Default tau heavy weapons?

alot of you complain about the fw's not having a heavy weapon. read the fw selection again and come back and tell me what that heavy weapon is.

heavy weapons cannot be fired if the model moved (except on vehicles)
ex; railgun
fw's dont have them because they don't need them. Their role is to splatter infantry across the board, and they do that VERY well with pulse rifles, thank you! ;D
You like heavy weapons, take crisis.

i agree completely... fw heavy weapons would ruin the cherished mobility of fish-mounted teams

Well yeah but a FW could hold a RR,but a RG would be to big

So when you said railgun I thought you had meant to say rail rifle

Such as....? They can already have markerlights, which are technically heavy weapons anyway.
And they are just added because of fluff, not as a tactical niche, so gue'vesa with lascannons would be a over the top.
Nope, I really don't think that's gonna happen either. What WOULD be nice is swapping the lasguns for shotguns.

What is this thread about? IIRC FWs have the option to take pulse rifles, and pulse carbines, nothing else. Did you mean to direct us to another thread talking about FW heavy weapons are someting?
