Default Zapp and frazzle

If my wagon moved at cruising speed can my weird boy still use zap and frazzle cause it says we must use the effect we get in the weird boy psyker powers description

Hmm that is a tricky one - I am pretty sure that psycic shooting attacks are disallowed if you move too fast (otherwise who's to stop your wierdboy moving 18'' on a trukk then zzapping the side/rear armour with a S10 melta weapon that autohits :P

IMO - answer is no

Rules...well ill let other players debate that

The psychic power used may be random, but I don't recall it specifying that it circumvents normal shooting rules. You can't fire out of a vehicle that has moved Cruising.

You can move 6/7" and fire, but any faster than that and your zzap/frazzle does nothing.


From GW FAQ:

Q. Does a Weirdboy embarked on a vehicle still
roll for his powers? If so, can you clarify what
happens in all cases?
A. He still rolls for his powers and the effects are
as follows:
•‘Eadbanger: Causes a Strength 6 hit on the
vehicle’s rear armour.
•Frazzle: Fired from the vehicle following the
normal rules for passengers firing.

•Zzap: Fired from the vehicle following the
normal rules for passengers firing
.

I've got a question which kind of ties to this topic, so thought I'd ask it here instead of making a new topic.

If I have two Battlewagons next to each other, one has Big Mek with KFF inside, other has Warphead, and he rolls 'Eadbanger, which would result in STR 6 hit on the rear armour. Do you get KFF save or not?

It is a shooting attack so I would say yes.
