Default What is a ordnance barrage weapon?

Is it just a Ordance thats fired from a non moving vehicle? I've never understood how to tell if it's a barrage then go for the pinning test. Thanks!

It's any weapon that has G before the range.

Actually any ordnance weapon firing indirect.

It is mostly the same thing, only difference comes when firing close (basilisk within 36"), so indirect fire can't be used.

Ordinary Ordnance doesn't force a pinning test, but Ordnance barrage does, right?

That's right. Any barrage weapon, ordnance or otherwise, forces pinning tests (unless otherwise specified).

Wait, does that mean that the tau ABFP causes pinning?!

Sure. It is a barrage weapon and unless it specifically says somewhere that it doesn't cause pinning then there's no reason to assume so.
