An attack is obstructed if the attacker
measures range through an
a ship or device obstructs an attack,
there is no inherent effect. If an obstacle
obstructs an attack, there is an additional effect.
- If at least one asteroid, debris cloud, or gas cloud
obstructs an attack, the defender
rolls one additional defense die during the Roll Defense Dice step.
- If at least one gas cloud obstructs an attack, the defender
may change 1 blank result to an result.
- The attacker measures from the closest point of its base to the closest
point of the defender's base that is in the
attack arc, therefore the
attacker cannot measure range from or to another point in order to avoid
measuring through an object.
- If multiple points are at equal distance from the attacker (for example,
if the attacker and defender are parallel), the attacker chooses one of
those lines for measuring range. In the example, the X-wing can choose
to make this attack be obstructed or not.
