Sure Shot.

+2 OCV only with Cover maneuver, only if you actually carry through and do the damage.

Effect: Never waste ammunition, never miss. If you are going to miss, you don't take the shot.

Soft Landing:  Summon garbage truck, dump truck full of sand, or the like; No Conscious Control (only beneath the character when he's being pursued to an elevated location).

 

When trapped on a high ledge, at an open window, etc, the hero somehow always manages to find a vehicle passing below onto which he can safely jump, which then carries him to safety.
