[RPG] ny way to gain additional reactions in a round


I'm currently going over the rules that deal with how many reactions a character is allowed.

Is there a way to gain multiple or additional reactions in a combat round?

Best Answer

There is no way to gain an additional, generic reaction that can be used for anything that requires a reaction. However, two methods exist, both in Unearthed Arcana, to take more than one reaction, of a specific type, in a round. Tunnel Fighter, from the Underdark Unearthed Arcana:

Tunnel Fighter

You excel at defending narrow passages, doorways, and other tight spaces. As a bonus action, you can enter a defensive stance that lasts until the start of your next turn. While in your defensive stance, you can make opportunity attacks without using your reaction, and you can use your reaction to make a melee attack against a creature that moves more than 5 feet while within your reach.

And the Knight, from the Fighter Unearthed Arcana:

If a target marked by you is within 5 feet of you on its turn and it moves at least 1 foot or makes an attack that suffers disadvantage from this feature, you can make one melee weapon attack against it using your reaction. This attack roll has advantage, and if it hits, the attack’s weapon deals extra damage to the target equal to your fighter level. You can make this special attack even if you have already expended your reaction this round, but not if you have already used your reaction this turn.
