Default Kroot Rifle

I was always under the impression that Kroot gain +1 attack (giving them 2) for having the Kroot Rifle, because it is counted as having an additional close combat weapon. However I just read the Kroot mercenaries codex online, and it says that the Splinter Rifle gives the Kroot + 1 attack (giving them 2). I am extremely confused. Does the Kroot Rifle give the Kroot +1 attack?

They both give them an extra attack.

the kroot rifle has been upgraded by the tau, to fire a low strength plasma slug and use as a close combat weapon. So basically it counts as two close combat weapons so you get 1 extra attack

Basiclly no real diffrnce, it's the same thing as a Lasgun and an auto-gun. The only diffrence is for fluff. Unless I'm missing something, I don't quite remember the the splinter rifles stats... but alas...

Plus the splinter rifle is, after all, an Eldar (or is it Dark Eldar?) weapon. Kroot mercenary have access to guns that 'Loyalist' kroot dont since it's a gift from their employer.

As fat-tree said, the kroot use a somewhat low tech slug thrower gun to which they attach the blades thus allowing them to use the gun as a melee weapon (a bit like a rifle w/ bayonet) thus granting them a +1 attack.

There is a slight difference between the two. The kroot rifle has better strength & less AP than the splinter rifle.
