(Answered) Shooting Swarming Infantry off a 'Mech
« on: 07 March 2011, 02:16:08 »
This weekend, my group had an instance where one of their 'mechs was swarmed by Djinn, and was, essentially being
tag-teamed by them when it did the "Fall and throw the Djinn off."  Another player decided to help by shooting the
Djinn off.

The rules list what happens when one shoots at a unit that is being swarmed, but do not list how to handle
shooting at the battlearmour swarming a 'mech. What is the correct way to handle this sort of situation?

I believe this was answered on the old boards.

Swarming infantry are not a valid target and cannot be fired at.
