Default Submunition

Does the Submunition ignore cover saves. I was playing Guard last nights and wan't sure if it did or not?

Thanks in advance

No problem.

The AFP and the flamer do though. I would also suggest always having an AFP XV8 in your list. The ability to ignore cover, and fire on units out of LOS is great.

But only if they're within a certain range...

I'm putting this question here because I don't want to start a new thread for such a silly question. I can't find in the codex where it says what twin flamers do. I thought you would just re-roll wounds but I can't find it. Any clarification would be awesome.

I think the flamer and AFP combo would be pretty good for clearing a unit in cover, I might try that.

Twin-linked weapons let you re-roll to hit, but if template weapons (like the flamer) automatically hit if they touch a model with the template, that raises an interesting question...

And in my opinion, I don't think AFP and the Flamer would work well together. I see what you're thinking, but wouldn't it be best to have flamer and burst cannon? That way you have one weapon that ignores cover saves, and one that shoots a lot. You're going to wound with something. I could flip through my codex real quick, but I'm in class currently so I'll update at lunch.

twin linked flamers let you reroll to wound, in the big book of rule under- weapon type- twin linked(i believe).

Any idea why the submunition shot wouldn't ignore cover saves like other blast weapons? Besides that the rules don't say it does.

No templates ignore cover saves except flamers (I think all versions of them, including some psych powers)... There are some that ignore cover saves, but it comes specified in the weapon (like the whirldwind of the dark angels)... Since in the codex it does not say that ignore cover saves, it doesn't
