Fearlessness and Cluster missiles

Recommended Posts

As per title, would fearlessness add a hit result (assuming range 1 and other requirements) to each roll for clusters missiles or would it just be once for the entire attack?

Righto, wasn't sure if this fell under the Clusters being one technical attack as per the FCS interaction with them.

 

Clusters is not one attack. It's two attacks, with "after attacking/defender" effects skipped after the first one, and "declare target" skipped at the start of the second one. Thinking of it as "one attack" leads to all kinds of wrong interpretations.

 

Anything that says "When attacking" or "when defending" still triggers on both attacks.

Cluster Missiles and Twin Laser Turrets are two attacks and Fire Control System triggers after both attacks have been resolved at step 8 (see page 6 of the FAQ).

The sequence for Cluster Missiles or Twin Laser Turrets is normally this:

Step 1 - Declare Target

Step 2-3 - Roll and Modify Attack Dice

Step 4-5 - Roll and Modify Defense Dice

Step 6 - Compare Results

Step 7 - Deal damage (if you hit)

 

and once again for the second attack...

Step 2-3 - Roll and Modify Attack Dice

Step 4-5 - Roll and Modify Defense Dice

Step 6 - Compare Results

Step 7 - Deal damage (if you hit)

 
then on to...
Step 8 - After Attacking abilities (Fire Control System triggers here)
Step 9 - After Attacking Attacks
Step 10 - Remove destroyed ships.
 

As EdgeOfDreams said, don't think of Cluster Missiles or Twin Laser Turrets as one "technical" attack, because that thinking will steer you into all sorts of wrong conclusions.
