“Instead of having to roll 4+ should I roll 2+?” Correct. Pen applies vs all targets in the same way – it increases the number scored on the dice rolled to wound. In this case a ‘2’ on the dice will become a ‘4’ due to the weapon’s +2 pen.

Points to note
– no matter how high the pen value, a natural ‘1’ on the die is a fail.
– while the pen weapon stat applies vs all targets, pen modifiers (side armour, rear armour, top armour, and long range) only apply when heavy weapons hit armoured vehicles.
