    Sniper rifle

    A question, my brother plays SM and he claims the sniper rifle hits on a 2+ rather than 4+ (i.e. BS3).

    Is this true? I can't see anything in the rule book or his codex.

    Thanks.

    That used to be true in the old rule book. Now the sniper hits on normal BS

    He probably wasn't trying to decieve you but just hasn't been updated.

    Although just remember that snipers now have rending (if you roll a 6 on the to wound roll you ignore armor. Against vehicles it allows you to add a further D3 to the penetration roll)

    Indeed, as said thats an old rule. Snipers are a bit less certain than they used to be but can cause more damage if lucky. I've taken an Avatar down in turn one with a ten man squad of snipers! Rare they are that good though.
