    The Airbursting Fragmentation Projector is a Guess Range weapon. Essentially all you have to do is say how many inches you are going to fire the weapon, then measure that distance and if you hit, you hit, and if you fell short or went too far, you missed. What you're trying to do is guess the distance from your battlesuit to the enemy, but the catch is that the maximum range is...whatever it is (We're not allowed to post that information here).

    Guess weapons don't work like that anymore Niterabbit - they changed in 3rd edition. Instead of the player guessing the range, it's now the Model that's guessing the range.

    It's treated similar to Indirect Ordnance. Check out Barrage weapon rules on page 31 of the BGB.

    3rd edition is dead...Long live 4th edition!
    (I may have to just put this in my sig)
    Just out of curiousity, whats next? Maybe you can make an issue about the fact that GW didn't define the action of 'rolling' a D6 to actually mean dropping it in such a manner as to produce a random result; thus making it perfectly acceptable to just put them down with the face up of your choice?

    As I explained in another post, it works as such.
    Declare your target - I'm not sure if you need LOS since it is a Guess weapon (it does say Guess, that's what the G means).
    Guess the range - Declare how many inches you wish to shoot.
    Roll the Scatter and Power Die - Do what they say.
    Resolve the hits - Yeah...

    No, you've got it wrong. As I said, in this very thread, you don't guess the range anymore. You also don't require LoS with Guess/Barrage weapons.

    Check out Barrage weapons on page 31 of the BGB. Barrage weapons = Guess weapons. They're the same thing. You don't guess the range, you simply declare a unit as your target then measure range. If it's within range, then you roll for scatter and then resolve hits.

    A model guesses the range? What? IT does not say that at all... hell it doesnt even say you have to guess...
    Like I said - read page 31. 'Weapons like these fire by the crew guessing the range to the target point....

    Wow...I have completely over looked that. That's even better than I thought.
    I had never known the rule because no one around here uses Guess weapons...at least not that I know of.
