    Turbo Boost Question

    I posted this to the wrong forum, so I've gone ahead and pasted it here!

    The people I was playing with today insisted that rule against Turbo Boosting through difficult terrain (say a forest) does not hold true as they can fly "above." it. Now, whereas I probably feel this to be an example of using the letter of the law to defeat the purpose, it is a curious question. Are jetbikes able to Turbo Boost OVER terrain completely ignoring that rule? I can definately see that restriction being only for bikes, which would of course be hindered by difficult terrain. I suppose the same question would go for water... bikes shouldbn't be able to turbo boost through it, but jetbikes can fly ABOVE it... I dunno. i suppose it kinda makes sense that that was meant specifically for bikes as they were mentioned in the same paragraph...

    Any official ruling on this?

    Thanks!

    Just the rules in the BGB which covers both regular wheeled bikes and flying jetbikes. So no, Jetbikes cannot turbo-boost through difficult terrain.

    Remember, difficult terrain can be attributed to many factors such as trees and fences etc not just rough ground. When you are turbo-boosting you are travelling extremely fast and will find it hard to dodge obstacles in your path.

    Cheers, Lleu.


    EDIT: After reading Gojiratoho's post I re-read the jetbikes rule. They can move over difficult terrain during a turbo-boost but would not be able to move into/through area terrain in order to claim a cover save.

    I disagree there. Jetbikes could always fly over terrian, and according to the TB rules on page 76, turboboosters just can't move through diff terrain. If they are still allowed to move around it, then I see no reason rules wise why jetbikes still can't just fly over it.
