This is a list of all known and referenced keywords.[edit | edit source]

A keyword is an ability possessed by units or weapons. Click expand to see the Rules Reference's glossary on Keywords.





  • There are two types of keywords: unit keywords and weapon keywords.
  • A unit keyword is an inherent ability of a unit and it is presented on a unit’s card or added to a unit by an upgrade card.
  • A weapon keyword is an inherent ability of a weapon and is presented as part of a weapon on either a unit’s card or an upgrade card.
  • Each unit keyword provides a unit with an ability, including the timing of when the ability is used as well as the effect of the ability.
  • Each weapon keyword adds an ability to the attack pool in which it is included.
  • The front of each unit card provides reminder text of each of that unit’s keywords. The back of each unit card provides reminder text for each of that unit’s weapon keywords.
  • The reminder text is not an exhaustive description of the rules for a keyword. Rather, it is there to help players remember how and when to resolve each keyword. If a player has questions about how a keyword works, that player should refer to that keyword’s glossary entry.
