Yeah, I don't get it. I've read a lot of criticism that it doesn't have base building, but neither does the tabletop, so ???

The Berzerker "fight twice per fight phase" does not specify whether the second fight sequence is made immediately after the first one.

The fight rules specify that after each charging unit fights, you take turns alternating until each unit has fought once.

So Alternate Charge and Priority unit fights --> Alternate normal fights --->Alternate Second Fights (that don't have timing specified).

Can't. There are conscripts standing there spread out 2" apart creating a massive no-go zone around the target and you cannot move within 1" of them outside of the charge phase.

not at all , most flyers only give a -1 to hit now and since heavy weapons give a -1 penalty to balistic skill flyers have a tougher time hitting things , that said most are still good due to their mobility and excellent array of weapons

got a lot more viable thanks to the change in the ap system, no longer will ap4 anti infantry weapons be designated to the box of purgatory due to the local meta having mostly 3+ or better saves, that said the cheesiest of cheese lists , which atm means lots of cheap bodies synergysing with 1 or two commanding characters ( e.g. genestealers/conscripts) will still give a cookie cutter list a beating.

This is how you do it

>> No.54020334

I don't believe so. The rule is different from something like Penitent Engine, which specifies that you immediately pile in and then fight again. This just says you can fight twice in each fight phase.

So here's how I think it goes:

1. Charge
2. Fight phase begins
3. Players take turns alternating between units with priority and units that charged. Here you resolve your first fights with the berserkers.
4. Now you resolve non charge, non priority fights. You alternate again.
5. Finally, you resolve any fights for units that can fight more than once in a fight phase.
6. You now resolve any fights for units that fight last in a fight phase.

I'm guessing it works this way because the general fight phase rules specify that you alternate between units until every unit has fought once each.

But this will need an FAQ, because any interpretation is basically valid.

You can only attack shit that you charged, however as long you end your pile in move closer to the enemy unit you charged than when you started, you can tie up as many other units in close combat as you want. You just won't be able to fight them.

For consolodation the models have to move closer to the nearest enemy if they choose to consolodate. Same rules apply however, it doesnt have to be straight at them, so you can tie up even more units in close combat.

As far as I can tell, weapon types are mutually exclusive, with each weapon having only one type. When the rule says to count the weapon as Assault, that would seem to imply that you do ignore whatever the normal weapon type is. Otherwise that would render that order pretty useless, as it's clearly intended to circumvent normal movement penalties for weapon types like Heavy, which doesn't work unless you're temporarily replacing Heavy.

By default, the type of the Krak Grenades is "Grenade" as listed in their profile. The CRB clearly describes the effects of the Grenade weapon type as including the limitation on the number of models in a unit that can throw them. The order in question changes all weapons' types to Assault, including the "Grenade" type, thus removing the Grenade weapon type from the Krak Grenades. At this point, they lack the Grenade type and as such lack the restrictions that come with that type.

Weapon type has effects, weapon name does not.

That's not what the rules say. They just say it fights first. If the first fight happens first, then they did. It says after every charging unit has fought, move on to alternating units. Once a Berzerker unit has fought once, it has fought. So then you move on to alternating fights. During this alternation, you can choose berzerker units to fight again.

Possible, but frightening if true. Using the tau ship as an example; why would you have the main gun on a unit unusable? RAW there is no reason to use that unit, due to its main weapon being unusuable, and as such people are much less likely to purchase the model. The BS on the Bio-Titan is clearly a simple typo, where it should have been BS3+, no unit in the game has a flat BS.

There's also stuff we assume are typos, because they're silly otherwise, like the current grenade discussion, or Malanthropes currently being... 90pts, IIRC? As opposed to the ~200 people were expecting.

Pic says nothing about this. Activation isn't even a game term or defined in the rules.

You choose a unit to fight. Then you choose another unit to fight, and so on, until every charging unit has fought. Each berzerker unit chosen to fight in this manner has now fought. Then you go on to alternating. You choose units to fight again. Units with BftBG can fight twice, which means you can choose them more than once, because specific rules override core rules.

Its a single unit for deployment and deep strike purposes, so you have a better chance of choosing who goes first and you can deep strike more of your dudes.

yeah so im right
theres no specific "fight" step, so i would default to doing the whole fight phase twice otherwise you would be making shit up

the fight phase is pile in, attack, consodilate, you cant just omit parts of it cause you feel that piling in isnt "fighting"

the extra moves are crucial otherwise the opposing player would just remove casualties so that your dudes wouldnt be able to attack the second time they fight

>> No.54022532

The Fight phase is the entire process of each player's corresponding Fight Sequences. For a unit to 'fight' is all the steps of the Fight sequence that come after step one "Choose a unit to fight with".

This means the Berzerkers get their two fights in one activation, which is absolutely fucking insane and actually better than double attacks.
