View Full Version : Dynamo and Stryker 3 assault

Can Dyanmo use his multi-shot special attack on an assult when under Stryker 3? Effectively, he could then get 4 ranged attacks from Multi-fire and then the charge attack, then attacks with any focus he has left? This getting his melee attacks up to very high damage levels?

No. Multi-fire is not a normal attack.

Additionally, special attacks can't be used outside of your combat action. The assault shot occurs before your combat action starts.

Sorry, but no. Assault has to be a normal ranged attack, and special attacks are only made in the combat action.

EDIT: Neenja!

Negative. Assault allows the model to make a single ranged attack, but Multi-Fire is a *Attack, and not allowed as part of Assault:

Assault (Order) - Affected models must charge or run. As part of a charge, after moving but before making its charge attack, anaffected model can make one ranged attack targeting the model charged unless they were in melee with each other at the startof the affected model’s activation. Models that received this order cannot make combined ranged attacks this activation. Whenresolving an Assault ranged attack, the attacking model does not suffer the target in melee penalty. If the target is not in meleerange after moving, the affected model must still make the ranged attack before its activation ends.

Multi-Fire (★Attack) - Make an attack with this weapon. On a hit, after resolving the attack this model can immediately makeone additional attack with this weapon targeting the last model hit or another model within 2˝ of the last model hit, ignoring ROF.This model can make up to four attacks during its activation as a result of Multi-Fire.

According to a previous thread (https://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?156693-Assault-and-Special-Attack), *Attacks can only be made during a model's Action; the Assault attack occurs before the model's Action begins. This is why e.g. Thunderhead cannot make a Pulse *Attack when Assaulting.

And in addition to the additionally, special attacks can only be made during a model's combat action. The ranged attack from Assault happens before the model's combat action.

Edit: so slooooow >_<

Thanks all! Yeah that would have been stupidly broken.
