Default How do firewarriors use H/w Multi tracker?

I was looking through my Codex and they seem to be able to use the Hardwired
Multi tracker

If a Shas'ui takes a markerlight it would let you fire both weapons.
Is sorta pointless and expensive.

True, personally I prefer to take the H/W Target lock so that the Shas'ui can mark a vehicle for the broadsides/hammerhead to shoot and the rest of them can still fire at infantry targets.

I usually give one to my shas'ui with markerlight. If you play them fairly static it's worth it. I usually want to fire the markerlight, and an MT lets you fire the pulse rifle too, at half the cost of another fire warrior. If your firewarriors are moving a lot, though, the MT (and the markerlight) are wasted points.

If i read this right I think you misread the rules.For example you have a 6 man firewarrior unit with the Shas'ui armed with a marketlight but without a multi tracker.The unit in this case can fire all their wepons plus the Shas'ui can only fire his marketlight.If he has a multitracker he can also fire his pulse rifle.Right?

That is correct. It invariably ends up being more expensive than it is worth. The Target Lock can come in handy, though, since then you can Mark targets that the rest of the unit can't fight.

Yes, but look at what he was refering to... it was the target lock. This is IMO the best option in combination with the Markerlight. Because you can mark a tank and not waste those shots of the FW on the tank. The multi-tracker is kind of pointless, why would you mark a target that can me destroyed by a pulse rifle? Mark the things that are worth killing, don't mark a Sentinel (or something alike).

Default Re: How do firewarriors use H/w Multi tracker?

i just discovered this ability recently and have been using it more and more. i tend to go with the target lock. the reason for this is that i generally focus fire on a enemy target or two and it invariably allows a stealth unit or a crisis suit to really add some extra fire power on the target to finish them off. But i have spent much time debating between the two options.
