Rule queston on losing diffuse

Postby Garydee » Tue Jul 12, 2016 8:51 pm

In Nova, when you lose the weapon trait diffuse(firing a phaser) as you are trying to destroy a seeking weapon can you instead use the short range modifier(+1) to help kill the seeker?

Yes. When you "lose" a trait (such as Diffuse), that simply means the effects of that specific trait cannot be used in that specific attack. So, in this case, the Diffuse trait doesn't apply -- meaning the range modifiers are not doubled. However, the standard modifiers are still applied.
