Default Markerlight ?

I had a battle yesterday and I'm having some troubles with the marker lights.

Can you shoot a markerlight at a unit or just 1 model?

When you have shot your markerlight does the 2+ rule only apply to 1 model in you unit?

And can a model with a markerlight also shoot his weapon or only 1?

Thanx for all the help. I'm a little confused

Your confusion is understandable as the rules are a little confusticating on that matter. Markerlight hits are targeted at a unit like a normal shot; you cannot single out a squad leader and whack him with a seeker missile. The 2+ rule applies only to one model in a unit other than the one that shot the markerlight(so shoot all markerlights first) and a model can only shoot one weapon per turn unless they have a multi-tracker. Glad to help

Yes as long as his unit doesn't move that turn. Good for a whole Pulse Rifle unit.

the usual config is a an 'Ui w/ ML and HWTL, but thats a very expensive and very static (bad juju) FW, just get PF, that way you'll be ensured some ML hits in the least :P

ML in non Pf squads, usually run counter to the purpose fo the squad, get PF, basic bog standard ones come in at 180pts, not too expensive, especially if youre running 2 railheads, mmmm, ML sub, beats jarreds bad imitation anyday
