FEATS

All characters have certain abilities that don’t directly stem from their races, classes, or skills. These abilities, called feats, represent specialized talents that can come from a wide range of possible sources. When you select a feat for your character, it can represent advanced training, an arcane ability gained from a strange machine on an abandoned alien planet, a knack picked up during your youth, or nearly anything the GM agrees is reasonable for the campaign.
PREREQUISITES
Some feats have prerequisites. A character must have each indicated ability score, feat, base attack bonus, skill, class feature, and other listed quality in order to select or use that feat. She can gain a feat at the same level at which she gains its prerequisites. A character can’t use a feat if she loses a prerequisite, but she doesn’t lose the feat itself. If at a later time she regains the lost prerequisite, she immediately regains full use of the feat that prerequisite enables.
COMBAT FEATS
Most feats are general, meaning that no special rules govern them as a group. Others are combat feats, which are feats that can be selected as a bonus feat by a soldier. This designation doesn’t restrict characters of other classes from selecting these feats, assuming that they meet the prerequisites.
FEAT DESCRIPTIONS
The following format is used for all feat descriptions.
Feat Name: The feat’s name is followed by a basic description of what the feat does. This description is only a explanation of the feat, not the game rules defining how it works.
Prerequisites: A minimum ability score, another feat or feats, a minimum base attack bonus, a minimum number of ranks in one or more skills, or anything else required in order to take the feat. A feat may have more than one prerequisite. This entry is absent if a feat has no prerequisites.
Benefit: What the feat enables the character (“you” in the feat description) to do. A character cannot select a feat more than once unless it specifically says so. If a character somehow has the same feat more than once, the benefits of these feats do not stack unless indicated otherwise. Unless otherwise noted, the term “level” refers to character level.
Normal: This entry lists the normal rules that apply to a character who does not have the feat. A character with the feat, on the other hand, can overcome these limitations. This information can help players understand why the feat is useful. If not having the feat causes no particular drawback, this entry is absent.
Special: Additional unusual facts about the feat.


Adaptive Fighting (Combat)
Edit


You can adjust your fighting style to match specific conditions during combat.
Prerequisites: Three or more combat feats.
Benefit: Select three combat feats that you do not have but whose prerequisites you meet. Once per day as a move action, you can gain the benefit of one of these feats for 1 minute. Each time you gain a level, you can replace one of these three selected feats with a different feat that you don’t have but meet the prerequisites for.

Edit

Advanced Melee Weapon Proficiency (Combat) Edit


You know how to use advanced melee weapons. Prerequisites: Proficiency in basic melee weapons.
Benefit: You gain proficiency in advanced melee weapons

Agile Casting Edit

You can move, cast a spell, and move again before foes react.
Prerequisites: Key ability score 15, Dex 15, Mobility, caster level 4th.
Benefit: As a full action, you can move up to your speed and cast a single spell with a casting time of one standard action or less at any point during your movement. If you have a supernatural ability that can be activated as a standard action or less, you can instead use that ability at any point during your movement.
Normal: You can move only before or after casting a spell, not both.

Amplified Glitch (Combat) Edit


You can create sudden distractions with technological devices.
Prerequisites: Computers 3 ranks, Intimidate 3 ranks.
Benefit: As a standard action, you can wirelessly introduce a fast-acting virus into nearby technological devices to briefly cause them to malfunction in loud, surprising ways. You can use this ability on one target creature per character level, no two of which can be more than 30 feet apart. Each target must either be carrying technological devices or be within sight and hearing of such devices. While the locations of such devices are up to the GM, most public spaces (aside from technologically underdeveloped areas) contain enough technology for this feat to function. Your glitch causes alarms to go off, automated devices to spin and flail, readouts to flash brightly, and so on. With a successful Computers check (DC = 15 + 1 per target + 1-1/2 × the CR of the highest-CR target), all targets are shaken for 1 round, plus 1 additional round for every 5 by which your result exceeds the DC. Once you have targeted a creature with this feat, that foe is immune to this ability for 24 hours.

Antagonize Edit

You know how to make foes extremely angry with you.
Prerequisites: Diplomacy 5 ranks, Intimidate 5 ranks.
Benefit: As a standard action, you can antagonize a foe that can see and hear you by attempting a Diplomacy or Intimidate check (DC = 10 + your opponent’s total Sense Motive skill bonus, or 15 + 1-1/2 × the opponent’s CR, whichever is higher). If you succeed, the foe is off-target and takes a –2 penalty to all skill checks for 1 round plus 1 additional round for every 5 by which your result exceeds the DC, or until it makes an attack against you, forces you to attempt a saving throw, or damages you (whichever comes first). Once you have attempted to antagonize a foe, that foe is immune to this ability for 24 hours. This is a language-dependent ability.


