Markerlight hits are one-use only, but they last until the end of the shooting phase. So if your Shas'ui hit with his Markerlight, a Broadside could use that counter later in the phase. The remainder of the Shas'ui's unit gains no benefit from the markerlight.

Also remember that only Networked Markerlights can be used to benefit the unit shooting it.

No. It's all explained on Page 29 of the Codex.

A successful markerlight hit means you put a counter on the unit that was hit by it. You can "use up" these counters, for a certain effect, as listed on page 29 - such as launching a seeker missile, various benefits to the shooters, or things to detract from the target unit. Once the unit has resolved shooting, the effects no longer apply, and the markerlight counter(s) are removed (after to hit rolls are made, as specified).

Okay....I have a question about this as well.

Its with networked markerlights.

A Sniperdrone team shoots at a SMurf. The Markerlight rolls to hit first. He does, now the drones have to shoot. a) the 3 drones all benifit from the Networked Markerlight b) only one drone benifits from the markerlight.

Which one?

It is on page 29. It effects units, not models.

Answer to both questions: You need to buy the codex and read it instead of asking online for the answers.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

Ummmm Doctor Thunder i have the codex right here in my hand and these answers have been VERY imformative, especailly about the Markerlights and the Sniper Squad, i had a similar question i was going to aks but the answer about the snipers, sniper squad, and markerlights cleared it up for me, and like i said im sitting here at work with my codex.
