The Pursuit of Happiness expansion > Now on Kickstarter!
Per the rules, Weapons with a range of 4+ must always shoot in a straight line.
However, I cannot find any reference to Alien Abilities that have a range of 4+. Are these, too, limited to targeting Characters in a straight line, or do they count a path of squares orthogonally and diagonally in any path that can reach a Character?
Looking for an official ruling or rule citation, not "how I played it".
Thanks in advance for any answers!
I believe you were somehow confused. The 4+ in some Alien's abilities (such as Shooter Soldiers) refers to the roll result. For each Character within range (their range is 3) you roll a Hit die and on a 4 or higher, that Character loses 1 life.
At the time being there are no Aliens with a range greater than 3.
I hope this helps.
