Just a question about the grenade launchers fitted to the pulse carbines of gun drones;
What is their range? Do they have one?
Are the photon grenades only used to reduce the effect of charges against the equipped unit of gundrones, or can they be used at a distance, such as blinding a distant unit that is charging a nearby friendy unit.
I beleive what you're refering to is the fact that the pulse carbines shoot grenades in their weapon description. If I'm not mistaken, that is not actually a grenade launcher, that is whay they use for ammunition and that is why they have a shorter range, aren't rapid fire and pin, because it is a photon grenade being shot instead of a pulse particle. So there is no range, you can't use them as grenades and you can't use them to make a light shield. Sorrey.

The photon grenades that reduce chagers' attacks can only be given to Fire Warriors and Human Auxilliaries, at the point cost listed in the codex and C.A. website.
