Dead Man's Switch Card

Card Text/Abilities[]

When you are destroyed, each ship at Range 1 suffers one damage.


  • If IG-88A destroys a ship equipped with Dead Man’s switch at Range 1, the effect of Dead Man’s Switch is resolved during the “Deal Damage” step, before IG-88A recovers 1 shield after the attack. (X-Wing FAQ, Version 4.2.1, Updated 07/01/2016)
  • If a ship with Dead Man's Switch flees the battlefield, Dead Man's Switch's ability resolves before the ship is removed, but is measuring only from the portion of the ship that is inside the play area. If the entirety of the ship is outside the play area, the ability does not affect other ships. (X-Wing FAQ, Version 4.4.0, Updated 10/25/2017)
