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 is considered cinematic except when bought for Guns (Pistol)
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.
