Default Shouldn't Tau Crisis suits be able to rapid fire at max range?

shouldn't they be able to? I mean they have their jet packs which in the rule book says they are allowed to shoot once at up to maximum range

Please help me out on this one....

They can fire once up to max range, even if they move, because of the XV-8's Recoil Absorbtion. Normally, a model could only fire twice @ 12" if he moved. So moving and firing Rapid Fire weapons like Plasma Rifles doesn't affect Crisis Suits. Its pretty simple.

What are you even asking? If they should be able to fire twice at max?

[Also hi, welcome to the forum, but seriously please don't x2 post, especially if it's only Emoticons. It's just common courtesy.]

They do double tap at max range though...all 12" allowed under the rapid-fire rules ;D.

Why would you believe that they should be able to rapid fire at max range? From your first post you already know the BGB tells us that they can fire once at max range, so I (too) don't get the question.

they shouldnt be able to rapid fire at max range, as this makes no sense to rules.

Sorry, but you can't make variations to the rules just because crisis suits are awesome ;D

Also it would make sense as it would make suits with plasma rifes too powerful, and other races would want to claim similar benifits.
