Default Im confused on the battlesuit armoury

Battlesuites can have up to three things from the battlesuit armoury but does that include hardwired supportsystems(wargear i think). For example a battlesuit could have three weapons plus a hardwired multi tracker? or is it only three altogether?

No, you're right. There are three hardpoints and those are technically suit additions. Hardwired stuff works more like wargear, you can take it regardless of hardpoints (or hands or joints in the case of Tyranids and the like). Whatever you get the point...

Any three battlesuit weapons, or support system upgrades, and however many hard-wired items.

Except you can not take any more than 100points worth of hardwired gear

Its Legal But the Multi-Tracker only lets you fire two weapons at once, not three
Hence a three weapons suit is considered inefficient by some

You must remember that only a shas'vre and up has access to hard-wired systems. Also if you spend points on upgraiding you Shas'ui, try giving him a bonding knife and some of the special weapon systems.

KBG got it right, not any suit can take hardwired stuff. Only Shas'vres and Sha'ui FWs can take HW stuff. Also, you can only take 1 HW support system (except the commander, which can take up to 3).

I can't find that anywhere.. I don't think that's true.

And Team Leaders can take Hard-Wired systems, as well.
