Default tl weapons and multitrackers

I have a quick question, if a XV8 has a twin linked weapon, a single weapon, and a H-W multi-tracker, can he shoot both weapons in a turn?

Yes becasue the TL weapon acts as 1. So for the purpose of your exemple he has 2 weapons:

1) TL weapon
2) 'regular weapon'

So with the HWmultitracker he can shoot both, and can reroll the TL one if he misses.

The only downside...relatively speaking is that it can only be used with Shas'vre or teamleader since regular Shas'ui cannot take hard-wired wargear.

Could be very good for monats too.

I took a fire-knife team with the leader fitted out with a Plasma rifle and Twin-linked Missile pod. It works amazingly well!

Its illegal for two reasons;

1. A battlesuit may not have duplicate weapons systems. Twin-linked systems are allowed because they count as a single system, rather than two separate ones. Two sets of twin-linked plasma rifles are duplicate weapons systems. Illegal.
2. Weapons systems take up hardpoints. Twin-linked plasma rifles take up two hardpoints, so having two sets of twin-linked plasma rifles would take up four hardpoints. A battlesuit has three. Illegal.

So, said "guy" is either gravely mistaken, or cheating.
