How are we to interpret the range for the Gatling Laser, Minigun, and Laser Rifle? Are they short range only (where short range is black?) If so, why are they templated differently from the Alien Blaster or Laser Pistol (which show an x where the long-range would be)?
They are short range black and long range black. If the weapon is only short range there is an x in the long range bit.
Their short and long range is both black. They just ran together on the card.
Just in case you didn’t get that part: long range is IN ADDITION to short range, not INSTEAD. So long range for those weapons is 2x black, whereas a weapon with short range red and long range green has a long range of red PLUS green.
