Default Combi-Plasma Gun, Hmm..

Ok I have no rulebook(s) with me, just looking for some quick clarification.
Plasma guns can fire twice, - rapid fire, if i remember right? But if they do this then they overheat on a 1 OR 2? (Not sure if this applies in new edition..) Anyhow -

Combi weps can only be fired once per battle. So would a CPG get one shot? Or 2 shots rapid fire? :-\

Cheers

Firstly, Gets Hot! no longer works that way.

Secondly, the "one shot" thing means you can only fire it in one shooting phase per game. You can still Rapid Fire with it.

cant give you the exacts, but you are correct APART from the above :shifty:

you have half the chance of overheating that you used to when rapid firing :shifty:

Lol so i would be right in presuming even when fireing 2 shots, the chances of it overheating would still be ... Ooo... say somewhere around ... 1.6666 average overheats out of 10 shots fired? :P ^-^
Thanks
