When Reinforcements enter, they move onto the map, paying for it with AP, Opportunity action, CAP or a card. Individually or as a group movement (possibly transported).

But when a Firefight says that units enter as part of Setup, they all enter at once, un-activated, without cost. Is this correct?

Re: Enter as Reinforcements Vs Enter during Setup: During Setup is for free?
I've always played it that they enter by paying the AP costs just as other reinforcements do.

Units entering the board at the start or as reinforcements are a player action and cost points.

Units specifically setup on a map hex at the start of the game obviously are setup for free.

The above answers are correct. Official answer from Academy Games:

Quote:
Yes, using your example given, in round 1 of Firefight 01: Partisans, the German units enter just like reinforcements, paying for movement in the same way as described in the rule book. You can also delay their entry for a subsequent round, just as you could with reinforcements. Unless otherwise specified in the firefight setup, this is how all setups like this work in CoH.

Thank you for being a fan!

But when a Firefight says that units enter as part of Setup, do they all enter at once, un-activated, without cost - or do they enter just like Reinforcements, paying for it? If they enter like Reinforcements, may they also delay entering for later, like Reinforcements? (Example: Firefight 1 - Partisans.)

Kind regards
