Default ork boys number of attacks

I was wondering how many attacks an ork unupgraded slugga boy gets on the charge is 3 or 4 because a guy at the local store said it was 3 because the 2 attacks in the statline included the 2 close combat weapons if someone could help me with this because 30 boys getting 90 attacks and getting 120 attacks makes a big difference
thanks in advance

The stats in statline DON'T include the two close combat weapons :P so four on charge.

The attack stat is the base attacks, always the case to my knowledge. So, a Slugga Boy would get 3 attacks (extra CC weapon), or 4 on the charge. If that weren't the case and it was the way the guy at your store said, then why on earth would you take a Slugga Boy over a Shoota Boy? There would be no point to having the different weapon options if that were the case.

Page 12 of the rule book, it says that A is the number of attacks the model has and may be increased by charging or fighting using two weapons.

Eyes... burning...

Sorry, but it took me a while to understand your post... "I believe there are 2 attacks per boy and on a charge you GET FOUR". Ive read "gate for", which doesn`t make much sense (even if you think about it), and things like this can really screw up your mind when you`ve just woken up

As Thor already said, 2 attacks base, 1 for aditional CC weapon, 1 for the charge. Sluggas would be pointless if they wouldn`t have more attacks than Shootas.

Cheers,
