Please clarify.

If we are talking about using high strength shooting weapons as a means of inflicting instant death, then I'd say I don't rely on that method much because only a very bad player would allow a character to be shot at.

If we're talking about the use of high strength weapons for cracking armored targets then yes I generally have 1 or two in large tactical squads for that purpose.

If we mean "dependant upon" as in min/maxing to take loads and loads of missile launchers and lascannons, then the answer is no. Not only is this tactic beardy, it leaves big gaping holes in your army list that makes it easy for balanced armies to pummel you mercilessly.

Missile launchers are great, fairly cheap in tactical squads and reliable against hordes and moderately armored targets. But taking boatloads of them with the hopes that it's going to win you battles isn't sound thinking.

Posting duplicate threads (http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=16419.0) in two different areas is spamming. Locked.
