When fired beyond the first range increment, an arc pistol can hit two or three close targets. Apply the same attack roll to all targets, all of which must be close enough to one another to reach out and touch hands. But be careful; the Storyguide can invoke the spread rule against friendly targets too. When fired at closely-engaged enemies (those in forward stance) the attack will typically affect fighters on both sides. (A shooter is never hit by her own spread attack.)
An arc pistol fires an electric discharge that completely bypasses protection granted by metal armor.
