Default Another markerlight question

Say you fire a markerlight at a squad of 8 marines. You then open fire on that squad with some Fire Warriors. Does the whole squad get hit on 2+ or only one specific marine?

One fire warrior will benefit from the markerlight, so unless you roll a 1, one marine will get hit.

It would be pointless to use a markerlight on normal SM cos thats not as beneficial as say doin it on an some form of strong character...

Seekers only affect one model also as they are a 1 shot weapon so cannot target groups, just one model from a group...

Also a single seeker needs a single markerlight so to fire 2 seekers u need to use 2 markerlights...
