I'm a little confused about how rate of fire works for a Warjack.
I have a Menoth Redeemer which has a ROF 3 for his shooty weapon. What I would like to know is when he is activated, do I shoot all 3 or do I have to allocate focus, shoot 1 then spend focus to shoot the 2nd and 3rd times???

Thanks,

Doug

You get one attack for free and have to spend focus to make the additional two to max out your ROF.

ROF is the maximum number of times a Warjack can normally shoot the range weapon in a round.

The 1st shot is the initial attack. Beyond the first shot you have to buy the extra attacks at 1 focus each. So on a ROF 3 weapon you would need 2 focus to shoot it the full 3 times.

During its activation, to be exact. A model can make any number of ranged attacks outside of its activation.

Pay special attention to the "initial attack" segment - a ROF 1 weapon that loses its initial attack can still spend 1 focus to buy a ranged attack as it has not used its ROF 1
