Reactive Coating

A thick layer of advanced nanotech is applied to the armor, protecting it with a colony of nanobots designed to sense incoming attacks. When an attack strikes the coating, it detonates to disrupt the attack. Bursts and full autofire are treated as a single attack. A reactive coating increases the Armor Value by +5/+5, but each detonation automatically inflicts 1 point of damage on the wearer. Reactive armor also works against melee attacks, but the attacker also suffers 1d10 / 2 (round up) points of damage per attack (armor protects) from the microexplosion. Reactive coating only works against 5 attacks, after which the specialized nanobot hive replenishes the coating at the rate of 1 use per hour.
