A strike pistol ignores the first two points of protection granted by armor against targets within its first and second range increments.
The strike pistol’s bullets contain metals that generate a pyrotechnic reaction. Targets damaged by the attack suffer an automatic burning hit on the next round at the same initiative count. The burning hit inflicts + 0 damage and must be soaked without the benefit of armor. Thermite burns very hot; shots from this weapon can ignite flammable materials in the environment.
