I'm having a dumb moment and I can't find the answer in my BRB and I think I'm plain losing my mind. Here's my question
If you have a squad with different weapons in it, can you choose to fire only one weapon and the rest of the squad does nothing, or do they all have to fire?
Basically lemme give you a scenario to explain. If my squad of ten guardsmen has one special weapon dide with an assault weapon, say meltagun, can he fire at a target but the rest of the squad NOT fire? Only reason this stupid question came to mind was I think in the book it says if you fire rapid fire weapons you can't assault, so if you have an assault weapon in a squad there's really no point b/c if he fires than everyone else must also, which means you can't assault and thus there's no point in bringing a weapon which allows you to fire AND assault. As far as I see it, it would mean you either fire ALL your weapons or fire none and hope to be in assault range, but like I said even if you were in assault range and fired your assault weapons, your RF weapons would have to fire also, thereby negating your ability to assault, and I think I just gave myself a migraine.... IDK I'm just having one of those days so if anyone can clear this up it'll be a big help.
Did you give the RulZ BoyZ at GW a call?

"note that individual models within a unit can choose not to shoot."
for example, you have a vet squad w/ 3 meltaguns. you run up to a squad of SM and fire meltaguns, but don't want to fire lasguns cause you want to assault. you don't have to fire lasguns.
and of course, you still can't "split" fire.
Yah I knew you couldn't target different units with the same unit, but you answered my question about having guys opt NOT to fire. Thanks Box
And now I have nothin left to fear about firing and assults
