First, I do not really mind, but I am posting this as I am not sure it was intended/designed on purpose.
In the PnP rules, Rapid Shot (feat) required Point-Blank Shot (feat) and Dex 13. Based on what I can see on the Internet, past versions of the game had that requirement.
In version 2.0.8, all my characters/companions (with Dex 13), at any levels, can take Rapid Shot.
It is powerful at levels 1 to 3, but not overly OP since ranged attacks have no damage bonuses.
- nb : I searched the web and could not find any patch notes or news about this change being voluntary or even noticed by anyone. I updated some wikis for this feat as the requirements are different at the moment.
