Need some clarification please. Does the Cadian stratagem overlapping fields of fire make plasmas safe because it adds +1 to hit rolls or not.? I’ve read a lot that say it makes plasmas safe but some guys at my local say it doesn’t because modifiers are added after the roll..?

Plasma blows up on an unmodified roll of 1. You would still die if you roll a 1 and get the +1 to hit.

It used to in 8th, but "Plasma blows up on an unmodified roll of 1." now, as P5freak said, so it does not protect anymore.

(Overcharged) plasma weapons were recently changed, by and large, to read:

"If any unmodified hit rolls of 1 are made for attacks with this weapon profile, the bearer is destroyed after shooting with this weapon"

Up until this change was implemented, positive hit roll modifiers made plasma less likely/impossible to kill the bearer, and negative hit roll modifiers made it more likely to kill the bearer. That is no longer the case.

If you stand still as Cadians or order them with Take Aim you can still reroll those 1's.

Which has not changed, as you could do that before.

I'm aware, I'm purely letting the OP know that there's still methods to minimise deaths by overheating plasma.

Supercharging plasma is not the answer. It is the question. And the answer is "Yes."

All you have to do is fire three rounds a minute, and stand
