Imperial Navy Breacher Kill Team

Below you will find a list of the operatives that make up an IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER kill team, including, where relevant, any wargear those operatives must be equipped with.

Operatives

  • 1 NAVIS SERGEANT-AT-ARMS operative equipped with the following:
    • Navis shotgun; Navis hatchet
    Or one option from each of the following:
    • Bolt pistol or heirloom autopistol
    • Chainsword or power weapon

  • 11 IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives selected from the following list:
    • NAVIS ARMSMAN
    • NAVIS AXEJACK
    • NAVIS C.A.T. UNIT
    • NAVIS ENDURANT

Abilities

Below, you will find common abilities of the IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER kill team.

Breach and Clear

Methodical, professional and well-drilled, Imperial Navy Breachers work as a unit to breach and clear the corridors and chambers of enemy voidcraft, space hulks, orbital stations and more.

Once per Turning Point, when a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operative is activated, you can use this ability. If you do so:
  • Select one other ready friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operative Visible to and within of that operative that is eligible to be activated.
  • Until the end of the Turning Point, those operatives are treated as having a Group Activation characteristic of 2.
  • When the first operative’s activation ends, you must select the second operative (even if it is not of the same type) to fulfil the Group Activation requirements.

Void Armour

The armour worn by Imperial Navy Armsmen is void-sealed, meaning that they can fight in zero gravity and zero-atmosphere conditions. Being completely encased in protective armour makes the Armsmen much less vulnerable to explosive blasts and flaming torrents.

  • This operative is unaffected by the Splash critical hit rule unless it is the target of the shooting attack.
  • Each time a shooting attack is made against this operative, if the ranged weapon has the Blast X or Torrent X special rule, or makes a shooting attack against each operative within range of a specified point (e.g. Detonate), in the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, you can re-roll one of your defence dice (or up to two of your defence dice if this operative has the NAVIS GRENADIER keyword).

Strategic Ploys

If your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER, you can use the following Strategic Ploys during a game.

ATTACK ORDER1CP
Strategic Ploy
Place one of your Attack Order tokens anywhere in the killzone. Each time a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack while within of that token, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll any or all of your attack dice results of one result (e.g. results of 2). At the end of the Turning Point, remove that Attack Order token. You cannot use this Strategic Ploy in the same Turning Point in which you use the Defence Order Strategic Ploy.
DEFENCE ORDER1CP
Strategic Ploy
Place one of your Defence Order tokens anywhere in the killzone. Each time a shooting attack is made against a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative that is within of that token, in the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, you can re-roll any or all of your defence dice results of one result (e.g. results of 2). At the end of the Turning Point, remove that Defence Order token. You cannot use this Strategic Ploy in the same Turning Point in which you use the Attack Order Strategic Ploy.
CLOSE ASSAULT1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack against a target within of it, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, if you retain two or more successful hits, you can retain one of your failed hits as a successful normal hit instead.
BRACE FOR COUNTER-ATTACK1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time an enemy operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack against a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative that has not performed a Charge, Fall Back or Normal Move action during this Turning Point, subtract 1 from both Damage characteristics of weapons that enemy operative is equipped with for that combat or shooting attack (to a minimum of 2).

Tactical Ploys

If your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER, you can use the following Tactical Ploys during a game.

OVERWHELM TARGET1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy when you use the Breach and Clear ability. Select one of those friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operatives. Add 1 to its APL.
BLITZ1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy when a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative performs a Fight or Shoot action against a target within of it. In the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, before rolling your attack dice:
  • If it is the first friendly operative to be activated this Turning Point, you can retain one attack dice as a critical hit without rolling it.
  • If it is the first friendly operative to perform either of those actions this Turning Point, you can retain one attack dice as a successful normal hit without rolling it.
LOCK IT DOWN1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy when a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative is activated. Select one objective marker. Until the end of the battle, when determining control of that objective marker, treat that operative’s APL as being 1 higher. Note that this is not a modifier. In narrative play, this is cumulative with the Focused Battle Honour. You can only use this Tactical Ploy for each friendly operative once.
CALM HEAD1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy when a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative is activated. Until the end of the battle, you can ignore any or all modifiers to that operative’s Movement characteristic and to the Ballistic Skill and Weapon Skill characteristics of the weapons it is equipped with.

Tac Ops

If your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER, you can use the Imperial Navy Breacher Tac Ops listed below, as specified in the mission sequence.

