This is a cheat sheet for Shadowrun 5th edition Combat, meant to be used by both players and GM's as useful. Information provided is:
Combat Actions
Combat Sequence
Action Phase Combination
Combat Turns
Fire AP
Elemental Damage
Scatter Range
Common Dice Pools
Toxins (some)
Called Shots
Weapon Fire Modes
Shotgun Modes

Not included
Gear size modifiers
it's -2 for one size difference (elf/ork/human to dwarf or troll and vice versa) and -4 for two size difference (troll to dwarf and vice versa)

I'm not a graphic designer/artist, so the bits in there I don't expect to be pretty so much as functional in distinguishing between the various text blocks.

Nice! :D Really good layout, and pretty much all the info you need to run a fight... and what troll or dwarf in their right mind is going to try to use gear made for the other? ;p

This looks really nice! :D Great info... they scatter this stuff all over the darn manual, thanks for bringing it together. I'll definitely use this in the game I'm setting up.

Note: Firing a full-auto burst as a simple action isn't limited to one attack action per initiative pass, like other simple-action attacks.  As it isn't changed in the errata, I assume this means you can full auto simple action attack twice per IP.

I've reviewed the rules on firing Full Automatic Weapons and see it on page 165  that "A character may fire a readied firearm... via a Simple Action... but may not take any other attack actions in the same Action Phase."
I think you may be confusing the Free Action-Multiple Attacks for being multiple Simple Action-Fire Weapons, which it is not. Multiple attacks basically lets you split bullets amongst multiple targets.

Sorry for the slow reply. I'm back at this again and plan on finishing the Hacker Sheet in the coming weeks.

Hi there!
You have just made my life infinitely more easy!

I'm a fervent fan of Shadowrun, and was an active GM up to some 10 years ago, when I left for my studies, and then got married, etc.
Now I'm trying to get into it again with new players, via Skype. Two editions have gone by...

This and the other cheat sheets are just amazing as a source of help.
Thank you!

Gret work! Thank you!
But, I have gon only one question. Will you update combat sheet?
adragon202 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
Yes. Eventually. Right now I'm working on consolidating the shadowrun books into a single personal wiki so that can more easily piece the various information together into a cheat sheet. Unfortunately I probably won't be able to get around to it until next summer.
