Shooting a rider

Recommended Posts

If a rider with a horse or such is being shot by a missile, how should you determine if the missile will hit either the rider or the beast? Is it 50 / 50 change when scoring a successful hit or something else? I presume the attacker would like to hit a specific target.

Take a look at the rules for shooting into melee, on page 214.  I would use those rules for this situation.

if you aim, or score a special or Critical, then you should hit the right one, otherwise do as Marc suggests and use the shooting into melee.

Also consider the rules for taking cover, with the mount providing a similar service as a shield may. Hitting the opposite leg should automatically resulte in hitting the mount (or the saddle), and depending on the situation, other portions may be covered - a frontal attack to the abdomen may well hit the mount's head or neck instead.