STORM TARGET
Imperial Navy Breacher – Faction Tac Op 1
Reveal this Tac Op in the Target Reveal step of the first Turning Point. Your opponent selects one objective marker. It cannot be an objective marker that can be permanently removed from the killzone, but it can be an objective marker that can be carried.
  • At the end of any Turning Point, if friendly operatives are controlling that objective marker, you score 1VP.
  • At the end of the battle, if friendly operatives are controlling that objective marker, you score 1VP.
INTO THE BREACH
Imperial Navy Breacher – Faction Tac Op 2
You can reveal this Tac Op at the end of the fourth Turning Point.
  • If one or more friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives (excluding NAVIS GHEISTSKULL and NAVIS C.A.T. UNIT operatives) are within of your opponent’s killzone edge, you score 1VP.
  • If two or more friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives (excluding NAVIS GHEISTSKULL and NAVIS C.A.T. UNIT operatives) are within of your opponent’s killzone edge, you score 1VP.
COUNTERACT
Imperial Navy Breacher – Faction Tac Op 3
You can reveal this Tac Op in the Target Reveal step of any Turning Point.
  • If you use the Breach and Clear ability, and during that Group Activation, one friendly operative incapacitates an enemy operative, and the other friendly operative incapacitates an enemy operative or controls an objective marker at the end of that Group Activation that friendly operatives did not control at the start of it, you score 1VP.
  • If you achieve the first condition in any subsequent Turning Points, you score 1VP.

Spec Ops Rules

Each time you would select a Spec Op for your kill team to be assigned to, if your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER you can select one from those listed below instead of selecting one from another source.

Battle Honours

Each time an IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operative gains a Battle Honour, instead of determining one from its specialism, you can determine one from the Imperial Navy Breacher Specialist table below. You can either roll one D6 to randomly determine the Battle Honour (re-rolling if it isn’t suitable), or you can select an appropriate one. As with any Battle Honour, an operative cannot have the same one more than once (if a duplicate result is rolled, roll again until a different result is rolled).

IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER SPECIALIST
D6Battle Honour
1Gutsy: This operative always treats the Close Assault Strategic Ploy as having been used.
2Assured: Each time a shooting attack is made against this operative, if this operative is within range of an objective marker or one of your Tac Ops tokens, or is carrying an objective marker or one of your Tac Ops tokens, in the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, before rolling your defence dice, you can retain one as a successful normal save without rolling it.
3Deckhand: Each time this operative performs the Operate Hatch action, roll one D6: on a 3+, the action point subtracted to perform that action is refunded.
4Bruiser: Each time this operative fights in combat, if it is the active operative, its melee weapons have the Brutal special rule for that combat.
5Scrapper: Improve the Weapon Skill characteristic of melee weapons this operative is equipped with by 1 (to a maximum of 2+).
6Gallant: Each time this operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack, if it is within of your opponent’s drop zone or killzone edge, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll one of your attack dice.

Rare Equipment

Each time you would determine an item of rare equipment to add to your stash, if your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER, you can determine one from the table below instead of determining one from another source. To do so, you can either roll one D6 to randomly determine the rare equipment (re-rolling if it isn’t suitable), or you can select an appropriate one. As with any item of rare equipment, your stash cannot include more than one of each item (if a duplicate result is rolled, roll again until a different result is rolled).

1. RELIC CUTLASS [1EP]

NAVIS SERGEANT-AT-ARMS operative only. Select a power weapon the operative is equipped with. That weapon gains the Balanced special rule for the battle.

2. NAVIS CUIRASS [2EP]

NAVIS SERGEANT-AT-ARMS operative only. The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Navis Cuirass: Each time an enemy operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack against this operative, subtract 1 from both Damage characteristics of weapons that enemy operative is equipped with for that combat or shooting attack (to a minimum of 2). This is not cumulative with the Brace for Counter-Attack Strategic Ploy.

3. ENHANCED ENERGY CELL [2EP]

NAVIS GUNNER operative only. Select a Navis las-volley the operative is equipped with. That weapon gains the Rending special rule for the battle.

4. REMOTE ACCESS DEVICE [2EP]

The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Remote Access Device: This operative can perform the Operate Hatch action while within of a Hatchway’s access point (instead of ), and can do so even if that Hatchway is open and an enemy operative is within of its access point. An operative cannot use this ability and the Deckhand Battle Honour and/or Hatchcutter ability at the same time.

5. AUSPICATOR [3EP]

The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Auspicator: Once per Turning Point, during this operative’s activation, it can perform a mission action for one less action point (to a minimum of 0AP).

6. AUTO-MEDICAE UNIT [1EP]

After the battle, in the Update Dataslates step, if this operative was not incapacitated during the battle, you can re-roll one Casualty test.


