I've heard a number of people remark about how they don't care for Cluster Missiles. Those are the missiles with a range of 1-2 that do two seperate attacks with 3 attack die. You can only use a focus for one of them (offense or defense). The idea is that the Concussion Missile is better with 4 dice and one blank gets turned into a hit.
What about the ability to shoot Cluster Missiles at short range? Wouldn't that mean you get an extra die, as well. If so, you can get two 4 die attacks! Most Rebels wouldn't expect it and it could be a great way to take someone out quick. Or at least hurt them bad. If you had a focus to ensure you could make one of those hits do some damage, you have the potential to take out an Xwing with one click of the fire button.
Do you have to declare your weapons, etc to your opponent? Is it an open game?
