    Trooper A has Sixth Sense. Enemy trooper B moves, outside LoF but inside ZoC. A declares Dodge as ARO.

    Does A suffer the -3 penalty for no LoF?

    I had assumed no, but it was recently pointed out to me that a Requirement of Sixth Sense is that the trooper be the target of an attack. Does SS still negate the -3 penalty when A is not the target of an attack?

    We already know that there's a dot point in the Sixth Sense rules effect that isn't contingent on the requirements of the skill being met (stealth is not effective against troopers with the Sixth Sense skill - which is repeated elsewhere including in the page for the Stealth Skill, so by implication isn't beholden to Sixth Sense's target-of-an-attack requirement).

    Ergo, the requirement section of the skill is not necessarily universal. That doesn't actually answer whether it's meant to be a requirement for sixth sense models declaring dodge against troops moving in their ZOC, though.

    And here I will humbly request (again) that skills written with effects that are contingent on specific requirements (but not the over all skill) have those requirements actually written in the "effects" section of the skill box as an if...then... statement set of bullets. Nested bullets would be nice, too.

    I think we need answer on that question, cause wording on ignoring stealth is very confusing for the dodge part as well.

    Seems like the requirement line in Sixth Sense should be removed. All of the relevant effect state when they need other requirements (e.g. If the user is the target of a BS Attack through a Zero Visibility Zone)

    I know my gaming group, and I am afraid that unless this is addressed by a FAQ, added to the Wiki or answered by an 'Infinity Rules Staff' member they are not going to allow a trooper to be in contact silhoutte with themselves. let a trooper use Sixth Sense without first being attacked. :cold_sweat:

    (it worked before, it's worth trying)

    We literally had HelLois answer this today, you can. You even liked his answer. What more proof they need? :D
