FAQ[]

  • Multiple ships that have Swarm Tactics equipped may use it in sequence to give multiple ships the same high pilot skill value. For example, Howlrunner equipped with Swarm Tactics may pass her pilot skill of 8 to a Black Squadron Pilot equipped with Swarm Tactics, who may then pass a pilot skill value of 8 to an Academy Pilot.
  • Some abilities alter the pilot skill value of a ship. If several game effects alter the pilot skill of a ship, only the most recent effect is applied. For example, if a Green Squadron Pilot equips Veteran Instincts, it increases its pilot skill from 3 to 5. However, if it later receives the Damaged Cockpit damage card faceup, its pilot skill is reduced from 5 to 0 (rather than 2). Next round, however, Wedge Antilles can use Swarm Tactics to raise its pilot skill to 9. (X-Wing FAQ, Version 3.1.1, Updated 07/24/2015)
