Agree if it means hand to hand and the closing has occurred – otherwise – I would assume a defending heavy weapon would still could have significant impact

POLL DESCRIPTION
In Osprey/Ambush Alley Games' Force on Force rules, support weapons normally provide bonus firepower, but not in close combat. As the rulebook states:
The very attribute that makes support weapons so successful in their designated roles generally reduces their effectiveness in a Close Assault.
The rules mention that support weapons are often designed to be used at longer ranges, are cumbersome, and are heavy.

Do you approve of this design approach?
