Default lightning claw anomally?

If you take two lightning claws is it one handed or do both together count as two-handed, could I theoretically have a master with twin-lightning claws and a storm bolter.

I have seen the note in parentheses but does that refer to the extra attack or it counting as two one handed weapons?

i dont know about the codex, and its not in the FAQ, but in the IAL (often wrong but you never know) it simply doesnt let you take it

'Counts as two weapons' is pretty self-explanatory, bud. Each claw is a single-handed weapon, while a pair counts as two single-handed weapons. It's not necessary to note the extra attack in brackets because the 40k rulebook tells us that, unless otherwise specified, being armed with two single-handed weapons grants the wielder an additional attack. It also tells us that in the case of lightning claws, only a second lightning claw can grant an extra attack; any other weapon does not.

OK thanks Norman, I thought so but wasn't sure.

On top of that, in the Space Marine Armoury the option to take two Lightning Claws is under the Two Handed weapon section. Its crystal clear to me.

Er, it's actually under the single-handed weapon section. You're either thinking old 'dex or Chaos.

And it's very clear that they are two weapons.
