Default Hey! The codex got the names mixed up!

I was thinking a while back that the Multi-Tracker and Target lock wargear should swap names around... I mean, if the Multi-Tracker tracked multiple targets, as the name states, then the user would be able to fire away from their unit, like a Target lock does. Equally, a target lock would lock onto a target, and allow the user to concentrate enough to fire both it's weapons... Any comments? :P Sorry if this seems like a useless thread, but I just wanted to discuss this ;D

Yup but also works the way it is,
Multi tracker aloows you to fire MULPTIple weapons
And the target lock lets you TARGET more than one unit

yeah but the way a target locker works is lets everyone lock on to some thing, what ever they think is best, with out this they basically have the squad commander say point guns in that general direction and pull the trigger. and a multi track is like a turret on the suit that lets one gun be controlled by the pilot and the other would work by itself.

In German, the names are actually the other way round "Multitracker" enabling a Crisis to shoot at a different target, "Target Lock" enabling the Crisis to shoot two weapons.

This made for some confusion when I first joined english boards...

Hey the same for the French codex. When I joined the forum and when I played with people with the english version I used to get sooo confused...I still am.

Well, two of the foreign codices seem to disagree with the English one... Any other countries willing to put up a fight?? :P
