In the crew / team building portion of the game it states, "choose one ranged and one melee weapon". The only table I can find that kind of desinates the two is on page 25. Does this mean SMG, Shotguns and Pistols are classified as melee weapons? Does this mean the ranged choices are from the rifle table (i.e. AK-74 and AK-15)?

Might be a good question to ask on Lead Adventure link

Looking at the example on Page 33, a pistol is listed as a melee weapon, so like you I assumed that there's only two options for a rifle.

Are you on Facebook? There was a lengthy discussion on this very topic yesterday. If not, as Norrins said, try Lead Adventure.

Dragon Gunner and Norrins: pistols, shotguns, smgs are on the Melee Weapon table because the user doesn't suffer CA penalty when using them in Melee.
They are ranged weapons, but as they're listed on that table, technically, you CAN put them in the 'melee' weapon slot. That wasn't the intention tho.
If you want to continue this and other fascinating discussions, wander over to the FB Group.

Spotted this at Osprey's Blog this morning:

Dentatus – Thanks for the confirmation. I'm not on Facebook, so having the explanation here helps.

I know some folks aren't. I get it. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Denatus answered the question but I would like to see the discussion, do you have a link? I searched the Facebook page and Lead Adventure Forum and did not find this topic.

Dragon Gunner, I'm not quite sure I know how to do that, but if you go to the Stalker 7 Facebook page, it is Ian Lima's post.

DG, you need to join the S7 FB Group. If you're on FB, ask to join, answer the questions, and mention TMP.
