Default quick question about plasma

if you get to reroll a miss for whatever reason (sharpshoot, master-crafted, etc) do you still overheat from the 1 you rolled, or do you just take the new result and assume the 1 never happened? this is something i should know but never came up until now. sorry if it's a dumb question.

well, sharpshooters doctrine doesnt let you reroll plasma 1s anyhow, but yea a master-crafted plasma pistol rerolling a to-hit of 1 does not suffer over heat, unless the result of the reroll is also a 1.

Yeah, sharpshooters does not help plasma weapons.. (The codex says most plasmagun users will die before they become skilled with their weapon.)

i usually only give them to stormies or someone else with a carapace... but i recently got sent my old commissar figure in the mail from my bro and he's got a gold plated plasma pistol so I just had to armylist it as 'masterwork' and suck up the points cost... i cant help but use the figure, he's wearing this bright red tie and extremely old.... never thought it would save his life sucking up that points cost