Strategic Assets

Each time you would add a strategic asset to your base of operations, if your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER, you can select one from the list below instead of selecting one from another source. As with any strategic asset, you can never have more than one of each.

COLOURS

The kill team display their accolades and heritage for their operatives to see, inspiring new recruits and imparting responsibility on the experienced to bond the unit and propagate its accomplishments.

After the battle, in the Update Dataslates step, from the friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives that were selected for deployment and did not fail a Casualty test, the operative with the lowest experience points earns 1XP (if more than one operative would qualify for this, select one of them to earn 1XP). You can only add this strategic asset to your base of operations if your dataslate includes at least one operative of Veteran rank or higher.

VOID AUGUR

Augurs on their ship regularly provide the kill team with data to help them conduct their missions successfully, from enemy troop dispositions to potential obstacles.

At the start of the battle, secretly make a note of a specific Turning Point other than the first (e.g. the third Turning Point). When rolling off to determine initiative for that Turning Point, you roll one additional D6 and discard one of your results.

EXPANDED SUPPLY BAY

The kill team has expanded a storage bay in their base, acquired a mobile supply transport or established a hidden cache full of useful equipment.

While your base of operations has this strategic asset, the following items of IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER equipment are treated as being in your stash in unlimited quantities:

  • Frag grenade
  • Stun grenade
  • Rebreather
  • Slugs
  • Stimm


Requisitions

In a Spec Ops campaign, if your faction is IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER, you can use the following Requisitions in addition to those presented in other sources.

REINFORCEMENTS1RP

Freshly trained troops join the kill team, bolstering their ranks for the missions to come.

Purchase this Requisition before or after a game. Add two NAVIS ARMSMAN operatives to your dataslate.
MISSION CRITICAL1RP

With much at stake, the kill team use all manner of stimm cocktails and chem-breathers to suppress the pain of their injuries and stave off exhaustion in order to complete their objectives.

Purchase this Requisition before a game. During the next battle, friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives ignore the effects of any Battle Scars they have. After that battle, roll one D6 for each friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operative that failed a Casualty test: on a 4+, that test is passed instead (that operative can earn no more than 3XP from that battle).
HERO IN THE RANKS1RP

Breachleads are highly regarded by their squadmates, their bravery and physical prowess motivating them to achieve victory.

Purchase this Requisition when a friendly NAVIS ENDURANT or NAVIS GUNNER operative gains a rank. You can select a number of friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives on your dataslate (excluding NAVIS ENDURANT and NAVIS GUNNER operatives) up to the number of ranks that NAVIS ENDURANT or NAVIS GUNNER operative has multiplied by two; each selected operative earns 1XP. For example, if a NAVIS ENDURANT operative gains the Ace rank, up to six friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operatives (excluding NAVIS ENDURANT and NAVIS GUNNER operatives) could each earn 1XP.

Visible
For an intended target to be Visible, the following must be true:
  • You can draw an imaginary, unobstructed straight line (known as a Visibility line) 1 mm wide from the head of the active operative’s miniature to any part of the miniature of the intended target (not its base).
In the rare instance that bases prevent an intended target from being Visible to the active operative, such as when the active operative is directly below or above the intended target, treat those bases as being invisible.

Some rare rules will require you to select a point that is Visible (e.g. a point on the killzone). In such circumstances, you must be able to draw an imaginary, unobstructed straight line 1mm wide from the head of the active operative’s miniature to the point you would select.
Splash x
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that shooting attack, for each critical hit retained, inflict x mortal wounds on the target and each other operative Visible to and within of it. x is the number after the weapon’s Splash, e.g. Splash 1.
Blast x
Each time a friendly operative performs a Shoot action and selects this weapon (or, in the case of profiles, this weapon’s profile), after making the shooting attack against the target, make a shooting attack with this weapon (using the same profile) against each other operative Visible to and within X of the original target – each of them is a valid target and cannot be in Cover. X is the distance after the weapon’s Blast, e.g. Blast . An operative cannot make a shooting attack with this weapon by performing an Overwatch action.

  1. An operative performs a Shoot action, selects a ranged weapon with the Blast special rule, and selects operative A as the target.
  2. After making the shooting attack against operative A, it makes a shooting attack against operative B, determining if it is a valid target as if operative A was making the shooting attack.
  3. It cannot make a shooting attack against operative C, as when determining if it is a valid target in this manner, operative C is not Visible to operative A due to the terrain feature between them.
Torrent x
Each time a friendly operative performs a Shoot action or Overwatch action and selects this weapon, after making the shooting attack against the target, it can make a shooting attack with this weapon against each other valid target within x of the original target and each other, x is the distance after the weapon’s Torrent, e.g. Torrent .

