As far as I know, only vehicles get this obscured target type of save (for having 50% of hull behind something). For infantry, if view (from the firer) of their body,head,arms,legs are partially obstructed by something, they get a normal cover save.
That's basically it, infantry get 4+ cover save if they are partially obstructed.
Yes, but in the case of eldar rangers, they always get +1 so they always get 3+ cover save in this case and eldar pathfinder-rangers get 2+ cover save. That's just 1 type of cover save. So, yes, 4 or 5 markerlight hits would remove all their cover saves.

For a moment there I thought eldar rangers had yet another packet of cheese in their backpacks I didn't know about.
