Default How do you prefer to equip your Crisis Suits?

So, I was just curious, How do everyone prefer to equip their crisis suits? I'm trying to find new multi purpose equipment sets for my suits as currently I equip all suits the same, 2 missile pods per suit and thats it. So tell me how you all equip your crisis suits?^^

It really depends on what my use for them is. If I want alot of shots, 2 burst cannons, and then give the commander the twin linking signature system. I use this in almost every list I make, because having 16 str. 5 shots that are twin linked is quite devastating.

The range of crisis suit weapons makes them probably the most flexible unit in the entire codex. Well that's my opinion anyway. As such I don't really have a favorite loadout, but rather several different ones that fit the role the unit is intended to fill.

I would say considering that the suits are really good at taking on heavy infantry / MC / light vehicles, possibly the best loadout to use is the dual plasma rifles / burning eyes. Gives up the extra range and shots of the missile pods for the ability to ignore armor saves / a better vehicle damage roll. I'd go with dual fusion blasters, but if you need the extra damage with plasma rifles you can cut your range in half for 4 shots per suit. Giving a crisis team some markerlight love at the same time means something's definitely going to die.

I like sunforge for pretty much unparalleled tank killing ability and burning eyes for their ability to almost guarantee somethings death

well i like deathrain, double missiles, because it pens aspect armor, although i dont like doing the thing where you take a unit of deathrains and add them with a commander, i dont really have a reason besides its not my forte
