Pathfinders have a weapon with the Sniper rule. They ALSO have their own rule which gives them a better AP value on a to-hit of 5+. They are not related, both apply, nothing complicated. Its a Sniper Rifle (per BRB) that has a chance to become AP1 in addition to the fun stuff from the "Sniper" rules.

Archaon18 Precision shot is the 'Eye of Vengeance'allocation. NOT the AP1 rule at the C:E have. This only happens on 6's.

Doubtful. The way I'm reading it, is that 'to hit' rolls of 5+ would sure give you AP1, but only actual rolls of 6 would qualify for wound allocation. They're still pretty good though ...

Mmm .... double-ninja'd ...

Archaon18 The shots are AP2 on 5+. The rule does not say, unless FAQed, that this alters Precision Shots, only the Ranger/Pathfinder only AP2 rule.

Desolatemm No, its an entirely separate rule from the Precision shot rule. Pathfinders get AP1 on a to-hit roll of 5 or 6. The Precision shot is only on the 6s.

So,
A to-hit roll of 5 becomes AP1 and wounds on a 4+ with rending on a to-wound roll of 6. Allocate as normal, but you choose when it is allocated because of the different AP value, this is also true when you Rend because it makes a round AP2, if it was not AP1 already.

A to-hit roll of a 6 becomes AP1 and wounds on a 4+ with rending on a to-wound roll of 6. Because of precision shot, you can allocate this hit to a model of you choosing which is in LoS in the same unit you fired at.
