Default wargear question

hi guys ill try to make this as clear as possible, sorry if i confuse anyone

On the stealth suit sprue, you get a sensor spine-esque looking piece of wargear that is glued to a base on one of the pics on the box and positioned by the stealth suits.

what piece of battlesuit wargear does this represent?

(hope you guys understand what i mean ???)

Drone controller I believe, it's used for that or multi-tracker, but since Stealth suits only use 1 weapon, it can only be a drone controller.

they get a drone controller to place on their battlesuit though, little circular item, so not sure it can be.

multitracker, possibly...

The circular thing is a shield generator I believe... it's a disk right?
And they couldn't use a multitracker, they don't have 2 weapons, only a burst cannon or a fusion blaster.

no the shield gen looks like a shield. the circular thing im referring attaches to the back of the stealth suit. cylindrical rather than circular, with a tau node protruding from it.

trying to describe as best i can, im sorry.

and yeah multitracker cant be used by stealths your right so eliminates that possibility i guess. i dunno, maybe it is a drone conroller

I thought you were on about the stand-alone item at first? The thing with 2 protruding gold pieces and an antenna that is on its own 25mm base?

I'm pretty sure it's just a doodad. Like if you want to make some terrain or something.

I always though it was nothing specific, the drone controler is the thingy that can be added on the top of the xv-25

If you mean that oversized aerial-thing they give you, it's meant to be an objective marker. It's just an extra doodad they threw in to use the spare 25mm base that's left after making the 3 suits.

An objective marker? That no one uses? I don't even see why it should be kept. In fact, I'm tossin' it.
