Default Ordnance Barrage question

In the rule book it has different rules for multiple blasts and multiple barrages but if a weapon with something like barrage 3 that can use direct fire could you choose one of the following:

>Fire as a multiple barrage with the templates touching in the direction of the scatter dice

>Fire as multiple Ordanance using the multiple blast rules m,eaning you work out each shot seperately.

One case (barrage) you lose out on hits but gain pinning and out of LOS firing but in the other (ordnance) you gain more hits but lose pinning and out of LOS but ignore minimum range.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Unholy Harbinger

I'm at a loss. I read your post seven times can could not find your question, nor exactly what your asking help on. you listed two options for a barrage 3 weapon. Is your question which of the two to select?

In that case, I would choose multiple barrage against a large squad, ordinance against a squad or something with more enemies close by.

I think his question is whether ordinance barrage weapons with multiple shots fired "directly", i.e. as a blast instead barrage, would follow the multiple barrage rules (place initial blast, then use direction die for the rest of the shots from that placement) or the multiple blast rules (each shot scatters separately).

I'd say you get to choose, so long as you CAN fire it both directly or indirectly. You wouldn't be able to use the barrage method of scatter if, say, you were under the minimum range...
