Ok so we had an issue at our LGS the other day and there was some confusion with Accurate Shot. A&E Boba was the character in question. The one player wanted to use Accurate Shot and Missiles to get to the character in the middle of a group to optimize Missiles damage.

When using a Special Ability (in this case Missiles) does it check for Accurate Shot, or do normal targeting rules apply. (I.E. only being able to target an enemy with cover if he is the closest)

When in doubt, read the rules for clues. The definition of Accurate Shot on Boba Fett's card says "This character can attack an enemy with cover, even if it's not the nearest enemy." I underlined and bolded the word 'attack' because it's your clue. If the definition of an ability uses the word 'attack' it's referring specifically to a normal attack, NOT a special ability.

So, in short: No, you cannot use Accurate Shot with Missles (or any other Special Ability). Accurate Shot only modifies regular attacks.

It wasnt my game, but my opinion was asked. I said it wasnt an attack but a special ability so other SA's that check for attacks dont work.

.....it had just been bothering me a few days and I was wondering if I made the right call.

thx!!!!

This is one ruling that I don't like at all. I think that your special abilities should benefit from Accurate shot, unfortunately it is the correct ruling.
