Yes, ammo explosion is a guaranteed injury, regardless of location. There are four things which cause a pilot injury: side torso loss, falling, head hit, and ammo explosion. There is a maximum of 1 injury per phase of an attack with a maximum of 3 injuries possible to be inflicted in a single attack (but extremely unlikely). There is the initial attack, a possible fall, then support weapon fire in a melee attack.So an ammo explosion will cause an automatic pilot injury no matter where the ammo were stored?
Good to know, then - until now I really thought that the injury would only come from Mech locations near the pilot's cockpit.
I'll refit my 'Mechs accordingly, then.
Normally ammo is in a side torso or center, so it doesn't cause an additional injury.
