Default XV8 Weapons

I generally use 1 plasma Rifle and 1 Missile pod on my suits. Lately ive been wondering if I should just twin link the plasma rifle and free up my markerlights to use for other units. Any thoughts?

Umm....stop markerlighting for the crisis?

Twinlinking the plasma is actually cheaper as I think about it. For a squad of three equiping a flamer on them for cheap skates like me it come to a total of 177pts. vs. 186pts for the Fireknives. With targetting Arrays for a better chance of hitting is 195pts. I would say that I'm switching but I need more ranged shots. It's murder to all power armoured foes though, good thing there's enough SMurfs to go around

That works if you don't mind losing the missile pod. I have 3 Fire Knives, 3 Helios, 3 Death Rain, and assorted others. I'll one day list everything that I have, but... TL the Plasma will allow you to free up that third slot on the suit. For myself... that is most likely going to be a Shield Generator. I know... expensive, but I think VERY worth it.
