Ok my question about cover saves is this. When a shooting unit is 2" (or less) inside the area terrain anything they shoot at doesn't get a cover save since they are "defending" the terrain. So what happens if 2 units are within the same area terrain (say ruins or large woods) and shoot at each other and on top of that they are within 2" of each other, Do they get cover saves or is the "defending" rule nullified due to being closer than 2"?
I say that both units would get a cover save as the target unit is in cover. The fact that the firer too is in the same bit of cover shouldnt negate the save. The rule you mention it to stop a unit defending cover giving cover to every other tatget because of the tree at the edge of the woods from which you are firing out of. It also prevents the defenders from claiming they can fire at all opponents through any sized area terrain.

This is all covered on page 22.
Neither firing unit grants the target a cover save due to being in area terrain, however both have a cover save due to being in area terrain. Therefore, both would be able to claim cover saves. If you've ever played paintball in dense forest you'll get exactly how this works.
