Does Creeping Barrage benefit from Shatterstorm?

1) Is Creeping Barrage considered to be damage from the weapon/colossal?
2) Is the model that enters the AoE considered to be "directly hit", as it isn't blast damage?
3) Since Shatterstorm is an upkeep, is it still in use during the opponents turn (i.e. for free strikes)?

Creeping barrage allows you to place a template. Then that template does things.

Once the template is out in the world, damage is from the template (so not from the weapon/colossal). No model could be directly hit by it, because it is not an attack.

Your third question is mostly unrelated to the first two, but yes, shatterstorm works on freestrikes.