  1. An operative performs a Shoot action, selects a ranged weapon with the Torrent special rule, and selects operative A as the target.
  2. After making the shooting attack against operative A, it makes a shooting attack against operative B and C, determining if they are a valid target as normal.
  3. It cannot make a shooting attack against operative D, as while that operative is within of operative A and C, it is not within of operative B.
DEFENCE ORDER1CP
Strategic Ploy
Place one of your Defence Order tokens anywhere in the killzone. Each time a shooting attack is made against a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative that is within of that token, in the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, you can re-roll any or all of your defence dice results of one result (e.g. results of 2). At the end of the Turning Point, remove that Defence Order token. You cannot use this Strategic Ploy in the same Turning Point in which you use the Attack Order Strategic Ploy.
ATTACK ORDER1CP
Strategic Ploy
Place one of your Attack Order tokens anywhere in the killzone. Each time a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack while within of that token, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll any or all of your attack dice results of one result (e.g. results of 2). At the end of the Turning Point, remove that Attack Order token. You cannot use this Strategic Ploy in the same Turning Point in which you use the Defence Order Strategic Ploy.
Breach and Clear

Methodical, professional and well-drilled, Imperial Navy Breachers work as a unit to breach and clear the corridors and chambers of enemy voidcraft, space hulks, orbital stations and more.

Once per Turning Point, when a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operative is activated, you can use this ability. If you do so:
  • Select one other ready friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHER operative Visible to and within of that operative that is eligible to be activated.
  • Until the end of the Turning Point, those operatives are treated as having a Group Activation characteristic of 2.
  • When the first operative’s activation ends, you must select the second operative (even if it is not of the same type) to fulfil the Group Activation requirements.
Actions
Actions are categorised as follows:
  • Universal actions can be performed by all operatives. They are detailed below.
  • Unique actions are actions detailed on an operative’s datacard that only they can perform, such as the Dakka Dash action found on the example datacard.
  • Mission actions are specific to the mission you are playing, and will be detailed by that mission’s briefing. Missions can be found here (Open Play mission) and here (Spec Ops Narrative missions).
  • Free actions can only be performed when another rule specifies. Each time an operative would perform a free action, the following rules apply.
    • The operative can perform the action, so long as the requirements of the action are met.
    • The player does not subtract any additional AP to perform the action.
    • The operative would still count as performing the action for all rules purposes. For example, if it performed it during its activation, it would not be able to perform the action again during that activation.

For example, when a KOMMANDO DAKKA BOY performs a Dakka Dash action (see unique actions, above), it can perform a free Dash and free Shoot action without subtracting any additional AP (other than the AP spent on the Dakka Dash action). However, it is subject to those actions’ requirements, therefore it cannot perform the free Dash action if it is within Engagement Range of enemy operatives, and cannot perform the free Shoot action if it is within Engagement Range of enemy operatives or has a Conceal order. In addition, for each of the free actions it performs, it cannot perform them again during its activation.
Modifying Characteristics
Some rules will modify the characteristics of an operative and/or their weapons. All modifiers to a characteristic are cumulative.

If a characteristic refers to the result required when rolling a D6 (i.e. Save, Ballistic Skill and Weapon Skill), the modifier will specify to improve or worsen the characteristic. As a lower result is a better characteristic, the modifier should be applied accordingly. For example, if a Ballistic Skill of 4+ is worsened by 1, it would be modified to a 5+.

If an operative’s APL is modified, it lasts until the end of its current or next activation (whichever comes first). Regardless of how many APL modifiers an operative is affected by, the total modification can never be more than -1 or +1 from its normal APL. For example, if an operative has an APL of 2, and two rules say to add 1 to the operative’s APL, until the end of its next activation it would have an APL of 3.
CLOSE ASSAULT1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack against a target within of it, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, if you retain two or more successful hits, you can retain one of your failed hits as a successful normal hit instead.

OPERATE HATCH1AP

An operative can perform this action while within of a Hatchway’s access point. Open or close that Hatchway. An operative cannot perform this action while within Engagement Range of an enemy operative, or if that Hatchway is open and an enemy operative is within of its access point.

An operative can perform this action during a Dash or Normal Move action, and any remaining increments of movement can be used after it does so. Note, however, that opening a Hatchway can cause the operative to be within Engagement Range of an enemy operative, in which case that Dash or Normal Move action would immediately end (unless the operative has any rules that allow it to move within Engagement Range of an enemy operative, e.g. FLY).

