Salamander Into the Fires of Battle = 3 shots every turn for whole combat?

4 posts in this topic

Into the Fires of Battle is a free action to activate, giving Salamaders a half-move and two standard attacks with ranged weapons.

 

It is not sustained.  It has no duration given.  Therefore, it is active for the entire combat it was activated in.

 

Is this correct?  This gives Salamanders Bolter Assault, but with every ranged weapon, for an entire combat instead of just one round.

No, you only get to use the benefits of the power for the single turn it is activated.

 

Like furious charge, squad advance, and bolter assault; once activated you immediately take the action allowed then the benefit ends. If the power specified, "For X number of turns," then it would remain in effect until X turns go by.

 

In the case of the above mentioned powers and Into the Fires of Battle, the duration of the power is specified as, "immediately," meaning it occurs once then expires.

 

A short caveat on out of initiative powers like the ones listed above: a character can only ever benefit from an out of initiative action as a result of a power ONCE every turn. For instance one brother can activate Into the Fires of Battle and another can then activate Furious Charge, but any character using Into the Fires of Battle could not benefit from Furious Charge as they've already made an out of initiative action.

Hmm, I can buy that "immediately" is a duration.  So that's that.
