after playing my first games of 40k i have a technical question regarding number of attacks,.
note: i understand the copywrite rules and will try my hardest to not break them, bare with me this is a difficult question to pose.
casestudy unit x:
unit x shows as having 2 attacks on his chart his codex.
unit x is equiped with an Assault 2 weapon.
when in ranged combat, how many attacks/shots does unit x have?
-2? the assault 2 overides all others?
-4? 2 on the profile x2 on the assault weapon?
when in close combat, how many attacks does unit x have?(ignoring modyfiers like charge etc)
- 2 as shown on his profile?
- 1 because he has no special mention of close combat weapons?
i guess one fo the overiding questions here is, what do the number of attacks mean on the profile?
- ranged only?
- close combat only?
- base number for both, then modyfiers are added in eitehr scenario?
your help is greatly appreciated!
In all other situations, a gun only fires as often as the profile says (so assault 2 will always fire 2 times), and models will always receive at least the amount of attacks on their profile in close combat, plus any modifiers (2x CCW, charging, etc).
