Default I need help regarding the firing phase (Rules/WH40k)

Hello, I was just wondering if someone could provide some assistance to me in proving my friend wrong. I was wondering how a normal firing phase would go. He claims everyone shoots at once but I don't understand how that makes sense. At all. Isn't one side supposed to all fire first and then the other? And finally, does assault work in the same way?

ok, lets say its your turn. you do all your moving, then you do all your shooting, then you charge and work out all assaults. then its your friends turn, he does all his moving, then all his shooting, then all his charging and works out all assaults. this way you do all your stuff(including all of your shooting), then he does all his stuff(including his shooting). and yes, this means that some close combat battles are worked out twice in a single turn(first in your half, then in your opponents).

Unfortunately, your friend is right. It is his turn, so his units fire during his shooting phase. When it is your turn, then your units will shoot. Both are turn 1, but that is the way the mechanics of the game work.

In the assault phase, it works a little differently. He can assault you in a phase, but you cannot declare an assault upon him untill your assault phase. However, if during his turn your unit is assaulted, your models can strike back - thus a combat resolution is worked out to see who has once the skirmish.

No, he was claiming we rolled the dice at the same time during the shooting phase, like go simuletaneously.

no that's wrong. you roll your shooting in your turn, he rolls his in his turn.

I got a little confused over who was claiming what I guess, but the principle of my post stands. Your firend is wrong, you fire in yours, he fires in his.

Sorry for the confusion.

Okay, But would player one do his movement phase, then his shooting phase, and finally his assault phase, and then after all that would player 2 do his movement phase, etc.
