Possessing powerful pyrokinetic abilities Pyros are capable of flinging fireballs at their enemies, create walls of flame or unleash a blast of heat equivalent to an anti-tank meltagun.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakableWeapons: Due to the difficulty in maintaining complex mechanisms and the widespread use of homemade ammunition of dubious quality, it is not uncommon for the weapons used by inhabitants of the Underhive to suffer a catastrophic failure. The 1st and 2nd Edition rules represented this by forcing a player to make a second Ammo Roll if the first was failed on a roll of a 1. If this second roll also failed then the weapon exploded, destroying the weapon and causing a hit on the model carrying it.

''Necromunda'' is one of several [[GaidenGame spinoffs]] of Games Workshop's ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', and probably the most popular. Notable for functioning on a considerably smaller scale than its progenitor; it trades ''[=WH40K's=]'' [[CrackIsCheaper large armies with dozens of models and accompanying vehicles]] for small gangs with an average of 6-12 models. The gameplay is based heavily on the 2nd Edition ''[=WH40k=]'' rules (updated for compatibility with 4th Edition and later); with some {{RPG}}-like mechanics added on. It also focuses on long-term campaigns and gang development, with gangs actually growing in size and ability with time and experience.

Although similarly short-lived, ''Necromunda'' enjoyed considerably more support than Games Workshop's other {{Gaiden Game}}s, featuring more prominently in their publicity, and in their ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'' and (now defunct) ''Citadel Journal'' publications. It also had two ComicBook series based in ''Necromunda'' ''Kal Jerico'' (followin the titular rogue) and ''ComicBook/TheRedeemer'' (following a redemptionist in his crusade against heretics). However, it too eventually dropped off the radar, with one official expansion and a second edition, ''Necromunda: Underhive'', being produced. The game was eventually discontinued, along with the rest of the Specialist Games range, in the early 2000ís. In April 2017 a new ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' GaidenGame ''Shadow War: Armageddon'' was released based on the ''Necromunda'' ruleset. November 2017 saw the release of a 3rd Edition of the game, also called ''Necromunda: Underhive'', that includes the basic rules with the ''Necromunda: Gang War'' [[{{Sourcebook}} supplement book]], released at the same time, including the expanded rules for campaigns and other more advanced rules.

Being set in the ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' universe, the game features a large number of the tropes on that page, as well as employing setting and gameplay tropes of its own.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Flamers have the advantage of not having to roll to hit your opponent, but the downside to this is that you always have to do ammo rolls, which means it is highly likely to run out of ammo after the first blast is fired. This makes it probably the best weapon to have the one-in-a-million trait on since it means you ''never'' have to make any ammo rolls, removing the backside to the weapon entirely.

This goat-like abhuman strain, more commonly known as Beastmen, are heavily discriminated against by the intolerant Imperium for their monstrous appearance, and the fact that Gor has been given an official Imperial Sanction has [[ShroudedInMyth led to many wild rumours]]. The first hired gun to be released for the 3rd Edition of the game, Gor is also notable for being the first Imperial Beastman model to be produced since the 1st Edition of ''Warhammer 40,000'' itself.

** Lascannons are, as one would expect, extremely powerful. But they only have one shot, and the chances of encountering something that actually ''needs'' a lascannon to kill it are slim to none.

* WhipItGood: The shock whip[[note]]introduced during the 3rd Edition of the game[[/note]] is a long, coiling weapon popular amongst the more experienced members of House Escher gangs. When fully energised a shock whip resembles a handheld bolt of lightning that can take out enemy fighters with the slightest tough.
