Rapid Fire

Unit ability

These units are especially skilled at laying down heavy, accurate fire when they are in a static position.

Where your unit has the Rapid Fire ability:

  • While it is on Overwatch orders, add +1 to its Firepower value. [1]

Units that have the Heavy Weapons ability cannot use the Rapid Fire ability.

1. Difference from Epic 40,000:  In Epic 40,000, when the Rapid Fire ability is active it doubles the unit’s Firepower value. We’ve changed this so that the effect scales in linear fashion when we add Rapid Fire to units that have Firepower 2 or more. This doesn’t affect any of the original Epic 40,000 units that have Rapid Fire — they all have Firepower 1, so the net result remains the same.
