Rapid Fire 2 is how many shots???

Postby BrotherRaff » Mon Jul 10, 2017 5:48 pm

Hi All-
New player and new club member here. Played my third and fourth games of 40k ever this past Sunday against two fantastic opponents. I'm still trying to wrap my head around something and sorry if this is a dumb question: If a unit of 10 models, each armed with a storm bolter (Rapid Fire 2), shoots at another unit within 12" (half range), is that really FORTY shots? :shock:

Thanks much.

Yup, you get two shots at 24" or 4 shots at 12" for each model.

Yep! Or say a 50 man unit of conscripts with the first rank fire order - that's 200 shots!
Game Preferences:
A model may assault upper levels of terrain if they charge far enough to climb them
All current beta rules in effect unless opponent prefers otherwise

Best way to wrap your head around rapid fire is to half the shooting distance and double the number of shots!

And yes to answer your question Storm Bolters for 2pts are TERRIFYING right now. ALL THE DAKKA!!!
