A player of mine wanted to play a Brawler that had a kind of fighting style similar
to Yang Xiao Long from RWBY. So to create this I needed to have these concepts in mind
Must use Unarmed Strikes
Uses ammo for Melee attacks
So here’s what I came up with.
Type: Exotic Advanced Firearm
Dmg (M) 1d0
Capacity: 6 X 2
Special: Double Weapon
You are considered armed when fighting with Blasting Gauntlets and deal regular Gauntlet damage when
attacking with them (1d3 M). If you have the improved unarmed strike feat you may use your unarmed
damage in place of Gauntlet damage.
You may use the Blasting gauntlets to deal additional damage to your enemies. You use a swift action to
“Arm” your gauntlets doing so makes all your unarmed attacks for that round into melee touch attacks
and deal additional firearm damage to your target. Each attack will consume 1 round of ammo from your
Blasting Gauntlets weather they hit or miss. *Firearm damage is not multiplied on a critical hit nor can it
benefit from any other modifier of feat. Ex. Vital strike
Reloading the Blasting Gauntlets takes 2 Full-Round actions to reload both Gauntlets. With the Rapid reload
feat you can reduce this to 2 Standard actions per Gauntlet or
1 Full-Round action to reload both.
Due to the Complexity of Blasting Gauntlets they can only use Alchemical Cartridges in a Magazine Clip These
do not modify the reloading times of Blasting Gauntlets
Well that’s it for the weapon now for the Style feats
Uses recoil to hit faster
Uses recoil to hit with greater effect
Recoil attack Style (Style Feat)
You use the recoil of your Blasting gauntlets to hit with greater force
Prerequisites: Exotic weapon Proficiency (Blasting Gauntlets), Power attack, Cleave, BAB+4
Benefit: If your Blasting gauntlets are armed and using the Cleave feat you may roll an additional 1d10 to
your attack roll to hit the adjacent target of your cleave attack.
Using this feat increases the AC penalty of cleave by -1 for a total of -3 AC
Recoil Bash Style
Prerequisites: Exotic weapon Proficiency (Blasting Gauntlets), Power attack, Cleave, Great Cleave, BAB +6
Benefit: If your Blasting gauntlets are armed and using the Cleave or Greater cleave feat. You increase the
firearm damage by 1 size category (2d6 for Medium) to your Additional targets.
Special: you may use a Swift action to arm your blasting gauntlets in addition to activating this Style feat
Recoil Bash Efficiency (Style Feat)
Prerequisites: Exotic weapon Proficiency (Blasting Gauntlets), Power attack, Cleave , Great Cleave, Weapon Focus (Blasting Gauntlets), BAB +12
Benefit: When using Recoil attack or recoil Bash you only consume 1 round of ammo to affect your additional targets
The AC penalty for using the cleave feats are reduced by 2 for a total of -1 AC
Now these are nowhere near done and will require some twinking but I think I hit some of the baseline for what the player wanted. So what do you guys think any input will be much appreciated.
