Default Basilisk LoS

Ok, this might be an extreme noob question, but I was unable to figure it out:
Does a Basilisk need to see it's target to fire at it or doesn't the Earthshaker need LoS?

It depends. Is it Barrage weapon or not?

If it's barrage LOS is irrelevant (although you do suffer some penalty for lack of LOS). If it's a direct weapon he need LOS.

A basilisk is a barrage weapon but it can fire directly so you can either:

>Fire at a target out of LOS (Firing indirectly) and gain pinning but you do not get to minus the ballistic skill from the scatter.
>Fire at a unit in LOS directly losing pinning but gaining accuracy by subtracting BS.

Note you can still fire indirectly at a target in LOS.

In LOS yes yes
NO LOS no yes
