Savage World Hack: Focused Strike
To counter this I propose adding another option called a Focused Strike. Basically it's aiming for ranged characters. With this a character uses their action to Focus negating 2 points from any called shot penalty to their next melee attack against a specific target. Wild Attacks do not benefit from Focus.
While this isn't exactly the same as wild attacks it does allow for a character to choose between sacrificing Parry for added attack chance and damage or sacrificing an action to gain a bonus on attacking with out risking defense.
Anyways I plan on play testing this today, but I wanted to share it here also. Let me know what you think and if you try it in your games.
Optional Combat Action: Focus
A character who spends a full action focusing (movement IS allowed, but no other actions are permitted) may add +2 to any called shot Fighting roll that is not a Wild Attack in the following round versus whatever he focused on (a person, vehicle, ect). Focusing for multiple rounds has no extra effect.
