Just for the clarification:)

Thanks


From the rules:
“...INFANTRY units that have suffered any hits from photon grenades until the end of the turn.”

It def does not stack at all. As evidenced by “suffered ANY hits”.

What Maxwell said. I knew I forgot something. Overwatching with multiple grenades simply increases the chance to get a hit with it.
Sorry, my bad. ^^

The chances of getting a successful D6 grenade hit in overwatch is 44.5%, so it isn't that lucky to score it...

I once rolled 27 dice on a stormsurge overwatch and got one six. That has no relation to this thread but....I’m still mad.

That wouldn't be such a rare event... (1/6)*((5/6)^26)*27 ... 3.9% chance.
