Master of Arms distinction + Blast weapons

Recommended Posts

So, Master of Arms (ROB 93) allows an Astarte to treat any ranged weapon with the word "Astartes" in it as if it had one of two assigned special qualities. One of the quality options is Blast (2).

 

So, say you have this Distinction and are carrying a heavy bolter armed with metal storm rounds. Metal storm gives Bast (2). If the Battle-Brother applies his Master of Arms ability (and has the Blast 2 option with that) does the weapon now have Blast (4) or are the two Blast ratings non-cumulative (and thus Metal Storm might be a waste since the gun could already have Blast (2))?

It says quit clearly, in the Master of Arms-section (RoB p. 93) "...if the weapon already possesses the Special Quality applied by Master of Arms then no further effects are added."

So not really unclear at all.

Wow. Derp.

 

 

You won't need them anymore...  :rolleyes:

Either that or pick other Qualities, really. Felling/Scatter come to mind.

Stalker pistol described in FF (under Wolf Scout) has Accurate. But that just means it gets an addition +10 to hit when aiming.

 

I believe they added the bonus damage to Basic weapons to give them something comparable to the "can use in melee" option with pistols and the sheer existing power of heavies.
