Striking with the weapon at hand to knock an opponent's weapon or shield to the side.


  • Melee Offensive Maneuver
  • Activation Cost: Varies
  • Beat may only be used at the start of a bout or following a “pause”.


  • Roll attack with the attack TN (strike) of the weapon at hand.
  • If the attacker wins, he retains imitative and no damage is dealt. Instead, the defenders weapon is knocked aside and cannot be used in this exchange (in the case of red/red) or the following exchange, and the defender looses an amount of CP dice equal to double the margin of success.
  • All range penalties are negated for the attacker when performing a Beat.
  • Available at proficiency level 4.
