Default Mega Armor and Stikkbombz.......I don't get it.......

So, looking at the Meganobz's equipment so I was wondering what's the point of Stikkbombz on Meganobz that are equipped with Power Klaws that strikes last no matter what? Maybe I miss something here but I like to double check :P

You can always opt to switch off the power klaw .

Silly question, but if you're assaulting through cover, doesn't the defending PK go first before the rest of the assaulting army (I1 vs "going last").
And I didn't know you could switch off the klaw?! Can you choose to do this with all weapons?

Best,

you strike at the same time because cover recrudes your I to 1 just like a PK.
as for you other question I don't you actually can turn it off

I believe it was meant to be a joke. Of course, you could turn it off in the Fluff but game wise I think that it stays juiced up the entire time.

no, you can always choose to forgo the use of your special weapons and just do regular attacks. (At least, you could in 4TH, I don't know for sure about 5TH.) But why would you?

If you were fighting something that had twelve S8 power weapon at I2 but only T2 and one wound? Then you might want to go first and switch off your power klaw.

In 5th edition all attacks in close combat utilize the rules of the special weapon a model is equipped with. A model with a power weapon and chainsword can only use power weapon attacks, a model with a power fist and bolt pistol can only use power fist attacks, etc. So any time you have a special weapon equipped on the model, all attacks will be made using the rules of that special weapon. There is no 'switching off' now.

So, do you know why Meganobz are given Stikkbombz?
