This question came up last night while we were playing a game of Warmachine. A friend was running a Cyclone, and he noticed that the Dual Covering Fire special action is an *Action, not an *Attack.

Does this mean that it can be used even if the Cyclone is engaged? The Action is attached to the ranged weapon however, so does this make it the equivalent of an *Attack?

1 Answer 1


So, found this little tidbit here:


It seems that, yes, they can, for the reasons I stated above - because it is a special action, not a special attack.

  • FYI - there is nothing wrong with accepting your own answer if you deem it to be correct. I think there is a 48 hour minimum waiting time before you are allowed to by the system though.
