Alright, just checking a few things. Played against and ork player the other day and in the interest of moving the game along, I just acquiesced to his claims, since Orks have some messed up rules. I read through the codex too, just figured I'd check on some things.
Zzap gun, thanks to the codex and chapter approved '03, it automatically hits an entire squad of models within line of sight and just rolls for strength, right? That spelled the doom of many a squad of T3 troops here....
STIKKBOMBZ: These guys, be they super stikk, frag, or krak... you can't throw them, right? I thought grenades could only be used as outlined in the rulebook, i.e. letting units charging units in cover to strike first instead of last or whatever special effect it may grant. Is this true or do these orks have grenade launcheresque arms?
The zzap gun automatically hits a single model within range and LOS, but he cant pick out characters and stuff with it.
Orks cant throw grenades, they just use them like anyone else.
So ur mate was a filthy cheater, or he just didnt know the rules and decided to make some up. hope it helps,
Figured as much with the 'nades, but I didn't care because my stealthsuits were eviscerating him in the heavy cityscape.
As for the zzapgun, though. In chapter approved 03 they changed it from model to unit, saying "The gun automatically hits any single unit within range and line of sight."
Did they change it afterwards again or is it still an instant death generator for pretty much any squad within two feet?

No, it inflicts only one hit on whatever unit he chooses to fire at with the zzap gun. It most certainly does not inflict a hit on EVERY model in a unit.Originally Posted by Mondian

I think if Zzzap guns were that powerful, you'd see them in every Ork list, much like SM assault cannons.
(Just wait until they make Autocannons AP3...in 5th edition, that is...)
