When blowing the hatch open and the doors swing open, if some doors are unable to open because there are units in the way, can I fire on those units with the drop pod to get them out of the way? Or am I unable to see them because those doors are unable to open?
Any help would be appreciated!!!
Like Lost Nemesis says, the doors opening is just fluff. The doors are purely decorative in this case. You just assume the door opens whether there is enough space or not (you don't actually even need to open the doors - your unit can disembark anywhere within 2" of the hull of the drop as long as there is enough space).
However, you MAY NOT disembark within 1" of an enemy model, and you may not shoot before disembarking. Shooting occurs in the shooting phase, which occurs after all movements are done.
Just to reinforce because I see it so much, you may not disembark 2inches from the tip of an open door... the distance is measured from the Hull of the Drop Pod.
Thanks for the quick responses!!!
Well if you glued your doors shut, RAW would say you can't shoot but if an opponent played that card, he probably wouldn't have any opponents after a while.
Yes i know common sense is all but dead people but really should this question have been asked. Your Y generation arn't you, were supposed to be smart, please go insert foot in mouth.
Maybe its growing up with just about everything handed to us so no one thinks about it for a second because it was always thought about for us.

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
The poster does ask a question.. which I will rephrase...
Does the Storm Bolter or the upgraded Missile Launcher on a drop pod have a 360 degree shooting arc?