Barricade (Combat)
Edit


You are adept at creating quick, temporary cover.
Prerequisites: Engineering 1 rank.
Benefit: As a move action, you can stack and reinforce objects that are too small or too fragile to provide cover into a single square of adjacent cover. The GM has discretion over whether enough such objects are nearby to allow you to use this ability, but most urban and wilderness settings not specifically described as empty or barren have enough such material to allow at least one such temporary barricade to be built. The barricade grants partial cover against attacks with line of effect that pass through it. If the barricade is in a square that already granted partial cover, it instead grants normal cover. The barricade is temporary and not particularly durable. When determining its hardness and Hit Points, treat it as a piece of equipment with an item level equal to half your total ranks in Engineering (minimum 1st level). Additionally, once it or a creature adjacent to it is hit by an attack, the barricade collapses at the beginning of your turn in 1d4 rounds (unless the barricade is destroyed completely by the attack). There isn’t normally enough material for you to build a second barricade in exactly the same space unless you are in a particularly crowded area (as determined by the GM).


Basic Melee Weapon Proficiency (Combat)
Edit

Bodyguard (Combat)
Edit


You can attempt to ward off attacks that target nearby allies.
Benefit: As a reaction when an adjacent ally is attacked, you can grant that ally a +2 circumstance bonus to its AC against that attack. If you do so, you take a –2 penalty to your own Armor Class until the beginning of your next turn.

Cleave (Combat) Edit


You can strike two adjacent foes with a single swing.
Prerequisites: Str 13, base attack bonus +1.
Benefit: As a standard action, you can make a single melee attack against a foe within reach. If you hit, you deal damage normally and can make an additional melee attack (using your full base attack bonus) against a foe that is adjacent to the first and also within reach. You can make only one additional attack per round with this feat. When you use this feat, you take a –2 penalty to your Armor Class until your next turn.

Benefit: Choose two 0-level mystic spells and one 1st-level mystic spell. You can cast the 0-level spells at will and the 1st-level spell once per day for every 3 character levels you have. Your caster level is equal to your character level, and the key ability score for these spells is Wisdom. If you later gain levels in mystic, you lose the benefits of this feat and can replace it with either Spell Focus or Spell Penetration.

Coordinated Shot (Combat) Edit


You can maneuver a foe to be in the direct line of an ally’s fire.
Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +1.
Benefit: When you are threatening a foe with a melee weapon, any ally that has line of sight to that foe without you granting that foe cover gains a +1 bonus to ranged attack rolls against that foe.

Deadly Aim (Combat) Edit


Your can strike your enemies’ weak points and deal more damage.
Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +1.
Benefit: When you take the attack or full attack action with weapons (including a solarian’s solar manifestation, but not spells or other special abilities of any kind), you can take a –2 penalty to your attack rolls. If you do, those attacks deal additional damage equal to half your base attack bonus (minimum 1).

Deflect Projectiles (Combat) Edit

You can use your melee weapon to deflect attacks.

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +8.

Benefit: When you would be hit by a ranged attack from a weapon or spell that deals energy or kinetic damage, you can spend 1 Resolve Point as a reaction to make an attack roll with a nonarchaic melee weapon that deals the same general category of damage (energy or kinetic) with a +5 bonus. If your attack roll is higher than the attack roll that hit you, you deflect the attack with your weapon, and it misses. This doesn’t work against area attacks, even against area attacks that have attack rolls like blast weapons, and you can’t use this reaction if you aren’t capable of making an attack with an appropriate weapon.

Diehard Edit

You are especially hard to kill. Your wounds quickly stabilize when you’re grievously wounded.

Benefit: When you are dying, you can spend the required Resolve Points to stabilize and 1 Resolve Point to stay in the fight (regaining 1 Hit Point) in the same round.

You know how to dive out of the area of an effect. D

Prerequisites: Base Reflex save bonus +2. D

Benefit: When you attempt a Reflex save against an area attack or area effect, you can fall prone in an adjacent square and roll that Reflex save twice (taking the better result of the two). If you were in a threatened space, this movement provokes attacks of opportunity normally.

Diversion Edit

You can draw attention to yourself, allowing your allies to slip away. D

Benefit: When you successfully use Bluff to create a distraction, you can allow an ally to attempt a Stealth check to hide (instead of attempting to hide yourself). You can attempt to allow multiple allies to use Stealth to hide, but you take a –5 penalty to your Bluff check for every ally after the first, and on a failed check no ally can attempt to hide. D Normal: Using Bluff to create a distraction allows only you to attempt a Stealth check to hide.

