At Close Quarters is a BITS product.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

At Close Quarters has a tactical system that emphasises the action and reaction process of real combat. Cautious combatants with fast reactions who use all their available cover will out-live reckless gun-slinger types! At Close Quarters adds excitement to critical combat situations within your Traveller game, and is also excellent for ground skirmishes and starship boarding actions.

Comprehensive rules are included for ranged combat (from aimed shots to suppression fire), melee combat, movement, action/reaction situations, types of cover (and how to reach it quickly), damage effects and healing, zero-G combat and much more. It includes extensive weapons lists and a quick-reference booklet for all the key tables, tasks and actions. And Penguins.
