Fireknife is a Crisis Battlesuit configuration consisting of the Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle, and Multi-Tracker. It is a jack-of-all-trades configuration that has lost some of its luster, but is still very popular.

Death Rain is a Crisis Battlesuit configuration with Twin-Linked Missile Pods and either a Flamer (for cheapness and some close encounters) or Target Lock (for units of 2 or more). It is used to be an accurate heavy infantry and light vehicle (Rhinos, Chimeras, Land Speeders, ETC.) destroyer. Accuracy is more important than volume with both Death Rain and Burning Eye. Deathrain is one of the most popular configurations on this board.

Burning Eye = Twin-Linked Plasma Rifle, Flamer or Target Lock
Helios = Fusion Blaster, Plasma Rifle, Multi-Tracker
Sunforge = Twin-Linked Fusion Blaster, Shield Generator

If you need anything else just say so.

A fantastic sig by Kais.

Welcome to the forums!

Fireknife is a term used generally for a missle-pod and plasma rifle (and Multi-tracker of course) crisis suit configuration.

Deathrain is a missle-pod and burst cannon (i think, or is it flamer and burst cannon?) crisis combo

Dude, do a "search" on the forums and get more in-depth with the tactica that comes with these combos.

Man who stands on top of mountain for roast duck to fly in mouth... have long wait.

So get off yer butt and go for your dreams !!

Use the forum search feature and read the Important Topics sticky first. And then check to see if the question has already been asked and answered. In this case, asked and answered a few days ago.


There's still many more threads, but you get the point.
