    save vs markerlight?

    I just had an awful thought. I assume the answer is "no", but I feel I need to check.

    Can someone try to cover save a marker light hit? I haven't had anyone try this yet, but there are a few players in my group who might think to ask.

    My thought would be: It doesn't [directly] cause a wound, so you can't claim a save of any kind, whether it be armor, cover or invulnerable.

    I dont really under stand what you are saying... but I am guessing. if a unit gets hit from a Marker light do they get a cover save from it(the marker light)?

    Fluff wise i makes no sense cause if they are behind a wall the Pathfinder just need to hit the wall and everyone will know that there are guys there then BOOM goes the building after getting hit with missiles and railgun darts

    Markerlights are not shots, in the sense that they do not cause wounds, so no saves are ever rolled against them.
    A cover save is a save offered against a wound facilitated by the presence of cover which offers protection to physical damage, a marker light i only an accuracy guide.
    The only thing cover would do is block line of sight, but then this treated exactly as per any other shot, so if you can see a unit you can markerlight it but no saves, be they cover or whatever are allowed against them.
