Just checking. Does the fact that the HE Reaver Bow's multiple shots come from a magic weapon somehow save it from the -1 modifier for multiple shots? I have a BRB right here and I can't find the comments about multiple shots.

no you don't get -1 for multiple shots from the reaver bow, as well as you don't get -1 from shooting multiple shoots from the HE and DE Boltthrowers and the WE Bow of Loren

Strictly speaking, you only have to follow the multiple shots rules if the special rule is specially mentioned in the description of the weapon/war machine rules.

It's another one of those things that would help if GW listed the rules governing it in the weapons description (eg. does it suffer -1 to hit for multiple shots or not) instead of having a generic rule listed in the rulebook, with no indication what weapons follow it.

That said, I don't think it suffers the hit modifier because it doesn't state multiple shotsX3, but rather may shoot three times in the shooting phase. But it still is vague.

Thanks, all. Glad I'm not crazy...or at least not such that you would notice. :D
