Default Mechs

Okay, so I've been playing Tau for a good while, but I am confused about one aspect of our XV8s because I can't find any info on how many weapons they can shoot per turn. Seeing the multitracker put me onto this track because I have always played they can shoot all their weapons? is there a rule on this, and where is it?

Normal infantry can only shoot one weapon per turn. Monstrous Creatures are the only exception to this rule (they can shoot two).

However, giving your Battlesuit a Multi-Tracker will allow him to shoot two weapons per turn.

ahh..okay. GW didn't go into any specifics and due to the nature of the Battlesuits, I assumed they could fire all weapons (most of mine are TLed anyways)). Thxs.

oh and remember you can only have 3 hardpoints on your battlesuit. The rest of the upgrades have to be hard wired.

You can still hardwire the multi-tracker which allows you to fire 2 weapons. Without the multi-tracker you may only shoot one weapon. So unless you only have a TL weapon your going to need a Multi-tracker.

Just letting you know if you didn't already because when I first looked at the codex I didn't have a clue as to what they were talking about
