A few more Clash on the Fringe Q&A

Can you enter close combat with the Evasion trait?

As written, but this is not intended and will be corrected in the next update.
This also apply to the "Dodge" result on the hero injury table and the move provided by stim pack survival.

What does "No bonus for weapons" mean when you are Heads Down in close combat?

It means that you cannot get any bonuses on the close combat roll (such as two weapons) or get any trait bonuses (such as Swift). You still apply the penetration score of the weapon.

What if I have no close combat weapons at all?

Penetration 0, -1 to close combat roll and cannot dual-wield. This is hidden away in the weapon charts, I'll try to make it clearer.

What if I have more than 2 arms?

For simplicity, you still only get the dual-wield bonus. If I do an official four armed race, I'll give some thought to quad-wielding though.

How does the "You're going to be fine!" order work if you receive more Stress markers after it was issued?

"You're going to be fine!" is a status effect that lasts until the unit activates next, and as such, it will apply to Stress markers that are placed after it was issued but before it wears off.

UPDATES:

When on Alert orders, troops may reaction fire at targets that are not one of the 3 closest. This will be added to the next update, but you may as well start using it now. It was always supposed to be that way, but got left out for some reason.

The next update will have several small typo's corrected as well. If a particular typo galls you, let me know, so I can correct it.
