9.3.2 Fire against routed platoon
If platoons marked as “Routed” are fired upon, they must move again towards
friendly lines, but in this case they use their full regular MP and pay movement costs corresponding to the terrain they pass through.
To trigger this effect one needs only achieve any effect on the combat table, even if the terrain divisor prevents any step losses from being inflicted. As the same way than for routed movement triggered when the routed marker is placed, the company or platoon shall be eliminated if one of the two above described cases are meet, and alternative legal routes may be used too. This movement shall be performed even the company or platoon has been previously marked as finished.

So basically if im firing against a routed platoon I can't hit them for damage and eliminate them?

If you shots and do not make a hit the enemy must move again towards friendly lines, but in this case they use their full regular MP and pay movement costs corresponding to the terrain they pass through

If you causes a hit the enemy must check morale and apply the results

Is it true, Juan? You can make a routed unit to rout again even if you do not make a hit? It is not my understanding of the rule which says "To trigger this effect one need only achieve any effect on the combat table, even if the terrain divisor prevents any step losses from being inflicted." To me, you have to at least make a hit.

Looks like no hit is required... Just shooting at them causes them to rout

You are right! Shot with no hit... Platoon flees. Shot with a hit, and they must make a Morale check.

Hi Javier, if the roll yields no result, does it still cause the routed units to retreat? No result is still an "effect"? I can't understand.

Right, you just need to fire against a routed unit. This is the meaning of "just cause a dice roll on the combat chart". At least this is what is written in the PtH rulebook

Maybe it should read.

If firing on a routed unit, if the roll succeeds roll for damage and morale, if the roll fails the routed unit still retreats but they use their full regular MP and pay movement costs corresponding to the terrain they pass through.
