Default Heavy hand weapons

Do heavy hand weapons (choppas etc...) ignore 5 and 6+ saves and reduce all others to 4+? forgive me if this is a noobish question, it just seems unclear :-[.

thats correct.

It wouldnt make sense to be struck and all of a sudden have a better chance to save then otherwise.

so to reiterate

it ignores 5-6 saves and makes armor 2-3-4 = a 4+ armor save.

They still get their save, it does not, in any way, ignore those. It just says that those with higher than a 4+ goes to a 4+.

Doesnt really matter anyways, there are no heavy CC weapons anymore.

I agree with Icer - you´re wrong. Armour saves of 4 and up stay unchanged.

Even if this is a moot point (no more heavy CC weapons, as already stated), I have problems with falsehoods being posted with such a conviction...

Chaos and Orks no longer have their heavy close combat weapons, and so as others have said, it's nothing to worry about now.

Unless you play an opponent who prefers playing with old ork codex (one of my friends :P).
