No Saves from Big Guns
Some weapons are just so powerful that there is no chance of surviving a hit from them. These heavy guns are often mounted in tanks and self-propelled guns designed to break through enemy defensive lines.

Infantry teams, Gun teams, Passengers, and Unarmoured vehicles automatically fail their Saves when hit by a Breakthrough Gun or a Bunker Buster. This does not apply to Artillery Bombardments.

Bunker Busters Shooting Buildings
While buildings provide excellent protection from most weapons, some guns are big enough to make the building a deathtrap. One hit is likely to kill everyone inside.

When a weapon with the Bunker Buster attribute scores a hit on a team in a Building, it also scores a hit on every other Infantry or Gun team in the Building. If the Building has multiple rooms, or the target platoon is occupying several Buildings, the shooting player may choose which room and Building is hit by each shot.

Gun Shields
Manning a gun in the thick of battle is a hazardous job. To offset the increased vulnerability of gun crews to enemy fire, many guns have a bulletproof gun shield.

Gun Shields provide your Gun teams with Bulletproof Cover from shots fired from in front of a line drawn across the front of the team’s base. Shots fired from behind this line hit the unprotected crew behind it.

Gun Shields do not provide cover to teams moving At the Double, nor from artillery bombardments.
