Ranged Sunder

Ranged Sunder

Type: General
Source: Complete Warrior

You can attack an opponent's weapon from a distance.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, base attack bonus +5.
Benefit: When attacking objects, you deal full damage (instead of half damage) with slashing or bludgeoning ranged weapons. You can make ranged sunder attempts with piercing weapons, such as arrows, but you only deal half damage; divide the damage dealt by 2 before applying the object's hardness. (See the sunder special attack on page 158 of the Player's Handbook, as well as page 166 for the hardness of common substances and items.) You must be within 30 feet of your opponent to make a ranged sunder attempt.

Special: A fighter may select Ranged Sunder as one of his fighter bonus feats.
When using this feat, a character gains no benefit from the Improved Sunder feat.

Normal: Objects take half damage from ranged weapons (other than siege engines and the like). You can only sunder with a melee attack using a slashing or bludgeoning weapon.
