BT TechManual PDF CAT 35002 2007-2013 The Topps Company, Inc. Corrected Third Printing Published by Catalyst Game Lab

Conventional Infantry Weapons Table (Cont) p. 351 lists the Laser (Hellbore Assault) (Damage Type) as (B).  The (Damage Type) designation (B) per TM p. 148 is Ballistic Weapons. The Convention Infantry Weapons Table entries for other Laser weapons on pp. 349-350 has the (Damage Type) as (E) for per TM p. 148 is for Energy Weapons. Based on the information the information appears to be errata.

Recommended change:

Conventional Infantry Weapons (Cont) (p. 351) under Laser (Hellbore Assault): change the (Damage Type) value from (B) to (E).

Conventional Infantry Weapons BV Table p. 319 fourth column under Weapons has the entry of Particle Cannon (Support)*.

There is no information associated with the asterisk (*) on the right side of Particle Cannon (support) entry.

BT TechManual CAT 35002 2007 The Topps Company, Inc. Published by Catalyst Game Lab

Conventional Infantry Weapons BV Table p. 319 in the third column under Weapons has the entry of in the first colunm of Archaic Weapons* and Particle Cannon (Support) and under the last entry has "*Not included in calculating Anti-Mech BV".

The above information appears to apply only to Archaic Weapons.

Recommended change:

Conventional Infantry Weapons BV Table  (p. 409 fourth column) change Particle Cannon (Support)* to Particle Cannon (Support).

Update 11/01/2017 3:20 PM Pacific Daylight Time:

My apologies for suggesting that the asterisk (*) next to the Particle Cannon (Support)* be deleted. I confused myself after digging through the all the books and errata I have. The Particle Cannon (Support) is not part of an Anti-Mech attack based on the information provided on p. 220 or Total Warfare.

Recommended change:

Conventional Infantry Weapons BV Table  (p. 409 fourth column) under column 4 add the entry "*Not included in calculating Anti-Mech BV".

Again my apologies for the error.

Version 3.0 is out, containing the errata that will appear in the upcoming third printing of TM.  If you don't have the second printing of TM, you should keep your old TO errata document, as this new document just lists every correction that is being made from the second to the third printing ONLY.

Yes, the previous version was 3.1, and this version is 3.0: what happened?  The last release of TM was a PDF-only release.  I try to have these errata documents line up with the physical printings whenever possible.  As the book is at last getting a new printing, I'm changing the version number so that people using the document know that it lines up with the new printing.

No major changes in this new release, compared to the last one anyways.
Generally absent from the forums at this time.

Also contains faction deployment & rarity info and Quirk lists.
