fastdraw [living]
fastdraw automatic [on/off]
Usable by: Smuggler (level 10)
Stat: dexterity
Skill Delay: 2 rounds (4 seconds)
Other info: starts fights

Smugglers survive on their quick wits and reflexes. As such, many learn the art of the fastdraw in order to protect themselves and to gain combat advantage in a world where employers become enemies in the blink of an eye.

In order to use this skill, a smuggler must have an unwielded weapon available to them, holstered or not (though holsters may increase the effect, and will certainly look cooler).

Using the syntax <fastdraw [living]>, the smuggler will get in a quick attack while wielding the weapon, and make the target easier to hit for a little while. Please note after a target has been drawn on once, they are prepared for it again in the future.

This skill will automatically cause the smuggler to wield a holstered weapon should she be attacked while unarmed with a holstered weapon. They do not get the free attack in this instance, however.
