I dont fully understand how scout snipers work in relation to the power of the sniper rifle. does strength X mean an unlimited strength? I would greatly appreciate help as i am fairly new to this game. thanks for helping
Snipers always wound on a roll of 4+ regardless of the target's toughness. They also have the "Rending" special rule (AP2 on a 6 to wound roll, +D3 to armour penetration on an armour penetration roll of a 6). Against Vehicles, they count as Str 3, but with Rending, they can glance armour 12.
What you really should is to buy (or PDF download ) the 40k Rulebook. It will help a lot.
Thanks this was really helpful!!
they're other useful points is their range, and of course the pinning quality of the weapon.
