Firearms 101: Self-Defense...
That's pretty similar to the self-defense laws in Germany.
Something that a lot of people don't know though is that the laws are just one side to that, the jurisdiction is the other. The laws are pretty clear:
You can commit an offence (any offence!) to avert a current illegal attack against one self or against others. So wether you commit jaywalking or manslaughter, it's all the same to the law.
That's almost all there is to it (§32 StGB). The following laws (up until §35 StGB, so there aren't even that much laws) just define the terms used in §32 and qualify the impunity of self-defence.
But jurisdiction is a bit more complicated. There are terms for different forms of self-defence excess (like intensive or extensive excess) or the subjective elements of offence (the one I like most is "umgekehrter Erlaubnisbestandsirrtum", or "reverse error of perceived legality" - it means that you may objectively have been authorized to commit an offence in self-defence but had no subjective knowledge about this even though you did commit the offence. Just try to imagine a case where that may apply...)
So aside from a very clear legal verbalisation there's much more to this than people might know - which makes charts like the one above completely useless in countries with non-casuistic legislations.
What would be considered a situation that calls for lethal force via a firearm? Does the attacker also need to be armed with a gun, or does any weapon fulfill the requirement?
I'm pretty sure you could get away with basically anything that doesn't also kill any bystanders so long as the attack was actually likely to kill you, and you didn't have any other obviously better options.
If they're coming at you with a knife, and you only have a gun, you'll get in no trouble for shooting them. However if you also had a bat, which would be more than enough due to its superior reach over a knife, and you opted for the gun, the case might be a bit harder to make.
Even if they're unarmed, lethal force may still be acceptable. If someone gets downed and you see the assailant about to curb stomp them, you would not get in trouble for shooting the assailant.
The law does not make any differentiation between firearms or any other form of force. It simply states that crimes committed in defense, so long as they follow those 3 points, are automatically pardoned.

I tried around for quite a while to kill him. Box him off board of Motherbase in hope of killing him, letting him stand at the edge of motherbase and tranquing him so he drowns, etc. etc.
All ended in "failed game".
Just sent him away in missions to let him die afterwards. Didn´t feel as good as I thought, but at least the fucker is dead now.

God approves this
Hussie has become a complete SJW, and is removing stuff like his old humanimals, or similar comics where he mocked gays, blacks and other minorities. He officiated for his tumblr crowd's friends lesbian wedding, and hasn't been seen at cons for months. He's whipped, plain and simple.
Also, the new thing happening is gonna be trash. I can already tell.
- >> #149 , I head on towards the room straight ahead.
You enter a rather small room with a scatter of equipment and a rather large pile of rock in the middle, with your dwarven sense you can tell that the majority of the rock is basic stone, but something magical lies deep within, you also notice that some of the ground is looser than other areas, making the ground have a patchwork of hard floor and up-churned stone. There is a door on the other side of the room that leads south.
Mather takes a moment to observe the pile of rock, then activates Super Strength
Immediate Action (4 MP) – When making a melee Strike or Strength attack roll. The attack gains +4 base damage.
and Hammering Blows
Free Action (Fatigue ) – Your next unarmed attack deals +4 damage if the target Blocks or has any Protection or Durability.
as he strikes the rock with his gauntlet.
Strike - 105 - 14 Base DMG, +4 DMG against Durability, +5 DMG against earth and stone.
Passive – You deal +1 damage to creatures and objects made of earth, stone, or metal.
Gauntlet of the Grey King:
Passive – Attacks with this weapon deal +4 damage to creatures and objects made of earth or stone.
Protection 1 (Fatigue).
The poor golem that was left here as some form of sentry stood no chance against your earthen powers, shattering to rubble before it even fully awoke, however, the encounter was not over, 2 rather large sized worms burst out of the ground as pieces of rock fell into the softened dirt around the now destroyed golem.
Hissing and wriggling, one of the beasts burrowed back underground and shifted under the earth, luckily your earth sense told you that it was trying to move directly under you, meanwhile, the other doomworm gathers a ball of viscus liquid into its mouth and sprays it forth, causing you and your surrounding area to get covered in some sort of sticky substance, luckily it did not seem to hurt you at all, but its made movement a lot harder.
You now face two foes, one hidden and one directly in front of you, how do you proceed?
Mather - HP 41, MP 47/51, DUR 12 - Protection , Sticky, Fatigue 
Doomworm1 - 0 wounds, 0 drain
Doomworm2 - 0 wounds, 0 drain - Burrowed 
"Fenrir, strike the visible worm! Mewnite, Dominate the one underground!"
Seeing the error of what he had done, Mather leans in and touches the remaining rubble as he activates Rubble Rouser
Standard Action (X MP) – Repair an earthen or stone creature or object you touch, restoring an amount of HP or Durability equal to half the mana spent. If the object is dwarven in origin, it recovers twice as much HP or Durability.
and repairs the golem using 20 MP.
Fenrir - Strike - 158, CRIT - 6 Base DMG.
Mewnite - Dominate - 18 vs WIL - 6 Base MP DMG.
Standard Action (4 MP): WIL
Ranged magic WIL attack, deals 4 + INT MP damage.
If the victim is a follower, they are Dazed  regardless of the result.
Non-adjacent victims contest the attack with their WIL.
- "Hmm... A dead end in both directions. Fenrir, come back…
You backtrack to the initial room and make your way down the other path, eventually coming once again to a split in the road. To your right was a singular room, you could sense a sizable amount of ore in it, forward you sense a smaller room, which didn't contain much ore at all and a small bend that also was empty.
