LNOE Break Test
A separate die roll needed for many Hero Hand Weapons to see if they are discarded after each use. Referred to on cards as ‘Breaks on X’.
Rules Clarifications and Corrections
- Hand Weapon Break Tests (Addition - Rulebook p.15)
- Hand Weapon Items are the most common way for a Hero to get a Combat Bonus:. Although powerful tools in the Hero's fight against the Zombies, most of these weapons do have a chance of breaking during combat. Many Hand Weapons have the text:
- After each use, Breaks on X (Discard).
- This means that after the Hero gains the Combat Bonus: of the weapon, they must roll an additional die to see if the weapon Breaks. This is called a Break Test. If the Break Test roll is equal to X as printed on the card (usually 1 or 2), the Hand Weapon is destroyed in the fight and must be discarded. It is important to note that whether or not the weapon Breaks, the Combat Bonus still takes affect.
