Quick question, Bart the pirate has a spell called Hot Shots which says that it boosts ranged attack damage rolls? (or maybe an additional die, unimportant here) Does this apply to ranged attacks that have an aoe and catch models with blast damage?

Prime says that models suffer blast damage = pow/2 + 2d6 damage, which is clearly not the same wording as ranged attack damage rolls = pow + 2d6, but can an argument be made that this blast damage roll is a subset of ranged attacks since it originated from a ranged weapon?

Thanks in advance,

If the source of the damage roll is a ranged attack, then it its a ranged attack damage roll. Therefore the answer is yes you get boosted blast damage to the ranged attack damage rolls.

Yes, Hot Shot also applies to blast damage rolls originating from a ranged weapon with an AoE value.
