View Full Version : critical hit effects + shield guard

Hey all quick question. If a defender jack marshalled to atgm uses crit brutal, criteria against something, and then a model with shield guard steps in and is auto hit, does the crit effect still happen? Or since he is auto hit, does the crit effect not take place?

I would say no based on the timing chart. since they hit automatically, it changed the effects of step 9 since you didn't roll that crit vs. the shield guard. This is an interesting question though and I cant wait to hear the answer.
