Maybe he's just very excitable? ???

I'd take a burst cannon over a Pulse Rifle. Same thing, more shots. And (usually) J-S-J as well.

yeah, but for the burst cannon, you need the JSJ because the range is less.

true the burst cannon is great but poor range and if you mark light the target then the FW will cut them down much easyer

Lol Burst Cannons...even my enemies laugh when I fire them from my Stealths or Devilfish. They never hit, maybe once or twice at best, and can only dish out the damage of an infantryman. I guess it's better than nothing but I'd rather ANY other weapon hullmounted to my tanks than that. Maybe I'll ask my friend's Warboss if he can toss me a Big Shoota or two, they're the same stats just DOUBLE the range.

Pulse rifles ARE amazing. Although Fire Warriors can't hit the broad side of a barn, they can sure KILL the broad side of a barn! And Burst Cannons are good too. As far as putting Burst Cannons on a mobile unit, the only better I could think of would be Missile Pods, as the Burst Cannon does have better range than most weapons on the move.

Pulse Rifles are GREAT against Orks, they get no armor save and are wounded on a 3+.

Try against Guard or Nids, no save and wounded on 2's. That's just evil.

=p Don't go hatin' on the BCs now. My BC equipped stealth teams do their job fantastically. At str5 they are only average compared to everything else that the Tau (specifically) get. Heck, Eldar get a Heavy choice (Dark Reapers) that only have str5 weapons (except I think for the exarch). But still, heck str 5 is enough to do a ton of damage, especially if you work it right. I take stealth teams with targeting arrays, and they generally work great for early troop slaughter or flank harrasment.

hen, pulse rifles are awesome. Burst Cannons too, I actually hit most of the time, but I'm naturally favored by the Lady (first person to say the L word having to do with favorable outcomes cropping up is dead, that's a jinx if there ever was one even uttering that word). It's fun mowing down Tyranids with them. Wait till you play a army of all heavy 'nids (warriors, genestealers, etc. etc. things that aren't affected by lack of a synapse node), it's always funny to see your opponent's face when his Hive Tyrant gets taken down on the 3rd turn from just pulse rifle fire.

You do what?! That's 40pts a stealth! Dear god, you must burst into tears when they die.

And, I faced off against Orks today (Tau Victory >) and the Burst Cannons....eh, they did their share. Nothing to write home about. Missile Pods and SMS are GW's gift to the Tau, that, and Markerlights <3 (even though I only had a bare bones unit of 4 pathfinders+a devilfish).

I just hate how the 'fearsome' burstcannon is the Devilfish's primary weapon until you upgrade to SMS. You're only going to kill 0-2 targets per firing, and that's if you're lucky. MASSED Burst cannon fire is a beautiful thing however, and I've got nothing against stealth teams....they're essentially overpointed and worse versions of Warp Spiders.
