+1 enchantments to weapons and armor?


Rules Questions

Silver Crusade

I see magic fusions in the book, but can't find anything about whether items can have the traditional +1 to hit/damage as they would in pf. Anyone know? Thanks.


Nope. They're gone completely. No masterwork either. Fusions just have to be less than the level of the item they're on.

Liberty's Edge

I wouldn't be surprised if I'm just misreading the stat blocks, but it seems NPC/monster weapons get them somehow. The space pirate from First Contact has a "survival knife +5" and "tactical semi-auto pistol +8." The plus quantities don't yield that amount of damage increase, though, so I suppose it's just a bonus to AR.

NPC stats have no relation to their gear except for the damage die and type.

Their stats are based on arrays and grafts, similar to the Pathfinder Unchained monster rules.

Melee

The creature’s melee attacks are listed here, each starting on a separate line. The attack roll modifier appears after the attack’s name, followed by the attack’s damage, damage type, and critical effects in parentheses.

...

Ranged
This entry lists the creature’s ranged attacks in the same format the Melee entry uses for melee attacks.

Meaning the GM would roll 1d20+5 to hit with the Survival Knife, etc

This is the correct answer. The number after the name is telling you what the attack bonus with that weapon is.
