Human Sphere & Paradiso FAQ Entry
WHAT ABOUT WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT THAT CANNOT BE SEIZED BY THE BOOTY SPECIAL SKILL?

If a piece of Equipment, BS Weapon or CC Weapon is described in the Infinity. Human Sphere or Infinity. Campaign: Paradiso rulebooks as unsusceptible to plundering via the Booty Special Skill, consider it to have the Non-Lootable Trait.

  • Prior Deployment. You must place this weapon or piece of Equipment on the game table during the Deployment Phase.
  • Reflective. The effects of this weapon will be also applied to troopers equipped with a Multispectral Visor of any Level, or any other piece of Equipment that specifies the same.
  • Silent. If you use this weapon or piece of Equipment to make an Attack while outside the target's LoF, that target cannot react by Changing Facing or apply the Warning! rule unless he survives the Attack (that is, isn't in a Null state after the Attack is resolved).
    • Additionally, enemies without LoF in whose Zone of Control the Attack took place or was declared cannot declare AROs or apply the Warning! rule unless the target survives the Attack. This means that these enemies must delay their ARO declaration until after the Attack is resolved.
  • Speculative Fire. This weapon can perform Speculative Fire.
  • State. This weapon or piece of Equipment can cause the target to enter the state indicated by the profile
  • Suppressive Fire (SF). This weapon can engage in Suppressive Fire, substituting its usual profile with the SF Mode profile.
  • Targetless. This weapon utilizes a Special Ammunition capable of firing without designating an enemy as a target.
  • Technical Weapon. This weapon can make BS Attacks, but uses the WIP Attribute in place of BS. When using this weapon, consider all rules and MODs that would affect the trooper's BS as affecting his WIP Attribute instead.
  • Throwing Weapon. This weapon can make BS Attacks, but uses the PH Attribute in place of BS. When using this weapon, consider all rules and MODs that would affect the trooper's BS as affecting his PH Attribute instead.
  • Zone of Control (ZC). The Area of Effect of this weapon or piece of Equipment is equivalent to the user's Zone of Control (a radius of 8 inches).
