Unlimited range items tend to only go in straight lines - but haven't got my copy handy to check if this item has some different rules attached to it for any reason

well, the card says "Does not Wound. Target Retreat 2 spaces (follow arrows in reverse). Does not require LoS."
and that's it, no range, does not specify what kind of target (alien, character), only says the target retreats 2 spaces
and has a clarification in the last page of the manual; if an alien is pushed, then it push other aliens and characters, and characters suffers pushing damage, as usual

the question is still there: this item has a range? targets any alien in the board?

thanks for answer

We have played it as having no range and being able to target any alien on the board because, as you say, no range is mentioned.

Interested to hear what others think.

Hello everyone,

Stress Beacon is an Item and does not have a range characteristic. You can target any Alien on the Game Board, even if you do not have Line of Sight with it.

As with the Sonic Blaster, you can take advantage of this ability to move several Aliens backwards by targeting the first in line.

Thanks!
