I don't understand why you have energy blast as an extra to be honest...

if you have the stun power as an extra to your strike power, you choose weather you want your power to stun or strike, it doesn't do both. for that you need to take stun seperatlty and have the triggered extra 'when energy blast 1 is used'. Now, if you want to choose between two different forms of energy blast (such as fire and electricity) I would say that requires a power stunt.

to fire more then one energy blast, you need auto fire or Multifire

Not necessarily, if you search the forums you'll find the discussion of triggered/always triggered as an extra flaw combination to have 2 attacks affect the same target at the same time this is technically how energy field for the weapon power works as explained by Steve.

Whether this type of extra is allowed and to what degree is something each GM needs to decide if it's appropriate for their campaign.

Oh, and by the way, I don't use drawbacks in my game, just complications.

Thanks Farik.

Sorry I didn't explain that better. i meant that you could, for examplee take;

Magic Missile
effect, energy blast [extra triggered energy blast, flaw; always triggers]
Total cost: 3 per rank.

Buy rank 3, hit twice at rank 3 damage everytime you hit.

This has been helpful :)

I don't think I will allow the Double Energy Blast thing.
