    Default Flight vs Hazards visual guide

    There were some questions at a recent game about how Flight interacts with Hazards, so I thought I'd bring over the visual guide from the old forums. There is a photo per post limit so it's been split up.

    I used a clear plastic base under Pteradax at the start of each example to show it is flying. Only Hazard damage is specified in the examples, all attacks still do the regular attack damage.

    Situation 1: The difference between being on a Hazard you moved onto and being forced into one.

    Pteradax ends his movement on a Hazard tile but takes no damage since he has the Flight special ability.



    Deimos 9 Body Slams Pteradax into a Hazard tile causing Hazard damage to Pteradax because Pteradax was forced to move into the Hazard and Flight does not protect a monster from Hazard damage when it is forced to move into a hazard.

    Situation 2: Being forced into a Hazard you're already occupying

    The same holds true if you're forced into the Hazard tile you were occupying. Pteradax is safe on the Radiation Hazard it moved on to.



    But takes Hazard damage from the Radiation Hazard as Deimos 9 Body Slams Pteradax into it.



    If Pteradax does not move from the Radiation tile he was Body Slammed into, he will not take Hazard damage if Deimos 9 Body Slams him again into the same tile since he has taken Hazard damage from that tile and has not moved off of it. This is true for any monster if it has Flight or not.

    Situation 3: Taking damage from being forced through a Hazard

    In this example, Sky Sentinel makes a two P-Die slam attack against Pteradax, who is positioned on half of a Hazard tile.



    The first space of movement forces Pteradax into the Hazard Tile causing Hazard Damage.



    The second space moves Pteradax on the same Hazard again, but he takes no damage since Pteradax has already collided with this Hazard.

    Situation 4: If a monster Smashes a flying monster that is half way on a Hazard and the Smash moves the target monster off the Hazard, does it collide with the Hazard?

    Starting with this set up, Deimos 9 doing a 2 P-die Smash Power Attack to Pteradax :



    The first square of the Smash pushes Pteradax clear of the Hazard tile so it takes no Hazard damage from either square the Smash forces it into.

    Situation 5: If a monster with beat back beats back a flying monster half way into a hazard, and then the flying monster has a unit turn, and then the next turn the monster beats it back again in the same direction, does it collide with the hazard again?

    Ultra Rogzor takes a shot at Pteradax flying over a Hazard tile.



    The first space forces Pteradax into the Hazard causing damage.



    Pteradax has already taken damage from this Hazard so the second space of forced movement does not cause Hazard damage. The third space is clear

    Situation 5 continued
    Pteradax takes a unit turn and Rogzor activates again, making the same attack but moving Pteradax back towards Rogzor



    The first space of movement forces Pteradax into the same Hazard, and since Pteradax was moved out of the Hazard by the last attack, it takes damage from colliding with the Hazard because this is the first time Pteradax has collided with this Hazard after moving out of it..



    Again, since Pteradax has taken damage from this Hazard already this turn, it does not take damage from the other two spaces of movement through the Hazard

    That's really helpful to actually SEE the examples.
    Leads me to a noobie question though. In situation 4, would Deimos 9 take Hazard damage as well since it ends it's turn on the Hazard tile?

    Martians aren't hurt by radioactive hazards. But otherwise, yes, a monster would be damaged when it enters the hazard.

    If a unit with flying is towed into a fire hazard, does it die?

    No. Being Towed onto a hazard is the same as ending movement on the hazard. A flying unit won't die when ending movement on any hazards in the game, so they don't die from being Towed or otherwise forced onto the hazard.
