Default Drones. Who deciides where they aim?

If you have marker drones in a unit with target locks whose target will they shoot at. Say the leader had the drone controller and the target lock would the drones fire at the person with the controlllers target or where the majority of the group fires?

Default Re: Drones. Who deciides where they aim?

A marker drone will allow it to fire at what ever target you choose. Since it fires before the rest of the squad, the point becomes moot.

Order of Action:
1. Network Marker Light from Marker Drone fires at what ever traget you wish.
2. Rest of the sqaud fires at target of your choosing.
3. If Shas'ui has target lock, he fires at the same time as the squad, but targets yet another unit.

No. What I am saying is that my Air Support has lots of Ground Cadre.

If a Land Raider dies to a rail gun, and no one was around to see it, does the kill point still exist?

The Drone fire at the same target as the unit it is in. It doesn't benefit from the target lock, only the model with the target lock can benefit from it.

Actually no. Although it does go 'first' it must fire it's markerlight at the same unit as the rest of the unit it is in. The leader with the target lock can fire at a second target if he so wish.

Maybe I am wrong, (Wouldn't be the first time) but doesn't a Marker Drone have it's own Target Lock?


Wait.... just checked my Dex. I am thinking of the Sniper Drones. BoneGuard is correct. Marker Light Drones have a TA.

It happen to the best of us. And with all our drones it's hard to keep track.

Thanks that helped clear up a lot as i was a little confused.

So just to make sure i have got it the rule is it does not benefit from a target lock and must fire at the same unit? (sorry i can get a bit scatter brained at times)

Flounderguard is out of his domain on this one, but I'll take over.

Glad your question got answered.
