Default Just a quick clarification.

Had a quick flick through the 5th ed rulebook. I (will) play Elysians. They have a drop sentinel which can, quite simply, drop (via deep-strike). All vehicles count as moving at cruising speed for the purposes of shooting when deep-striking. Walkers can fire all weapons when moving 6" (their max movement distance). So, when I drop my sentinel, it can fire all weapons because it can't move further anyway? Or can it not fire because it has over-moved? Thanks in advance for any answers to my newbie question.

When a Walker deep-strikes, it counts as moving at cruising speed but since it's top speed is 6", it counts as moving 6". The Walker's rules allow it to fire 2 weapons even though it moved 6" thus even if it deep-strike, it can fire 2 of its weapons.

Walker rule allows it to fire all weapons. Monstrous creatures rule allows them to fire 2 weapons.

My bad. Most of my Walkers have only 1 weapon. My Dreadnought has 2 :P
