    Shuriken Cannon

    I know that this has probably been brought up alot since the start of 5 ed. but can you fire a shuriken cannon on the move?

    Thanks so much

    Well pretty much any Eldar unit that can take a shuriken cannon can move and fire with it. With guardians it becomes an assault weapon. Jetbikes, wraithlords, and vehicles can all move and fire a shuriken cannon.

    I don't see why people would bring this in 5th edition. In the 3 editions I've been with 40k the rules about moving and firing have been pretty straight forward.

    Since it’s classed as an Assault weapon (page 22 Eldar Codex) I would say ‘yes’ you can fire and move in the players turn.

    Cheers.

    thanks for the quick reply, only reason I brought it up was because i don't own the new ed. and someone at the store told me I couldn't move the vyper 12 in. and fire in 5ed. this clears things up for future games.

    Thanks again. Rep.

    You really should pick up a 5th edition rule book. There have been a good amount of changes to how vehicles are handled. Never go on the word of another, especially in this game.

    Read the rules, learn them, and if someone asks you about XYZ rule, you point them to the rule book so they can learn them.
    Tyranid and Eldar player....don't ask me how I ended up playing these two armies, just smile, nod, slowly move away and don't make eye contact!

    Ok guardians can cause they have a special rule for their grav platform weapons and its an assualt weapon in its profile,this is true, so there is nothing stopping you from firing it after moving.

    But if you mean on a vehicle

    Being an assault weapon means nothing when its on a vehicle, its Str of the weapon and the amount of movement the tank underwent alone that determine if you can shoot it.

    Seeing as a Shuriken Cannon is Str 6 it is a Main weapon, you can fire your cannon from a vyper that moved up to 12" in the movement phase, but you cant fire any other weapons that are above str 4. So if you were attempting to fire it in conjunction with some other main weapon, this is why you cant shoot it.

    Rulebook first.

    This question could quite easily be answered by checking it.


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.
