Critical Hit Effects

If your attack roll is a natural 20 and your attack total is equal to or greater than your target’s AC, your attack is a critical hit. A critical hit means that you roll your damage twice (adding to each roll all your usual bonuses, including any additional damage from special abilities) and then add the rolls together to determine the damage dealt.

Some weapons have an additional critical effect that applies when you score a critical hit. These effects are as follows.

Wound

Source Starfinder Core Rulebook pg. 182
Roll on Table 7-11: Wounding Weapons. The target must succeed at a saving throw of the listed type (if any) or suffer the listed effect. If the creature lacks a specified location, use the general location.
