    What is a BS Weapon?

    It's not defined anywhere. The working definition is a Weapon that performs BS Attacks. This fits with all known interactions.

    No, because Forward Observer is a Special Skill, not a BS Weapon.

    That doesn't stop Flash Pulse being a BS Weapon.

    Yes. It's listed as a BS Weapon, it doesn't have it's own Skill, it's also a weapon used by declaring the BS Attack Common Skill.

    But in contrary to "normal" BS Weapons is not (explicitly) written that's a BS weapon.

    It is a weapon (like a knife).
    It is used to perform BS attack (like Forward Obserwer for example).

    There is unfortunetaly nothing which says that a "BS weapon is a weapon which is used to perform BS attacks". Unless I'm missing an definition somewhere ;P

    No, Spitfire (for example) has a passage that it is a "BS weapon".

    You're inadvertently claiming that Akrylate-kanone, Blitzen, D.E.P., etc also aren't BS Weapons. Unlike Jammer, those three barely even claims to be a weapon (Jammer says it's a "technical weapon")

    Dunno.

    Would be nice to have some definition or consistent naming would it ?

    (like a trooper definition ;P)

    Welp, thats me avoiding any Spec Ops tournament without a soft ban.

    CB needs to reduce the amount of this shit in their game, not turn it up to 11.

    not for a long time 'round these parts. If I think hard enough I can almost taste the air of those pre-daedalus days. It was sweet, like nectar – you could almost drink it.

    Technically Forward Observer is a BS weapon too, which makes the FAQ ruling calling it out somewhat nonsensical.

    The rules literally say it's an attack with a BS weapon.

    Where it is written it's a weapon ?

    LoL you are right.

    • The use of Forward Observer is a form of Attack with a BS Weapon that uses the WIP attribute, and instead of forcing the target to make an ARM Roll, forces him to enter the Targeted state.

    Oh boy, apparently we didn't sacrificed enough Bothan spies polish Warcors to get CB read their own rules.
