Default To kill a foe, I must know...

What or where exactly can I find out what and 'Obscured Target' is (Disruption Pod)

The wargear section says that I may not take anything twice... does that mean I can take a normal Drone controller and a Hardwired one?

A vehicle counts as an obscured target when at least 50% of the side a unit is firing at is obscured by terrain (or other vehicles). On the D6 roll of a 4+, a penetrating hit is downgraded to a glancing hit.

As for your second question, I have no idea.

No, you can't take two drone controllers on the same model. There should be a line in there somewhere about it. I know there was one in the previous codex.

See, they are both "Drone Controllers". Different ways of taking them, but in the end, they are the same thing.

Its like saying you can only have one holographic nail: you can have it on your toenail or on your fingernail, but only one!

I hope that made sense...

If I recall, the bit about hardwired wargear says no matter how itls mounted, it;s the same item (meaning you can;t have two)

Id say its a No-no, on the drone controller thing. It would be like playing Xbox 360 with 2 controls at the same time, which IMO is about the hardest ting to do if you want to win

Hardwired only means that you get the shite inserted in your brains, instead of incorporated in the suit.
