Name:  Ammunition Feed Problem
Type:     Negative
Cost:  One (1)
Available To:  BattleMechs
Reference:  BattleMech Manual (p. 86)

Description:
The ammunition feed for one ballistic or missile weapon has a tendency to jam at inconvenient moments. On an unmodified attack roll of 2 with such a weapon, roll 2D6. On a result of 10+, the weapon jams and cannot be fired again in this battle. On a roll of 12, the new round of ammunition will explode in the weapon for normal damage. Per normal rules, Gauss weapon ammunition will not explode, but the weapon itself does.
