(Answered) Damaged during the movement phase
« on: 28 January 2024, 18:52:43 »
What happens if a unit is damaged during the movement phase, and that damage either destroys the unit or causes a critical effect, like a weapon hit or fire control?

The example, a unit skidded on ice, and took 1 point of damage from the skid. That went to structure and caused a weapon hit - but it could have easily been the unit’s last structure and destroyed it.

I know the SPA Combat Intuition specifically states its damage effects are immediate, but I think in my situation damage and effects are still applied in the End Phase.

Yes. All damage effects, including destruction, don't take place until the End Phase (unless stated otherwise).  So the unit survives the ice until the End Phase.