Drag Down (Combat) Edit

You are skilled at bringing your opponent down with you when you are knocked prone. D

Benefit: Whenever an opponent successfully uses the trip combat maneuver against you, you can attempt to trip an adjacent opponent as a reaction.

Enhanced Resistance Edit

You have trained your body to resist a particular type of damage. D

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +4. D

Benefit: Choose either kinetic damage or one of acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic. If you choose kinetic damage, you gain damage reduction equal to your base attack bonus.

Fast Talk Edit

You can baffle a foe with chatter to disguise the start of battle. D

Prerequisites: Bluff 5 ranks. D

Benefit: You can distract a creature with a confusing barrage of words, causing it to be surprised at the beginning of combat. You can use this ability only on a creature you are able to converse with (it must be able to see or hear you and understand your words) prior to the beginning of combat, and you must continue to converse with it until combat begins. You can’t use this ability if you are the one to instigate combat or if you are unaware at the start of combat. When the GM declares that combat has begun, but before initiative is rolled, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to attempt a Bluff check against a single creature that this ability can affect. The DC is equal to 15 + the target’s total Perception skill bonus, or 20 + 1-1/2 × the target’s CR, whichever is higher. If your check is successful, the target creature is considered unaware at the start of combat, allowing other creatures (including yourself) to act in a surprise round. Once you have attempted to use this ability on a creature, whether or not you succeed, it is immune to this ability for 24 hours.

Fleet (Combat) Edit

You are faster than most. D

Benefit: While you are wearing light or no armor, your land speed increases by 10 feet. When you are encumbered, your land speed instead increases by only 5 feet. When you are overburdened, your speed is reduced to 10 feet.

Benefit: The DC of spells you cast increases by 1. At 11th level, the DC of your spells instead increases by 2, and at 17th level, the DC of spells you cast instead increases by 3. This bonus does not apply to spell-like abilities.

Spell Penetration Edit

Your spells break through spell resistance more easily than those of other spellcasters.

Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to caster level checks to overcome a creature’s spell resistance (see page 265).

Spellbane Edit

Your mind and body are fortified against magic.

Prerequisites: Unable to cast spells or use spell-like abilities.

Benefit: You gain a +2 insight bonus to saving throws against spells and spell-like abilities. If you ever gain the ability to cast spells or use spell-like abilities, you lose the benefits of this feat and can replace it with Great Fortitude, Lightning Reflexes, or Iron Will, or the improved version of one of those feats if you meet its prerequisites.

Spring Attack (Combat) Edit

You can deftly move up to a foe, strike, and withdraw before it can react.

Prerequisites: Dex 15, Mobility, base attack bonus +4.

Benefit: As a full action, you can move up to your speed and make a single melee attack or combat maneuver without provoking any attacks of opportunity from the target of your attack. You can move both before and after the attack, but you must move at least 10 feet before the attack, and the total distance that you move cannot be greater than your speed. You cannot use this ability to attack a foe that is adjacent to you at the start of your turn. If you have the trick attack class feature, you can take your movement from trick attack at any time during a trick attack with a melee weapon (instead of only before), without provoking any attacks of opportunity from the target of your attack. D Normal: You can move only before or after an attack, not both.

Spry Cover (Combat) Edit

You can use covering fire to make it easier for your ally to move. D

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +1. D

Benefit: Instead of the usual benefits of covering fire, you can use covering fire to grant an ally a +4 bonus to her next Acrobatics check to tumble before the end of your next turn.

Stand Still (Combat) Edit

You can stop foes that try to move past you. D

Benefit: When a foe provokes an attack of opportunity by leaving a square you threaten, you can attempt a melee attack as a reaction against that foe’s Kinetic Armor Class + 8. If you’re successful, the enemy cannot take any further movement for the rest of its turn. The enemy can still take the rest of its actions, but cannot leave that square.

Step Up (Combat) Edit

You can close the distance when a foe tries to move away. D

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +1. D

Benefit: Whenever an adjacent foe attempts to take a guarded step away from you, you can also take a guarded step as a reaction as long as you end up adjacent to the foe that triggered this ability.

Step Up and Strike (Combat) Edit

When a foe tries to move away, you can follow and make an attack of opportunity. D

Prerequisites: Dex 13, Step Up, base attack bonus +6. D

Benefit: When using the Step Up feat to follow an adjacent foe, you can move up to 10 feet. You can also either make an attack of opportunity against the foe, or wait to see if the foe provokes another attack of opportunity at any point before the end of its turn. Either way, this attack of opportunity does not count toward the number of actions you can usually take each round; it is part of the Step Up reaction.

