Default How does Airbursting Fragmentation Projector work?

Does it require a roll to hit? Is it scatter? Is it worth the points in 1850+?

It follows the rules for a barrage weapon.

As both a big-area-boom blast weapon and indirect-fire, if you've got the points, I'd say go right ahead. As usual try to fire it first, just like a submunition, since it (unlike non-template/blast weapons) cares about how many models are under it for # of hits. Its decent enough. Makes a great anti-horde weapon, and has enough power to cause trouble for most other infantry too.

Just do not, under any circumstance, especially in high point games where there's plenty of room for more suits, place it on a commander. That's a waste of high ballistic-skill. This thing will be no better or worse if placed on a regular shas'vre.

You place the blast marker and then measure the distance. Roll the scatter dice and move it that many inches in a random direction. The dice that tells you where which direction to move it has four arrows and two bull's eye marks.

Did I misplace the measureing the distance? Is it after you roll the scatter dice or after you place the blast marker on a model?

It's Guess 18", so you declare the distance and the unit, then measure it out, then scatter. So you guess, say, 14", measure, and it lands 2" in front of the declared unit. Then you scatter the shot, and if you're lucky, it deviates another 2-3 inches towards said unit. Or Vs. horde, just guess and it won't much matter where it lands.

But anyways, to fire it's declare unit>guess distance>measure distance>roll scatter>determine wounds.

orion - thats 3rd edition rules.

Now you simply place it on the targeted unit. If it exceeds the max range it scatters more (2D6?). Check the rule book, it should be under barrage weapons.

It's a cool little weapon but I wouldn't count on it too much. IMO it's best given as an extra weapon to a monat suit with another purpose. An as always...if you can spare the points and want it, go ahead.

I have a question relating to this thread Exokan, when you are forced to roll a 2d6" when no LOS exists to the target, do you add the 2d6" together, or take the highest?

I think that it's just one dice with LOS but without LOS it's two. I think.
