Default Weird thing........

I notice that in the codex,

1) it clearly stated that the Ethereal have a Bs, but what do they shoot? Throw their honour blades?

2)The multitracker on a Fire warrior, is it used in the same way as a Crisis suit one? Can they shoot the markerlight and pulse rifle all at once?

Please enlighten me, and if you notice any weird stuff about the codex, just post it here.

The first is just a stupid thing that they put there by mistake.

For the second ... I think a FW can fire both Rifle and Marker.

* Also a shield drone has a BS and it doesn't have anything to shoot, not even to trow...
* The problem with the BS is the same with Aun'va and guards. ;D

Yea as said my take is that the BS thing is just there to be there and has no real use.

As for the multi tracker, it lets the Firewarrior fire both his weapon and the markerlight. Two weapons is two weapons and the markerlight is a heavy weapon...

Why wouldnt an ethereal have a ballistic skill ?

I see this coming back a lot troughout a lot of armies.

But us humans got all sorts of tricks we dont use and still can do it

A soldier has got a ballistic skill
A doctor would have one 2.

Doctor only shoots injections

I think ballistic skills is a bit of agility as well

It's there for comparitive purposes to show the standard stateline for a race. Basic BS for Tau is BS3.

While you might think that's the same level of a well-drilled Fire Warrior or Imperial Guardsman, it's just that having it any lower makes them stand out too much...and since it's never used, this isn't really an issue.

Not having a weapon does not mean you cannot have skill at long range.

Giving a firewarrior a multi-tracker allows it to fire both the markerlight, and the pulse rifle/carbine. Naturally, this upgrade is useless without the markerlight.

It's a shame that a Shas'ui can't have two pulse rifles. I can picture it, him standing there firing his pulse rifles , screaming; "Come on then ! Come on you *beep*!" while gauntsare rushing at him.

EMP grenades are only useable against vehicles in close combat. It is a set roll based on how fast the vehicle moved. You can not throw them.