Suppressive Fire (Combat) Edit

You can use automatic weapons to create a cone of covering fire or harrying fire. D

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +1, proficiency with heavy weapons. D

Benefit: As a full action, you can use a ranged weapon with the automatic weapon property to provide covering fire or harrying fire in a cone with a range equal to half the weapon’s range increment. You must expend 10 charges or rounds of ammunition to use this ability. Decide if you are providing covering fire or harrying fire. Make a single ranged attack roll with a +4 bonus, and compare it to the AC of all creatures in the area. Any creature with an AC equal to or less than your attack roll is affected by the selected effect. If you select covering fire, choose a single ally that gains the benefit of the covering fire bonus to its AC.

Strike Back (Combat) Edit

You can strike at foes that attack you using their superior reach by targeting their limbs or weapons as they come at you. D

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +1. D

Benefit: You can ready an action to make a melee attack against a foe that attacks you with a melee weapon, even if that foe isn’t within your reach.

Swimming Master Edit

You can swim as well as a fish. D

Prerequisites: Athletics 5 ranks. D

Benefit: You gain a swim speed equal to your land speed.

Technomantic Dabbler Edit

You dabble with coding in the language of magic. D

Prerequisites: Intelligence 15, character level 5th, no levels in technomancer. D

Benefit: Choose two 0-level technomancer spells and one 1st-level technomancer spell. You can cast the 0-level spells at will and the 1st-level spell once per day for every 3 character levels you have. Your caster level is equal to your character level, and the key ability score for these spells is Intelligence. If you later gain levels in technomancer, you lose the benefits of this feat and can replace it with either Spell Focus or Spell Penetration.

Toughness Edit

You have enhanced physical resilience, and harsh conditions or long exertions don’t easily tire you. D

Benefit: For every character level you have (and whenever you gain a new level), you gain 1 Stamina Point. In addition, you gain a +4 bonus to Constitution checks to continue running, to avoid damage from a forced march, to hold your breath, and to avoid damage from starvation or thirst. You also gain a +4 bonus to Fortitude saving throws to avoid taking damage from hot or cold environments, to withstand the harmful effects of thick and thin atmospheres, to avoid choking when breathing in heavy smoke, and to avoid fatigue caused by sleep deprivation.

Unfriendly Fire (Combat) Edit

You can trick foes into firing at an unintended target. D

Prerequisites: Bluff 5 ranks. D

Benefit: As a reaction when an attacker makes a ranged attack against you and misses, you can attempt a Bluff check to redirect the attack toward a different target. The new target must be adjacent to you and within line of sight and line of effect of the original attacker. The DC for this check is equal to either 10 + the attacker’s total Sense Motive skill bonus, or 15 + 1-1/2 × the attacker’s CR, whichever is greater. You can’t take 10 on this check. If you succeed, the original attacker rerolls the attack roll (see page 243) with the same bonuses against the appropriate Armor Class of the new target. Once a creature has observed you use this feat, even if that creature is neither the attacker nor the new target, you can’t use this feat to attempt to redirect attacks from that creature for 24 hours.

Veiled Threat Edit

You can be so subtle not even the people you threaten are entirely sure you threatened them. D

Prerequisites: Cha 15, Intimidate 1 rank. D

Benefit: When you successfully use the Intimidate skill to bully a creature, after the duration of its helpful attitude ends, its attitude toward you becomes indifferent rather than hostile.

Versatile Focus (Combat) Edit

Your accuracy applies to all weapons with which you are proficient. D

Prerequisites: Weapon Focus (any). D

Benefit: The benefits of Weapon Focus extend to all weapons with which you are proficient.

Versatile Specialization (Combat) Edit

You know how to get full value out of weapon types your class doesn’t normally use. D

Prerequisites: Weapon Specialization, character level 3rd. D

Benefit: You gain specialization (see page 243) in all weapons with which you are proficient that can be selected with Weapon Specialization.

Weapon Focus (Combat) Edit

You have increased training in a particular weapon type, making it easier to hit your target.

Prerequisites: Proficiency with selected weapon type.


Benefit: Chose one weapon type (small arms, longarms, heavy weapons, etc.). You gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls with that weapon type. If your base attack bonus is at least 3 lower than your character level (or your mechanic’s class level, if you are a drone), you gain a +2 bonus instead.

Weapon Specialization (Combat) Edit

You know how to get the full damage out of a weapon type your class doesn’t normally use.

Prerequisites: Character level 3rd, proficiency with selected weapon type.


Benefit: Choose one weapon type (small arms, longarms, heavy weapons, etc.). You gain specialization in that weapon type, which means you add your character level to damage with the selected weapon type, or half your character level for small arms or operative melee weapons. You can never have specialization in grenades.
