Just want to clarify something. Do you get VPs for attrition kills made by Artillery tokens? Do Orbital snipers and Shredders then also get VPs for killing units? If not, why?

Thanks!

You get the points for Artillery tokens because they are resolved during the battle phase and count as though they were an extra unit deployed to that battle. Orbital strike and shredders remove units out of battle and therefore do not score points.

Design wise, the why is because the payout for a well used Orbital Sniper/Shred is that you can dominate a battle to win territory, take prisoners, and score the crystals for more points. Orbital/Shredders are way more flexible entities and so they don't produce points.
