Zombies and Quad Gun

Postby Lord Krungharr » Fri Dec 28, 2012 1:03 pm

The Plague Zombie rule says they are Chaos Cultists w Fearless, FNP, Slow and Purposeful, no options, and just a close combat weapon. However it does not say they lack a BS, that is, they don't have different stats listed with a BS of 0. Nor did the little FAQ mention anything about them not having a BS, but we know their autopistols are just clubs :)

So what are people's opinions of them manning a Quad Gun? I would vote yes.

Quote from a different thread on the same topic:

"Any gun used"
It does not matter if they are holding it, are equipped with it or are manning battlefield debris. If they are using it then they are using it as a club. I think RAI, RAW and fluff are in alignment with this. Zombies are too stupid to pull a trigger, much less find and release any safety, manipulate the controls to adjust yaw and pitch while tracking a target and finally using the correct appendage (which is probably not a finger) to active the firing mechanism. I dare say it would not be a simple thing for one of us to use a quad-.50 today. If they can not even point and shoot a pistol they have no hope in hades of firing a gun emplacement.


No shooting.

Hmmm, I usually do go for the RAI, but I sure would love to have zombies manning that Quad Gun, and there are strong cases for and against it. I think we'll have to add this to an INIT FAQ request.
