Demo Charges
« on: November 16, 2005, 03:18:44 PM »
Under Demo charges  C9 and Detcord both state Remote Detonator required does this allow anyone with demo training the right to purchase the remote detonator?

as far as I know only the Capitol Airborne infantry Demo Spec has a Remote Detonator.

Yes i know they're the only squad that has the remote detonator but the question still remains if anyone with demo training can use c-9 and detcord should they also be allowed to have the remote detonator?

Unless FAQ'd otherwise, you may not purchase a Remote Detonator.  This only precludes the use of Detcord as the C9 charges only require a Detonator if you want to fire them remotely.

well, wouldn't that give a really unfair advantage to that unit?...

I do not have my rulebook in front of me (I think that it is in the car), but is there a points cost listed for a Remote Detonator?...If there is not, why would that line be added to the description for Detcord?

The point Cost listed for the Detonator in the equipment area was, like all the pC's in the equipment section, left on by accident and wasn't meant to go to printing.

As such, only one unit can use Detcord but if you want to use it for anything other than obstacle clearing, you're insane.  As far as Obstacle clearing goes, either C9 or Detcord work equally well for the cost.  So really, it's more or less a non-issue as future units will recieve remote detonators and current units will (almost) never use C9 as an offensive weapon.

Instead of saying new units will have the remote detonator and the old units wont use it, would'nt it be easier to just let anyone with demo training purchase the detonator. I dont see where this would be game unbalancing.

it's not really unbalancing as it is now.  It's not even that useful of an item to have.  As it is, it's just something to set everyone apart.

It would be nice if I could arm a specialist model, such as the Golden Lion Demo Specialist, with this item, just to keep my full options open.

*snicker* It's funny because it's a gross abuse of human rights!

Perhaps if they had remote detonators for _each_other's_  explosives....

The other reason they can't put them down is they may get mixed up-think of the embarrasment of running into an enemy formation and pressing the trigger only to blow your buddy up fifty feet back.

I wonder what the Hallmark card for that would say....

I noticed that I accidently exploded you before you could regain your lost honor...

I want to see the picture on the front of that.
