    Sorry if this has been covered before but do pins count in close combat? And if they dont then why not. I know what the book says but am i reading it wrong?

    The only affect of pins on close quarters is requirement for an order test (attacker) and reduced effectiveness of reaction fire (defender).

    The why would require input from the author, but consider that in first edition the simple fact of getting into close quarters removed ALL pins from both sides – my guess would be the author’s intent was to reflect the adrenaline of hand-to-hand negating all other considerations. Second edition at least leaves you with the pins you carried into close quarters.
