Default outflanking with snipers.

since ratling snipers are considered heavy weapons , are they able to shoot the turn they come in from an outflank. the same question goes for a vindicare assassin .

No.

Outflank= movement = impossible to fire a heavy weapon.

In short since outflanking is a movement you cannot fire a heavy weapon...unless theres a special FAQ/Errata that claim otherwise (and I doubt it exist)

They will most likely allow a vindicare assassin to do so whenever they get around to updating the books, because he is supposed to, according to the fluff, have been waiting there for days, and the outflank move or infiltrate setup is just the rules of how he finally reveals where he is, but untill then, Boneguard is correct.
