Default Basilisk RAW problems.

Reading through the New guard codex it seems to me that no where does it say that the Basilisk can be fired Directly, however all of the rest of the batteries say that they can only be fired indirectly (except the Medusa which can only be fired directly but there is no mention of this just the stat line giving a max range only). Did Gw just mess this up or is there a rule change somewhere that i am not aware of, or is the poor Basilisk Doomed to be shelved forever.

It's in the Ordnance Barrage rules in the 5th Edition book. It explicitly states that a Barrage weapon can be fired directly and ignore minimum range if it can draw LOS to the target. In that case, it fires as regular Ordnance and not as Barrage.

The Medusa can only be fired directly because it isn't a Barrage weapon, just regular Ordnance. The Colossus and Griffon have special rules that requires them to fire as Barrage.
