Default marker lights and cover saves

Can someone clarify for me the marker light cover save rule, does a marker light not allow a cover save
( I hit him with my marker light and he can't take a cover save against the light ( duck! ) ) or when a target is marked and hit with another weapon and wounded it is then not allowed a cover save ?

I am new to the Tau and would appreciate any input

you get a coversave against the Marker hit but not against the guided hit

maybe this should be in rules?

That's incorrect, Diz.

A Markerlight is not a damaging weapon, so there's not a save at all. There has to be a wound inflicted to save against before any saving throw is made therefore you cannot opt to take a cover save against it instead.

In the current FAQ, any shot that is directed my a successful Markerlight hit ignores cover saves, so the target unit will have to use armor saves and loses the option to choose otherwise.

The link to the revise 40kv4 FAQ is in my sig below...

Yah...If I remember correctly, all you have to do is hit with the marker light and thats-that! However, you do not get a cover save from the guided weapon!
