Re: Breaking down doors

The armour value for a door is intended to reflect a heavy bulkhead or tough door that, no matter how many times you hit it with your stick, you’re really going to struggle to break through it. A cutting torch gives you +3 on a Heavy Machinery roll, which I’d use as your “attack” vs the door if you ...
