Railgun submunitions, stealth teams, and massed Fire Warrior fire is the best way. Markerlight the submunitions to negate any cover saves they get. Versus Wraithlords, use Railguns, Missile Pods, and Ion Cannons, and also maybe Fusion Blasters.

I'm sorry but where does it say in the codex that markerlights negate cover saves becaus ei have found this in many posts and in the description it states that it makes the target easier to hit, nothing about cover. someone please clarify.

I believe the latest Tau FAQ mentions it: http://uk.games-workshop.com/tau/faq/

Hammerhead subs can kill most Eldar infantry etc, by denying armour saves etc. Massed pulse fire would generally take out the low saves (but invul.) such as Avatars etc. And for everything else, just match up weapon AP's to saves. The hardest thing to kill imo would be the Falcons - which you would need many many missile pods to take out. Speaking of which, missile pods are probably better against Eldar (take twin linked) rather than fireknives or TL-Plasma's.

We get this question allot. The general consensus is that massed pulse fire, sub-munition plates and death-rain suits are the way to go. Watch out for dark reapers though (kill them with a plate turn 1, they murder suits).

Submuntions are your friend. Take at least 2 Hammerheads. They waste Guardians.

I'll be concise: HH Sunmunitions are nice, and DEATHRAINS.

Deathrains REALLY come to their own when fighting Eldar. They are so perfect for killing Eldar...
