The third edition of Neo-Troops primarily concerns updates and changes to weaponry. Explosions are handled differently and two-weapon fighting rules have been provided. Methods for switching weapons, dodging, melee attacks, and critical hits have been adjusted. The rules section addressed to Game Masters has been expanded to include numerous explanations, suggestions, and clarifications.
The game still revolves around bio-engineered super-varans (large humanoid reptiles) carrying out missions that invariably involve much combat and killing. Equipment remains significant and important. Types (effectively, classes), attributes, and resolution mechanisms remain the same.
