Either it's not there or I just can't not find it but how do melee weapons or laser cutters work with barriers.
In the rules it is said that range weapons only inflict 1/3 of their damage to barriers. Thus I suppose melee weapons do the full damage. In Glory there is this airlock where it is said, that character could cut through it with the appropriate tools. Actually I would think that a diamond axe would be an appropriate tool because it is diamond-coated (which should be able to damage anything to some degree).
The airlocks ratings are DUR 100, Armor 50, WT 25.
But the DR of a Diamond Axe is only 2D10+3+SOM/10, therefore it wouldn't be possible to reach once the WT (which would make some kind of hole I guess). Therefore my question: How do I create a hole in this airlock with a diamond axe (and how would I calculate the duration it takes depending on the SOM of the axe-wielding character)
Another question related to this: can the Hand Laser be used as a laser cutter or can the Utilitool used as a laser cutter. How would this work?
