Default Air Bursting Frag Launcher

Is da bomb!....

- It annoys the heck out of the enemy and is great for a lure
- Can actually kill stuff because even the best players forget to spread out somtimes, and cant avoid bunching up on transport exits, negotiating terrain, or deep strikes


love it....... esp with a TL Burst Cannon riding shotgun

Heh, it's cool, yeah, although I can name some better uses of the points.

It would be useful in an anti-horde crisis squad, though.

Yeah, it'll work wonders against gaunts and orcs, but I dont see it as versatile enough to use in a regular army list.

Tau in general rock in city fight I've found. We can put SMS on most of our vehicles now, seeker missiles, the ability to make use of cover for FoF, what isnt to love in city fight for tau?

Have to wonder how suit with tl flamers, AFP and multitracker would work... You donīt need to get that close but flamers cost very little, and if you are in flamer range of large mob, damn...

Im not a big fan of this gun. The CIB rocks on commanders but the AFP is far too inacurate for my liking. Every time Ive seen it used Ive not been impressed with its performance at all. Id rather keep my crisis suits firing precision shots over guessed lobs of grenades.

All it means is that it scatters, just like ordnance.
