When using the multiple attack roll method, what is the correct way to apply the effects of SPAs that affect the singular "attack roll" of the normal method?

Example SPAs:
  • Weapon Specialist (ASCE Page: 101) Attack does 50% damage if attack roll misses by 1.
    Lucky (ASCE Page: 97) Unit gains a reroll of an unsuccessful attack.
    Float Like a Butterfly (ASCE Page: 96) Forces enemy to reroll successful attack.

And are there any modifications to the Marksman (ASCE Page: 97) or Sharpshooter (ASCE Page 99) rules when using the multiple attack method? Or do these SPAs just really increase the chance of a critical by giving multiple chances each round instead of the normal one?

Any updates on this? The weather is warming, and pandemic patio gaming season is approaching...

I mean, part of this was answered in regards to how to deal with damage reduction, but nothing about increased critical chance or rerolling. I disagree with the 'Answered' tag for this thread. At best we are 33% answered.

Actually, maybe I'm not looking in the correct spot. Where is the errata on this? AS: Commander’s Edition Errata v3.0 doesn't address any of my questions that I can see.

Errata goes to the errata threads first.  Errata documents are only collected once a year (and only for certain titles).

Oh ok, that makes sense why I didn't find it. Ok, so Weapon Specialist just works totally differently with Multiple Attack Method, that's fine, it's functional now, lol.

THANKS!
