"From Any Point" And Determining Whether A Ground Vehicle Is 50% Obscured


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

The update to the CRB for ground vehicles now states the process for determining whether a ground vehicle is obscured is as follows: 

"During the Determine Number of Obscured Miniatures step, a ground vehicle miniature’s silhouette must be at least 50% obscured from any point of the attacker's silhouette to count as obscured. Ground vehicles do not give cover to themselves."  (CRB pg. 37). 

In adding the "from any point" language, is this intended to mean that the player performing the attack can choose any singular point on the unit leader's silhouette from which to determine whether the defending ground vehicle miniature is 50% obscured? 

For example, a rebel veteran unit declares an enemy ATST as a defender of an attack and between them is a piece of obstacle terrain that, in pregame, the players agreed would provide cover to the ATST if it were 50% obscured during the "Determine Number of Obscured Miniatures" step of an attack.  From the top of the rebel veteran unit leader's silhouette, the ATST's silhouette is not obscured by the intervening obstacle terrain.  However, from the bottom of the rebel veteran unit leader's silhouette, the ATST's silhouette is more than 50% obscured by that same piece of obstacle terrain.  

Would the attacking player be able to choose the top of the rebel veteran unit leader's silhouette for the line of sight/obscure check to get the out of cover shot? 

Thanks for your time!

If, from any point, the defending vehicle's silhouette is 50% obscured, it will count as obscured and benefit from cover.

In your example, the attacker may not choose one point to avoid the target benefiting from cover.

Hope this helps,
