Default Markerlights

Hello!

My name is Johnathon and I just recently started playing warhammer 40k. I've played 4 games so far and I've built about a 1000 point Tau army. I'm currently working on a 500 and 1000 point list and I cannot seem to find any rules governing the use of my seeker missiles and markerlights in my codex. Any help would be great!

how do I determine the seeker missile hit? I heard it shoots as a bs5 but im unable to find that in codex and also I heard you are required to use a markerlight in order to fire it, also with using marker lights do I go off the untis BS that is using the markerlight? then if it "hits" I get one marker light wherever I want?

oh, ok. its partly explained on page 104, and i cant remember what page it is, but basically how it works is that you spend the markerlight token(s) and fire a seeker as bs5 without LOS towards the unit with the token. the seeker just fires the seeker, no markerlight. but i do think that you can spend another token to remove a cover save when it fires? not sure. bunch of other rules that affect it, but thats the gist of it. also the profile of the missile is on page 107. but yeah, i looked over the codex and i didnt notice anything about how it is fired, but i probably missed it.
