    This thing comes up too often.

    So what is troopers burst with CC attack in ARO if it has (CC attack) +1 Burst ? 2 dice? 1 Dice?
    (Nourikas for example).

    Does that also apply to Martial Arts?
    Obviously it doesn't to Close Combat With Multiple Troopers since that MOD is written specifically for Reactive Turn, but Martial Arts does not seem to have anything implying it is not cancelled by reactive turn.

    They're hiding things in giant Red boxes that say "Important" again. Screenshot_20200812-161636_Chrome.jpg

    Fair enough, it was missing some keywords I was looking for so I missed it when skimming the text.

    For me , thats looks like a can use 2 dices in ARO with CC atack that labled CC Attack +1B (like Nourikas)

    That doesnt however applies to Pistols that have +1 Burst, as @HellLois mentioned.

    Wrong. I refer you to HellLois' post:
    https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/oddity-with-nourkias.37089/page-2#post-341144

    tl;dr - Martial Arts L5 grants +1B and works in Reactive, because MA5 is a CC Special Skill. CC Attack (+1B) is a Burst MOD to a Common Skill, and, as all Burst MODs granted by skills, works only in Active.

    Now my main question is - how do we decipher Pistol (+1B). Pistol is not a Skill, it's a weapon. Do we treat this as BS Attack (+1B) applying only to Pistol or is it some other kind of descriptor?

    Why? That box is from the Martial Arts page and only applies to CC Special Skills.

    As IJW posted, burst mods normally only apply during the Active Turn.

    Out of curiosity, and to help with wiki stuff, where would you expect to find information for how MODs in the unit profile work?
