Default Multi-tracker infantry armoury

Can anyone tell me what good a multi-tracker is to a Fire Warrior?

Maybe the shas'ui with a carbine and a markerlight can do both...although this is probably a typo. One of many from GW, I wonder if they even proof read the stuff

On a shas'ui team leader for a Firewarrior squad it means he can fire his weapon and a markerlight so if you wanted you can still get the markerlight hit without sacrificing any pulse fire. I may be wrong though. Otherwise its just there for battlesuits.

The fact that the multi-tracker only allows you to shoot 2 battle suit weapons was something GW overlooked. But the only time it would be of use on infintry is when they have a marklight and a pulse rifle/carbine. IIRC thats the only way to get more then one weapon on any of the Tau infintry.

Though wouldn't just a target lock be better, as you'll rarely fire that ML at the same target? I'd just give up the pulse shot.

You could get both. But I'd agree, a target lock is far more usefull.

Not necessarily you could be using that markerlight hit to guide in a seeker missil to insta kill the last remaining model from a squad that probably has multi wounds. You could be firing at a light vehicle and if you dont manage to destroy it that ML hit could bring in a seeker or some missil pod shots. You could be trying to overwhelm termies and using the ML hit to increase the BS of some Fireknife or Helios suits. Its useful but rarely used as most often pathfinders will be marking such targets and single lone MLs will be trying to mark more important targets.
