If I 'fire' a Non projectile weapon lets say a 'vibroaxe' at someone in my square, how long will it take to hit?

The rules say:
The speed of an NPW weapon is given by: (6 * Fire Delay) / (Dexterity + 1)

So if the fire delay of the NPW = 6
My Dexterity = 2
Does this mean that the weapon will hit after (6 * 6) / (1 + 1) = 36 /2 = 18 hours?

No, it will hit directly. The fire delay merely means that it takes 6 hours until you can use the weapon again.

Ermm, Your dexterity is 2 you said

So Its (6 * 6) / (2 + 1) = 36 /3 = 12 hours, and A vibroblades fire delay is only 4 hours so it is

(6 * 4) / (2 + 1) = 36 /2 = 8 hours :)

Your calculations were fairly far off :)

NPWs have a fire delay because all weapons have a fire delay. Consider it the time you need to pull back your arm and then take a swing.

Keep in mind that combat is not implemented, so any deeper inquiries or theories may be hypothetical at best.

4 hours to bring your arm back and lunge again?

I this should be changed when comb*t comes out

It's delayed realtime to allow people to respond if they're not logged in when attacked. If someone can hit you every 5 minutes, then if you go to bed an hour before they attack you, you're going to be dead long before you wake up.

Thats the realism of it all, If your character sleeps hes gonna die :)

I would assume if your asleep then hit with an ax and not killed you would wake up.

Well yeah, But would you wake up and find your enemy sitting with a cup of coffee and a timer coming down from 4 hours, or would you wake up and find the axe flying at you again?

And you have the same exact fire delay. It's to give everyone a realistic ability to react. To everything.

Will there be no such thing as a 1 hit kill then?

The chances of a sleeping man surviving being attacked with a vibroaxe aren't good, I wouldn't think :)

If they are sufficiently weakened or otherwise low on HP, and your weapon does sufficiently high damage, yes it would be possible to kill them in one hit.

Sniper rifle + no target armour + low level, no race-multiplier character = one shot kill.

Realism is not the name of the game.

Combat discussions are purely hypothetical.

There is no 'sleep' in the game, only 'time delay.'
