Greetings fellow Denizens, I recently came across some info I thought was interesting and want to confirm it either way.

Regarding venoms and raiders jinking/shooting..... My reading and interpretation according to the BRB is that Jinking ONLY AFFECTS the Unit(raider/Venom) that HAS the rule........so if I read this right, ONLY the Venom or Raider is affected by Jinking in regards to shooting BECAUSE any of the units-Wyches,Warriors,Wracks,what have you- that are embarked and may be embarked, DO NOT have the Jink rule attached to their stats or options, so they would be able to fire NORMALLY(unless said skimmer moved 12" then snapfire anyway). Does this seem correct..??

AGAIN I am only going AS THE RULEBOOK CALLS IT ,Jinking affects ONLY the UNIT that HAS it as a basic stat to its capabilities...

Thank you!

This has been a big topic between my local meta, as it's hard to do determine what's intended. Because when a vehicle must fire snapshots from a result, the passengers take a LD test. Yet jinking specifys the unit must fire, so the debate of are the passengers and the transport the same unit is the determining factor, I've seen it played as they have to, or they don't. Personally I like the idea of the LD test, it's balanced, and makes sense compared to other rulings. If you get called out for not firing snapshots, you are technically right in your reading and understanding.

tl;dr You are correct in your understanding, for the different metas though it may vary.

The rules are very clear. Unit in transport that jinked does not fire snaps because of that jink. Dont anyone even try to tell you otherwise. :-) Seriously.

Look it up under the rules of transports it says it there. Don't quote me but I seem to remember having this question and we looked it up and said they had to snap shoot.

My bet is that this mechanic will be our main defensive tactic in the new dex. Depends on the weapons available to the transported units OFC. And source of certain cheesiness...
