Damage Bonus

Can someone explain what the heck the character sheet means when it says:

"Your damage bonus uses the same ability modifier as the attack bonus + either your level or twice your level"? 

 Uh, I think most players will use the "twice your level" part?

Am I missing something or is this another lapse in quality control?

The rulebook only mentions adding your level. 
Are you sure you're not misreading it? I'm not familiar with Gamma World at all, but based on what I assume to be your paraphrase, it looks like it might actually be saying "Choose one: [Your ability modifier + your level] OR [twice your level]." Obviously, in this case, the choice would depend on your level and your ability modifier.

If that's not what it's saying, then I have no idea. 
Ever feel like people on these forums can't possibly understand how wrong they are? Feeling trolled? Don't get mad. Report Post.

It means some powers use your level, some twice. Look at the android, it's novice is twice, it's expert is only it's level.

He's not misreading it. jedi123 is right. This just means "Add your level or twice your level, depending on the power."

Each power tells you what to add. Basic attacks all add your level. Everything else will have a power card, so look on that for details.
