Default Blast Wpns and Scatter Question?

Somewhere along the lines when 5th edition came out I was told or read that if a model infantry or vehicle fires a blast wpn but has moved then the shot scatters the full 2d6. I was re reading the rules last night and cannot seem to find this anywhere. So how does it work if the model has moved for both infantry and vehicles for firing blast wpns if they moved? Also is it diefferent for Ordance wpns or is it the same?

The full 2D6" is for Barrage and Guess Range weapons or specifically stated weapons like the Orbital Bombardment. Otherwise it's 2D6" - BS.

As far as I know, the general rule is that the shot scatters 2D6 - [minus] Balistic Skill. The only general exception I have found is when firing barrage weapons (ordinance or normal) indirect when you don't have Line of Sight to the target. Then the scatter is the full 2D6.

So a defiler firing his battlecannon, Ordance, would always scatter 2d6 minus its Ballistic skill then....hmmm I think I had the woll pulled over my eyes then.

Not always. Only if you had Line of sigth.

Like TopBanana said, if you have no line of sight and simply guessing it scatters 2d6 with no modifier.

I don't think Defilers can fire indirect anymore (in which case it's always 2d6 - scatter), but I'm not sure.

Defiler is equipped with a Battle Cannon which needs LoS thus making it 2D6 - BS
