Default Just to clarify...

in the old codex twin linked missile pod took 2 hardspots. Now ANY twinlinked weapon takes to hardspots, correct? As in, a twin linked burst cannon would either take two places, or would you need two cannons on the model?

A twin linked weapon is represented by two weapons of the same type on the battlesuit. So a Deathrain is represented with two missil pods on the battlesuit. This helps show that it is twin linked and it does take two hard points.

You would need two cannons on the model to represent the TL weapon, and it still takes 2 HP's.

see page 25 in the new codex.

As a matter of interest, the same was true in the old codex, any twin linked weapons required two of that weapon on the model counting as 2 hard points.

I think you got confused with what was said about broadsides, though i must admit GW worded that poorly.

What confused me is in the old codex it just said "ocoupies two hardpoints" for missile pods, so i got confused. They really need to work on their wording..

Nah, not confusing. broadsides give up the jetpacks for 2 extra hardpoints and some heavier armor (since they're not flying anyways)

The wording in a lot of places often causes these questions to spring up.
