Luck is the odd statistic. It is a combination of fate, karma and, in general, how the universe views this character. Luck will modify many things, and is the most important of all statistics because of that.
Note: Your Luck can be permanently increased by 1 point with an implant, unless it is already 20, the maximum.
Luck in Combat
- When pulling the trigger luck provides higher critical hit chance. Aimed Attacks are heavily affected by your Luck. Also when you critically miss lower luck means more severe critical miss.
- When you're on the damage receiving end your luck just affects chance to not receive bypass (higher your luck - lesser chance to receive bypass).
- Luck increse your Crit Roll

As for bonehead and men of steel:
How they work in numbers:
After all this it's checked how big critical roll is:
Then with FINAL_ROLL you get critical shot effects from critical hit table mentioned at the begining.
