explain, please.

actually, yeah, I too have always been curious about this.
What is it that makes Gauss guns so... potent?

But... in the game, what are the stat differences like? Does the basic infantry weapon actually 1-shot enemy tanks? Or is that just fluff and flavor?
I'm not interested in the lore or description, I want to know about the game design.
#58 - yoshtar (03/03/2015) [-]
like, i got that part, the fluff of how a Necron gun works...
what i'm wondering is if there's some sort of special rule that reads like rending does that allows a gauss gun to blast a baneblade to shreds with a single hit?

>>#55, Most Necron weapons have the word "gauss" in them, but they all shoot some kind of molecule-stripping super-lightning rather than a magnetically-accelerated projectile. In the Third Edition Codex, gauss weapons automatically wounded infantry and automatically caused glancing hits to vehicles on a to-hit roll of 6. This was devastatingly powerful at the time, as it meant that Necrons could chew through vehicles like no tomorrow, but was rather reduced in effectiveness in Fifth Edition, as most vehicles could no longer be destroyed through glancing hits alone, though with the introduction of Hull Points in Sixth Edition, gauss weapons are once again a lot more dangerous to vehicles (three glancing hits -- which a full squad of 20 Necron Warriors can easily supply -- is enough to wreck most regular vehicles and expose a super-heavy ). That said, Gauss weapons were reduced in effectiveness by the Fifth Edition Codex, which removed the auto-wound property (anti-infantry effectiveness was moved to their new new "Tesla" weapons). However with the advent of the 7th edition codex gauss weapons have regained their auto-wounding on 6's [citation needed].

Gauss flayer: The trusty gauss flayer is the standard weapon (in fact, the only weapon) wielded by Necron Warriors. Its stats are equivalent to the bolter, with the additional "Gauss" rule mentioned above. Ghost Arks and Doomsday Arks mount an array of five of these guns on each side.
Gauss blaster: The gauss blaster is the standard weapon of Necron Immortals; it is basically a Gauss flayer with slightly improved strength and armor-piercing capability. A unit of Tomb Blades can also choose to take twin-linked pairs of them to specialize in vehicle-hunting.
Gauss cannon: The iconic weapon of Necron Destroyers is their shoulder-mounted gauss cannon. Though it's only as strong and long-ranged as a gauss blaster, it has more shots and will tear through all but the toughest armor suits.
Heavy gauss cannon: Necron Heavy Destroyers get heavy gauss cannons, and Triarch Stalkers can choose a twin-linked set of them as a primary weapon. They only get one shot, but it's as powerful as a lascannon.
Gauss flux arc: The gauss flux arc is basically like the gauss flayer, but firing more shots at a time. Monoliths mount one at each corner, and they are capable of choosing their targets independently.
