Return Shot [Psionic]
Prerequisite: Dex 13+, Point Blank Shot, Psionic Shot, reserve power points 5+.
The character need not have a free hand (holding nothing) to use this feat, but he or she must relinquish a two-handed hold on a single item or drop a shield as a free action. Once per round when the character would normally be hit with a ranged weapon, he or she may make a Reflex
save (DC 20; if the ranged weapon has an enhancement bonus to attack, the DC increases by that amount). If the character succeeds, he or she snatches the ranged weapon. The character must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed, and cannot already have acted in the round. A character may only use this feat once in any given round.
Snatching a ranged weapon or ammunition (such as an arrow, bolt, or sling bullet) counts as a free action. If the character successfully retrieves a bolt, arrow, or sling bullet, the character can load and fire it back at the foe if the character holds the appropriate weapon. A bow requires a move-equivalent action, a crossbow requires a standard action, and a thrown weapon such as a spear or knife is a free action to throw back. If the character is not holding a ranged weapon suitable to the snatched ammunition in, the character cannot return the attack.
A character makes the return attack at a bonus equal to half the foes ranged attack bonus (round down) + the characters full ranged attack bonus. Exceptional ranged weapons, such as boulders hurled by giants or spells, cant be snatched.
Special: If the character also has the Deflect Arrows feat, the character makes return attacks at a bonus equal to the foes full ranged attack bonus + the characters full attack bonus.
