Help me understand Sneak Attack

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I as a DM struggle with how to understand Sneak Attack, because I understand the rules but I don't grasp the mechanics. As such, I can't really help the party-rogue in how and when to apply it.

A rogue can? / has ? / always does ? sneak attack when his attack with a ranged or finesse weapons hits and he fullfils one of two conditions:

  1. he has advantage2) an ally is within 5 feet of the enemy he attacked.


  • is sneak attack "just" extra damage? He hits, meets one of two conditions and rolls xd6 to add to damage?
  • OR is sneak attack something like a bonus action or a reaction. Does the rogue choose whether to sneak attack or not because he wants to save his bonus actions or reaction (whichever it is) for something else?


edit 2

This post turned into pure gold for me and I really really really learned a lot. Thanks a million, guys!
You should really try to read the post in it's entirety but if you want a quick answer, check out

But really: many many many others are writing very interesting things below. check it out!


edit 1: [I wrote my rant when this post was still a baby and 25-ish people just downvoted the question without offering a word of advice]

I have to rant!WHY! WHY is this downvoted? This is a honest question by a new non-English speaking DM who asks for a simple clarification about an important class defining rule he does not understand and you circlejerkers deem it necessary to downvote this.

Honestly, try to justify your downvote to me because the description for r/DMAcademy is literally: a place to ask questions - new and experienced

Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I had to walk to the pharmacy a few days ago, and found myself singing Ripple pretty loud to keep myself chill and maybe lighten someone else’s day if they heard me.

Today, I’m basically listening to every heady He’s Gone I can find.

Which songs have you been turning to for strength and calm during this time?

COVID-19 closures

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Rather than try to duplicate a lot of work that's being done, here's a link to a FB group created to track everything that is being closed or modified during the pandemic:

Shakedown Street Is Open: Sling Yer Wares Here (product thread 3/16/20)

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Post yer shirts, yer stickers, your girlfriend's pottery with a Stealie bolt on it, whatever you got, put it here.

The only restrictions are obvious:

  • nothing political - no exceptions - we're keeping a friendly vibe here and that's part of the reason
  • no blatant/direct copyright ripoffs
  • nothing gross or offensive

Anything posted outside of this thread is getting nuked.

Prepare yourself

<!-- SC_OFF -->

You’re going to have to accept it. There will be all kinds of awesome stuff when this thing ends. The CDC suggesting that any event over 50 people be canceled for two months is just the first action. I don’t want to be an asshole but this is going to be historical event for the entire world that will last for several months. Stay away from people and check in on your friends and family. Peace and Love.

If you wanting to move your games to roll20/discord due to recent world events and need help, let me know.

<!-- SC_OFF -->

If you are new to Roll20 and want to move your game there comment here. I will walk you through setting up a game, making chars, maps and rolls, using roll20 for music or using syrinscape (what I use), discord for chat (and why we use that), as well as recording your session, making maps (wonderdraft) and using online resources for sharing content with players (worldanvil).

I have three years of DM'ing on roll20 and am pretty good at it.

Edit: Here is a playlist I made on how to setup roll20 from scratch https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBwSIBMiBempsZu8xudBXCXf2Q37U0hy0
