Range Bonus

During an attack, the attacker or defender can roll additional dice depending on the attack range. For attack range 0-1, the attacker rolls one additional attack die during the Roll Attack Dice step. For attack range 3, the defender rolls one additional defense die during the Roll Defense Dice step.

  • Range bonuses are applied for all attacks unless stated otherwise. Some special weapons have a small ordnance icon on them to indicate that range bonuses cannot be applied with attacks using those weapons.
  • Although the range bonus applies at range 0, a ship cannot normally perform a primary attack at range 0.
