AM Rifle team? snipers

PostSat Nov 26, 2016 7:14 pm

The Immortals AM Rifle team has 5 E 7 shots per base, due all the shot have to be placed on one target or can you put each shot on a different target since they are an infantry unit?

One weapon can shot at one "unit" (which in DZC means one model or base of Infantry the other term is squad) as all 5 shots are in one weapon profile you can only target one unit or to put it differently they all shoot at the same target.

German space magic for PHR would you like to know more?

Now you know why it's an advantage to have two weapon profiles compared to a single profile with 2 shots.

Lets say you saw a squad of Saber tanks (3) and wanted to give them a bad day but had an infantry base to deal with as well. You could fire 3 shots towards the tanks, choosing your targets, while the last 2 are fired at the infantry that will most likely die form those two shots.

No, you can't. All 5 shots per base are a single weapon profile, and Rifles don't have the Strafe special rule, so all 5 shots go onto one target (which is one unit, so one tank, or one base of Infantry...).

As has been stated, different weapons can target different things but must allocate all shots against that one target. So, in the context of the AM rifle teams, all 5 shots must go against one target. However, immortals (which have their machine guns and an AM rifle), can have their machine guns target an infantry squad and their AM rifle target a vehicle if they so choose. Same goes for things like Legionairres who can use their assault rifles to target infantry and their missile launcher to target something else (per base).

With all the advancement of the PHR why did the AM rifle team not get infiltrate?
