Could someone tell me what the omega weapon for the Atlas class titan does? It states if there are more than 2 escorts within range 3 destroy 1d3 escorts within range 3. What is "1d3" ???

1d3 is a random number from 1-3. Roll one die, halve the result and round up.

Hey thanks Chris. That clears it up for me. I hadn't played that scenario yet because of that. Now I can. By the way a great game. Love it.

Thanks, Jake. I'm glad you're enjoying the game. Thank you for playing!

(Sorry about the confusion, too. I just kind of assumed everyone would get that and that's bad rulebook writing to assume something like that.)

Are the destroyed escorts randomly chosen from those within 3 hexes of the Atlas?

Or does it prefer the closest escorts (and in case of tie among the closest, it chooses randomly)? (I hesitantly assume this is the answer...)

Or does it have some preference of escort types (e.g. killing DD before FF)?

Or does the player get to choose?

I'm fairly certain the player chooses from available escorts within range, but don't have the Titan sheet in front of me to confirm.

The Atlas Omega weapon text is viewable on the original/biggest size of this gallery image:


It just says:

Atlas Class Titan wrote:

Interceptor Drones
If there are more than 2 escorts within range 3:
Destroy 1d3 escorts within range 3.


I considered that "Destroy" might mean the player chooses, but that seemed too merciful and easy for the player. Since other weapons prefer shooting close targets, I supposed (apparently incorrectly) that this weapon worked the same... So I ended up losing 2 DDs instead of 2 FFs, doh...

I wouldn't consider being shot at by an Omega weapon merciful... Anyways, thanks for the text and image. That confirms my earlier answer. There is no specific rule, so the player can choose.
