Tank, you can either use the str 10 shot or the pie plate, not both.

I think his question is, Can I fire solid shot on turn one and submunition on turn 2?

Yes, yes you can. Every turn you can fire a different type of round.

The Railgun on the Hammerhead can fire either type of round - not both at once, but you can use the solid shot one turn and the submunitions on another - a common question people have with Missile Launchers, EMLs and Railguns.

The Broadside railgun, as stated in the Codex, can only fire the solid shot.

I don't. If I wanted to win every game I would have played necrons.

Welcome to the forums!

Thankfully, the Hammerhead Railgun is an extremely flexible weapon.
