Default Markerlights

Another silly question here.

What's the difference between hard-wired and networked markerlights? Basically, I want to take markerlights in my FW team, but what would that do compared to traditional ones?

Networked markerlights allow the squad that fired the networked markerlight to use it themselves. A normal markerlight means that the squad that fired it cannot use the markerlight themselves.

Okay so.... I'm reading over the codex over and over, and I'm still a bit confused...

What benefit would a markerlight, hw target lock, and hw multitracker have on my team?

On a FW team, a Markerlight would allow the unit to paint a target for another unit with one Markerlight token. A HW Target Lock would allow the Markerlight holder to aim it at a different target than the rest of his unit. A Multitracker would allow the model to fire both his Markerlight and his rifle/carbine at the target.

It would make them more expensive for no particular reason. It would also make them immobile if you wanted to use the marker light. Honestly, just dont put markerlights on your fire warrior shas'ui. It's worthless. If you need markerlights for your army just take pathfinders.

Another option is to put a markerlight on your Stealth suit shas'vre. He will be able to move and shoot it at the same round thanks to relentless.
