Minelayer

The user of this Special Skill can secure his point of deployment by placing a Mine, or the Deployable Weapon or piece of Equipment he carries, nearby to prevent enemy troopers from approaching.

MINELAYER DEPLOYMENT SKILL
Optional
REQUIREMENTS
  • Any enemy Camouflage and Hiding Marker cannot be inside the Trigger Area of the Deployable Weapon or piece of Equipment when it is deployed.
  • The deployment of the Deployable Weapon or piece of Equipment must follow the Deployment general conditions.
EFFECTS
  • In the Deployment Phase, this Special Skill allows to its user to place the Deployable Weapon or piece of Equipment inside his Zone of Control.
  • If the Deployable Weapon or piece of Equipment has the Disposable Trait, then it will be subtracted from the total of available uses.
  • If the user of this Special Skill deploys using any level of the Infiltration Special Skill, and fails the PH Roll, then in addition to the effects shown in the Infiltration Special Skill rule text, the Minelayer will lose the Deployable Weapon or piece of Equipment, subtracting it from the total of available uses if it has the Disposable Trait.


Minelayer Game Example:

In the Deployment Phase, a Muyib possessing the Minelayer Special Skill is deployed inside his Deployment Zone. The player must place the Viral Mine inside the Muyib's Zone of Control, but also inside the Deployment Zone.


Minelayer and Infiltration Game Example 1:

In the Deployment Phase, a Croc Man Minelayer uses his Infiltration Special Skill to deploy outside his Deployment Zone, but in his own half of the table. The player must place the Mine inside the Croc Man's Zone of Control, but always inside his own half of the table.


Minelayer and Infiltration Game Example 2:

In the Deployment Phase, a Croc Man Minelayer uses his Infiltration Special Skill to deploy in the enemy half of the table. The player must place the Mine inside the Croc Man's Zone of Control, but always outside the enemy Deployment Zone.


The ambush is common tactical maneuver in special operations. When carrying out an ambush the firepower is as important as the surprise factor. The use of deployable weapons like anti-personal mines guarantees both factors. An expert minelayer will know how to place the deployable devices in a way their arcs overlap to cover the maximum amount of the kill zone, in such a way that no enemy troop can escape the attack. The troops able to establish a mined area are highly valued for both their offensive and defensive capabilities. The minelayer typically chooses choke points as favored spots to deploy his weapons, but also within access points of his own deployment zone as anti-intruder protection.


FAQ

N3 Frequently Asked Question FAQ Version: 1.2
Q: When using the Minelayer Special Skill or deploying CrazyKoalas how do deployable weapons or Equipment work during Deployment?
A: The deployment of weapons or deployable Equipment must follow the Deployment rules.

They must always be within the area in which the trooper is allowed to deploy. For example, if the Minelayer trooper lacks the Infiltration Special Skill, the Deployable Weapons must be placed inside the trooper’s Deployment Zone. In the case that the trooper with Minelayer uses the Infiltration Special Skill, and this trooper deployes in his own half of the table, he only can deploy the mine inside his half of the table, never beyond.
