Description: This particular tech-mod is built for weapons that rely on blunt trauma, impact and sheer mass to damage a target. Built into the weapon, the steam ram uses pressurized steam or air to release a powerful burst of energy on impact. Triggered once it strikes an opponent, the steam ram slams the weapon head into the target, increasing the amount of bludgeoning damage significantly.
Powers: Only bludgeoning weapons can accept the steam ram tech-mod. Steam ram weapons deal an additional +1d4 points of bludgeoning damage. A steam ram weapon uses charges only when it strikes successfully in combat, but still uses the charges whether it deals damage or not (due to immunities or damage reduction, for instance).
Craft (weaponsmithing) 8 ranks, Craft (technological device) 8 ranks, Craft Tech-Mod; Bonus Equivalent + 1.
