Default Re: is sharp shooter a waste of points

I'm not an IG player, but I did play against an IG force with Sharpshooters in my last (Apoc) game and I will tell you that he re-rolled a lot of 1's. As these were mostly on his heavy weapons teams, it did help him a bit. So I would say that, yes, in circumstances where you'll be using a lot of heavy weapons, Sharpshooters could help you maximize points efficiency. Likewise, as 5th edition pushes game meta away from quality fire and more towards quantity fire, high ROF weapons end up being more potent against most infatry. That said, if you ROF increases, then your potential for 1's (and, in turn, re-rolls) will increase too.

Just an opinion from a Xenos Traitor.
