Discord Missile launch clarification

Recommended Posts

The Discord Missile is launched at the beginning of the engagement phase (as opposed the system phase for proton bombs/proximity mines etc, or in the end phase in the case of the DRK-1 probe droid).

Also the card from the Discord Missile does not use the keyword "attack"

Does this imply that the Vulture droid (or presumably the Hyena droid) may still make a primary attack during that engagement phase, despite having already launched a missile?

Launching isnt the same as attacking, so yes. Discord missiles are launching an object, other missiles you attack with.

Thanks. That's pretty much what I expected but wasn't sure if it was too good to be true 🙂

A good way to tell if something is an attack or not is to ask yourself this..

Am i choosing a defender? or  Is a ship defending against this?

For discord missiles, the answer is no. You don't pick a defender, they don't roll defense dice. You are not even required to aim them at a ship. You can launch them in empty space on the first turn if you really wanted to.

This is sound, but there's one other way to tell if something is an attack 😉 look at the card...

Does it have an Attack: header?
