Default Question on Walkers?

Walkers of any kind with DCCW, do they attack at their initiative with their DCCW or at Initiative 1 like a Powerfist?

they arent hindered by their own weapons, walkers are so big and massive they possess more then enough strength to strike without penalty to intiative in the case of a Dready equivalent weapon.

Dreadnought CCW is not a Power Fist, so it has it's own weapon profile. (p73)
It sounds like he's trying to apply the PF/Thunderhammer rules on p42 to DCCW, and it is neither.

It makes little sense for a dreadnought close combat weapon to strike ant initiative 1. It does not do that however. That is kind of dumb. The reason powerfist strike at initve 1 is they are unwieldy for a space marine or guardsmen to use even. GW rules are only sometimes illogical.
