Default Scattering blasts and cover

Right I have a question... this is probably just an open and shut one mind, I'm just wanting to be sure. If you target a unit with a blast weapon and they wouldn't get a cover save (clear line of sight and no units in-between the firer and the target) but it scatters onto a unit that would get a cover save if I had chosen to shoot them instead, would that unit get a cover save... I'm presuming they would but just wanted to make doubly sure

Unfortunately yes, they would get the save.

It does sound a little rediculous does it not? That a unit that you were not intending to shoot would still get a coversave from LOS even if you were not shooting them. Expecially since it came from a gun that explodes.
