View Full Version : Distributed as shooting...

Came up with this problem the other day. Hellpit abomination was in combat and rolled the avalanche of flesh attack which includes 2d6 hits distributed as shooting.

I believe this was to stop the owning player from targeting characters but still counts as melee attacks. My opponent figured that distributed as shooting was a shooting attack and not hand to hand. So no Hand weapon and shield save etc... this just didn't make sense to me, any one know how or where distributed as shooting is explained in a way that would make him see it my way... or correct me?

Distributed as shooting does not mean shooting attack. This is like impact hits from a chariot. You do indeed get hand weapon and shield bonus as they are close combat attacks, but they are distributed as shooting.
