Default Question about Tau Hammerhead


I just got back into warhammer and was wondering if the Tau Hammerhead rail guns (big blast) scatter or not ???

I was told it didn't in the 4th edition rules; But what about the 5th edition ???

Yes, yes it does.

In 5th ed every blast/template weapon scatters.

However if you roll a hit on the scatter dice you could kill a ton of models even those that are partials which helps even if you scatter some. You also get to subtract your ballistic skill.
