React Fire to Fire and Move

Post by c0cky30 »

Player A has the phase.

Player A issues a move and Fire order.
He completes his movement and is about to Fire.

Player B decides to issue a React Fire order.

Q. If Player B wishes to Fire on Player A can he wait until Player A has completed his move and then react Fire to Player A before Player A shoots or does he have to opportunity Fire and roll a dice on a 4+ to shoot before Player A?

As far as I know

React fire is always after the target unit has fired.

Opportunity fire is always at any point in the targets move, and is rolled for unless at short range.

Therefore if a target moves and fires, then opportunity fire can let you fire before the mover fires, but if the phasing player just fires or fires then moves, you can only react fire AFTER the phasing player has fired.with no need to dice!

Yep.

There are only 2 options:

You either wait until the player has completely finished his current Action, such as Move or Move & Fire

OR

You Opportunity Fire at any point during the enemy move, including at the end of his move but before he fires.
