Default guess range

Ok i played an imperial guard army a few weeks ago and he told me that they changed the guess range weapon rules and seeing as i haddent played in a long time i just assumed he was telling me the truth, and what he told me was that they no longer had to guess the range just pick a target and roll the scatter dice was that right and if it is dont you think the point cost for guess range weapons should have to go up since their accuracy has greatly improved.

The rules for guess range have changed more or less how your opponent describes. Full details are in the fourth edition rulebook. As for points values, well there are many factors in their calculation. Suffice to say that even with the changes they aren't that accurate.

he didnt have much luck with it, It kept scattering just ahead of me.
He kept targeting my lead unit of fire warriors.

Back when i used space marines i targeted the center of my opponets army so that even if it did scatter it hit somthing.

Did he keep targeting my lead unit because he was inexperienced or do you think it was because he didnt want to make the leadership roll to shoot past them?

Probably inexperience, you don't need to test Ld with barrage weapons.
