Critical Hit is a term in Baldur's Gate 3. When you attack, If The D20 roll for an Attack is a 20, the Attack hits regardless of any modifiers or the target’s AC. This is called a critical hit. If The D20 roll for an Attack is a 1, the Attack misses regardless of any modifiers or the target’s AC.
Critical Hit Information
When you score a critical hit, you get to roll extra dice for the attack’s damage against the target. Roll all of the attack’s damage dice twice and add them together. Then add any relevant modifiers as normal. To speed up play, you can roll all the damage dice at once.
For example, if you score a critical hit with a Dagger, roll 2d4 for the damage, rather than 1d4, and then add your relevant ability modifier. If the Attack involves other damage dice, such as from the rogue’s Sneak Attack feature, you roll those dice twice as well.
Different weapons in BG3 have different critical range and critical mutiplier, some feats may also increase the critical range of weapons.