Designer’s Note: If a Hatchway’s status is changed and operative placement would prevent the hatch from fully opening or closing, temporarily remove the necessary operatives from the killzone, fully open or close the hatch as appropriate, then return the operatives to the killzone as close as possible to their original location. If an operative is within an enemy operative’s Engagement Range before a hatch is opened, it must be returned within Engagement Range of that enemy operative after the hatch is opened.
Brutal
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat with this weapon, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat, your opponent can only parry with critical hits.
Balanced
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll one of your attack dice.
BRACE FOR COUNTER-ATTACK1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time an enemy operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack against a friendly IMPERIAL NAVY BREACHERS operative that has not performed a Charge, Fall Back or Normal Move action during this Turning Point, subtract 1 from both Damage characteristics of weapons that enemy operative is equipped with for that combat or shooting attack (to a minimum of 2).
Rending
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, if you retain any critical hits you can retain one normal hit as a critical hit.
Rng x
Range. Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, only operatives within x are a valid target, x is the distance after the weapon’s Rng, e.g. Rng . All other rules for selecting a valid target still apply.
Indirect
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the select valid target step of that shooting attack, enemy operatives are not in Cover.
Limited
This weapon can only be selected for use once per battle. If the weapon has a special rule that would allow it to make more than one shooting attack for an action (e.g. Blast), make each of those attacks as normal.

Engagement Range
Engagement Range is the zone of threat that operatives present to their enemies. Many rules in the game use Engagement Range, such as when moving and fighting. Engagement Range is mutual, therefore operatives are within each other’s Engagement Range if one of them is Visible to and within of the other.

STUN GRENADE [2EP]

The operative can perform the following action for the battle:

STUN GRENADE1AP

Select one point on the killzone within of this operative. Roll one D6 for each operative within of that point, subtracting 1 from the result if that operative is not Visible to this operative. On a 4+, subtract 1 from that operative’s APL. This operative can only perform this action once, and cannot perform this action while within Engagement Range of an enemy operative.
Stun
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that shooting attack, if you retain any critical hits, subtract 1 from the target’s APL. Each time a friendly operative fights in combat with this weapon, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat:
  • The first time you strike with a critical hit, select one of your opponent’s normal hits from that combat to be discarded
  • The second time you strike with a critical hit, subtract 1 from the target’s APL.

REBREATHER [1EP]

The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Rebreather: You can ignore any or all modifiers to this operative’s APL and it is not affected by the Stun critical hit rule.

SLUGS [1EP]

Operative equipped with a Navis shotgun only. In the Set Up Operatives step, select a type of ammunition for this operative to have loaded into its Navis shotgun for the battle: cartridges or slugs. If it has loaded cartridges, it uses either profile of its Navis shotgun as normal. If it has loaded slugs, it can only use the long range profile of its Navis shotgun, but add 1 to both Damage characteristics of that profile and improve its Ballistic Skill characteristic by 1 for that operative.

The operative can perform the following action during the battle:

SLUGS1AP

Change the type of ammunition loaded into the Navis shotgun this operative is equipped with (see above).

STIMM [1EP]

Void Armour

The armour worn by Imperial Navy Armsmen is void-sealed, meaning that they can fight in zero gravity and zero-atmosphere conditions. Being completely encased in protective armour makes the Armsmen much less vulnerable to explosive blasts and flaming torrents.

  • This operative is unaffected by the Splash critical hit rule unless it is the target of the shooting attack.
  • Each time a shooting attack is made against this operative, if the ranged weapon has the Blast X or Torrent X special rule, or makes a shooting attack against each operative within range of a specified point (e.g. Detonate), in the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, you can re-roll one of your defence dice (or up to two of your defence dice if this operative has the NAVIS GRENADIER keyword).

The ASSAULT GRENADIER PATHFINDER keyword is used in the following Pathfinder datacards:

Equipment
You can only select each equipment with the Indirect special rule (e.g. dynamite, krak grenade, fusion grenade) once per battle. If a friendly operative already equipped with such equipment is selected for deployment (e.g. ASSAULT GRENADIER PATHFINDER), this counts as your selection.
Relentless
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll any or all of your attack dice.
Cover
If an operative positions themselves in Cover, they will use it for protection while they have an Engage order, or hide behind it while they have a Conceal order. For an intended target to be in Cover, both of the following must be true:
  • The intended target is more than from the active operative.
  • The intended target is within of a point at which a Cover line crosses another operative’s base (unless that other operative is not itself in the active operative’s LoS), or a terrain feature that provides Cover (see Terrain Traits).

Note that an intended target that has an Engage order can gain a defensive benefit for being in Cover as specified in the shooting sequence.

To establish Cover lines, the active operative’s controlling player draws imaginary straight lines, 1mm wide, from any part of the active operative’s base to every part of the intended target’s base.
