Questions on Combat Weapons

Postby Brightblade » Sun Dec 30, 2018 2:31 pm

Combat weapons are numbered, 1 to --- depending on how many attacks a Unit has, some weapon options have the same number ie, option 1...

Example;

CHIMAERA
Combat weapons are numbered as below;
1. Wyrm Bite
1. Lion Bite
1. Goat Horn Butt
2. Raking Claws
3. Scorpion Sting
4. Trample

So my questions are,

1. Do all the attacks have to be performed in number order?

and

2. If there is more than one weapon with the same number, ie 1, are all the weapons with that number used, or does the Player have to choose which one the Unit will use?

No. The numbers represent 1 = primary combat/shot weapon.

All the weapons are used unless the Switch (x) rule is present. It's in the rulebook, section 2.7.
