Default fifth edition question of Korne Berserkers

ok, i was looking at the rules for weapons in fifth, and i'm wondering on somethings.

1)a korne berserker is effectively a space marine with a mark of korne, giving him +1 attack. i.e a korne berserker has 2 attacks, but all korne berserkers are armed with close combat weapon and a pistol. the weapon rules state that a pistol counts as a close combat weapon in CC.

the fifth edition rules claim that a model with 2 close combat weapons gains +1 attack, so does a korne berserker actually have 3 attacks because he weilds 2 close combat weapons?

2)in the fifth edition rules, you can have 2 power weapons i.e. two powerfists. could a chaos champion or something have two powerfists even though its not technically an option in its wargear. for example it is stated a champion can have 2 lightning claws, and it can change its power weapon for a power fist, could he change his pistol/bolter for another powerfist even though thats not stated?

1) While I wouldn't say Berserkers are just CSM's with the mark of khorne (they also have fearless, furious charge, +1 WS...) you have it right. They have three base attacks, and then the extra +1 for charging if you do so. That means that a tiny unit of 5 gets 20 attacks on the charge. Very impressive.

2) I would have to say no to that one, CSM's don't have an armory like other races; they just have upgrade options. We're kinda stuck since we do not have the ability to take extra powerfists. In friendly games I'm sure people wouldn't mind, but in tournaments I doubt it would work.
