Obstacles

Recommended Posts

Do bombs and mines count as obstacles for the purpose of boosting? If not, am I correct in assuming that a ship can boost through a bomb/mine without detonating it?

The only things that count as obstacles are Asteroids.

 

Bomb tokens do not count as overlapping as far as any non-detonation mechanic is concerned. You are perfectly welcome to boost or barrel-roll through them.

In fact, this is one of the ways to keep a Proximity Mine from killing its intended target.

The newest FAQ changed Proximity Mines, they now detonate whenever a base or maneuver template overlaps them, not just when a ship executes a maneuver and the base or template overlaps.  They still don't count as obstacles, though.
