Default Railguns

When you are using the subunition do you role to hit (3+) or does it automatically hit?

The Submunition is not ordnance, it merely uses the large template.

The submunition is an alternative method to fire your railgun. It fires as a normal weapon, but instead it uses the large blast template to determine how many models are hit. It does not scatter.

You check line of sight, roll your BS and if you score your hit on a 3+, then you place the template. Count your models under the template and count partials on a 4+ then roll your wounds and saves. Rinse, wash, repeat.

It doesn't automatically hit - but all models under the template are automatically hit.

Cheers!

Edit - And someone posted while I pressed "Save"
