Also, Defiance has layers of morale, so you can see everything from the initial shock of the trooper, to the breakdown of discipline in his squad, to the point where the army itself becomes so dismayed by the losses incurred that it quits the field- none of this fight-to-the-last-man stuff (unless you decide to ignore morale for the scenario).

Also worth noting are the Stun and Terror effects for non-physical attacks, and rules for stuff that can shoot through walls without crossing the intervening space.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Reader Big Mean Elf Inactive Member wonders:

In your opinion, what is the best ruleset currently on the market for modern combat in a skirmish style, that could be used/adapted for playing horror or near-future science fiction games?
Chain Reaction

Fast paced and loaded with rules for zombies, machine guns, monsters, etc.

WarEngine

Still rather fast, but a bit weak in the vehicles dept - yet you can make your own stats up for almost anything.
