Default Stupid Question

Hey, this is going to sound like a stupid question, but I'm just getting back into the game...can someone explain how multiple attacks work with weapons...for example a character armed with one weapon, can he fire twice if he has two attacks? if it is a rapid fire weapon can he then fire 4 times at short range? what about character with multiple attacks and multiple weapons? how many times can each weapon be fired? I apologize for my ignorance, and thanks for any help you can offer.

The amount of times a weapon may fire is listed in the weapons profile...eg the burst cannon is an assault 3, which means it fires 3 times. It has nothing to do with the attacks in the characteristics profile.

Rapid fire means that you can shoot twice at targets that are up to 12" away. Except if you want to charge into combat, they can rapid fire and then charge in.

All the information you need is in the rule book and in the codex of you army.

Precisely. Do you have a rulebook? If so, read through it a few more times. If not... Buy one.
