slotted, even a novice can wield a Robosword like a master! Fighting independently, the Robosword inflicts ((12x collision speed)/200) dice base damage; a sideswipe (slash) adds +2d+1 cutting, and DR is divided by 10. A head-on (thrust) adds +1 impaling. The vibroblade adds +1d cutting damage when used. Against an average person (HT 10), a Robosword may strike at full speed with little risk of damage to itself; at 600 mph, the base damage is 36d.
