fast question. A walker, dreadnaught or whatever walker. If you immobilise it, can it still fire in all directions? Does it work like a turret on an immobilised tank for instance.
Beer! Helping ugly people have sex since 1862.
Walker weapons are hull-mounted, but when mobile walkers have the advantage of being able to pivot in the shooting phase to face their target (pg. 72). Once they're immobilized however, they can't turn in place and are limited to their 45 degree hull-mounted arc (pg. 61).
Walkers have never been able to fire 360°, it just seems that way because they can freely turn to face their target. They're definitely NOT turrets!
When immobilized, they're limited to the normal field of fire from their last heading - no more turning! IIRC, in 4th edition this was 180° - basically everything from full left to full right. Now it's more like 45°, I think.
