One system at a time. You can upgrade to fire more than one system thought.

Re-read the description at the beginning of the codex about Crisis suits.

You can only fire 1 weapon system at a turn unless you get a multitracker . With the multi tracker you can fire up to 2 weapon systems and still not 3.
And TL takes up 2 weapon sytemslots and you only have 3 and unless your drone controller isnt hardwired you cannothave that one togehter with the rest of the weapon systems.

And please read the codex first! (it is often quite good to do so )

So that you don't have too read too much (I hate doing that!) I'll sum it up quickly.

XV8 Crisis: Jetpack, 3 Weapon Systems or Support Systems

A Crisis Suit has three hard points which must have a weapon or support system attached to it...It is possible to mount the same weapon system but then they fire as if they were twin-linked...Twin-Linked weapons take up 2 Hardpoints

You may only shoot one weapon system per turn. You may also purchase a Multi-Tracker which allows you to fire 2 weapon systems per turn.

Exampe: Fireknife: Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi-Tracker
The Crisis Suit has all of its 3 hard points filled, and with the multi-tracker, it may shoot the Plasma Rifle and Missile Pod in the same turn.

Read the codex over a few times and you will understand...There...I think that it is now safe to lock this topic...

It's also worth noting that if you equip your Crisis suit with two of the same weapon (Plasma cannons, Fusion Blasters, Missile pods) then they must be used twin/linked. You can't shoot them separately. Then they both count as one weapon system and you roll once, re-rolling any misses.
