Archives » Why my Riflemen never hit?
Year 16 Day 177 9:32

After 15 combat rounds, my 12 Riflemen have managed to miss all the shots.
I have armed them with Bowcasters and their Projectile Weapons skills are in general at least 3 (some are at 4).
Anyone knows the reason why my Battle Droids manage to land most of their hits while the Riflemen never do?

That's weird. What's their Dex? What distance are you at? If you get the shots "fly well overhead" message, you're at the wrong distance for the weapon.

Battle droids have a range of 0-5

Bowcasters have an effective range of 3-7

So I'm assuming you are sitting under 3 for them to be missing while the battle droids hit.

Their dexterity is 2 or 3.
It might be because I'm in the same spot as the targets.
I'll give it another try from 4 spaces away.

Yeah, do that. Bowcasters won't hit at range 0.

I tested them at a range of 4 and it was a massacre.
Thanks for the help, now I know I have to check the distance too.
