Default New to Orks question

I just bought the codex the other day and i was confused about one thing. The basica boyyz have the option to either have a slugga/choppa combo or a shoota for no cost. If I were to upgrade all my boyz to shootas will i lose an attack in CC or what?

You recieve 1 extra attack in CC for being equipped with 2 CC weapons or a CC weapon and a pistol. By taking only a Shoota, you no longer have a CC weapon and a pistol, and therefore do not receive the bonus attack

I think he's getting confused with the basic 2 attacks in the standard profile. The 2 attacks are never changed downwards - if they are given slugga + choppa then they gain an attack (to 3) but if they have a bog standard shoota than they remain at 2.

As a rule I always take the slugga choppa combo. It's fun to shoot up the enemy before you get to em, but its even more fun to slam into em with a billion CC attacks

think the most I've gotten in one phase is 80, i charged a unit of 4 chaos termies so i struck last, but i still got 80 attacks to take out 4 guys, it was hillarious

=)

Shootas are best on footsloggers so they can pour in fire as they move. Sluggas are best on transported boyz since ideally they will never be outside of assault range but in shooting range.
