Default Devilfish questions...

I have NO idea where to put this, it's not painting or anything else so I decided to post it here. If this gets moved, at least from then on I'll know where to go.

Anyway, the Burst Cannon on the Devilfish, it's included in the points right? I mean, you can have drones AND the burst cannon right?

And what does that sensor thing do? Is it just decoration?

Yes, the drones and the burst cannon are apart of the points for the DF. And the spins are the sensor spines that you don't need to add.

The chin sensors, where the burst cannon would go.

Nothing really, they just replace the Burst Cannon under the nose for the Hammerhead, since it's Burst Cannons are sponson mounted, you don't want just nothing there. I suppose it could represent the built in Targeting Array the Hammerhead comes equipped with.

I always thought it was the targetting array. Here's a related question. Has anyone upgraded their hammerheads or skyrays with gundrones? If you have, where did you put them on the model? I think it would be an alright idea, I mean it would be a couple of extra shots when you needed them and you could deploy them and use them as another mini squad just like the ones on the fish and parana. Just a thought.

I don't think it would be worth it to add gun drones, as they replace the standard weapons- and I'd much rather have an SMS than a pair of gun drones.

They don't replace the regular weapons. You have to have the weapons, its not an option not to take them, but you can upgrade to take the tank with grones. I'm pretty sure you don't need to ditch the extra weapons to take the drones.

Check your codex. it says "The secondary weapon system is either two burst cannons at (points), a pair of gun drones at (points), or a smart missile system...(41)"

Yoù`re both right, kinda.

It is true that the Gun Drones are treated as secondary weapons for the Hammerhead in the new Dex, but in the old one, it was perfectly possible to have a secondary system AND the Gun Drones.
