For the benefit of @Arkhos94 and the unresolved questions list. I don't think we ever managed to resolve this one in the New FAQ Stealth thread as it got off track. Does a disabled Comms Equipment still generate ARO for Hacking and Assault Hacking Devices? A) No, a Hacking Program only grants ARO when it can have an effect on the target. B) Yes, just like against a trooper Reseting to clear IMM-2, a Disabled Trooper will still generate an ARO. Why is this relevant? There are several hackers in game, particularly skirmishing Killer Hackers, who both have Stealth and can combine their order with ARO-generating units such as Deployable Repeater carrying troopers or link in a Fireteam with troopers who have Comms Equipment such as Kuang Shi Control Devices. Moving inside the ZoC of an enemy Repeater will thus yield unopposed Hacking Attacks because the enemy Hacker(s) can't even Reset (it is not their own ZoC) yet still has an ARO against the Comms Equipment.
