Dual-Weapon Attack is a combat option which allows 2 weapons to hit in the same attack for -4 to skill, and inflicts a -1 defensive penalty.
The technique of the same name as the option can buy off these penalties.
It was introduced in Basic Set: Campaigns
- Even in a realistic game, it’s possible to use one blade to Beat (pp. 100-101) and the other to strike a blow as part of a Dual-Weapon Attack
- When armed with two swords, they favor Dual-Weapon Attack – often using one blade to feint (or to Beat; see pp. 100-101) and the other to attack.
