Kroot Rifles count as close combat weapons, the knife is just for show.

The knife is for show. The Kroot Rifles have blades on either end, which combined with the Kroot's superior (to the Tau at least) musculature effectively gives them two weapons in combat. Check your codex on pg. 19. Just above the chart it addresses your question. And before anyone asks, No. The bonus is not included in the basic statline, so you do need to add it.

Hope this helps you.

Its also on page 32, on the right of the page.. Its interesting to note that, if you charge a full squad of 20 kroot, thats a LOT of attacks coming from them :P

please, watch your spelling. l33t is frowned on on these forums. Its awkward to read, and people for whom english is not their first language will have trouble understanding it.

to answer your question, rules wise, kroot run around with a kroot rifle, which in close combat gives them 2 attacks (3 when they charge). the knives, capes, smoke bombs etc that are on the sprue are there just to look cool. they have no special rules.

On the Kroot Merc army list, you can actually nominate the shaper to carry a bolter and a power weapon.

Does that count as an extra cc weapon ?

No. Only models with true-grit can count a bolter as a 2nd CC weapon.

I'll trust the Shas'O on this, but can anyone tell me what the "True Grit" rule is? I assume it's a Space Marine special rule but I've never come across it in my run ins with SM players, but I've heard it on these boards before.

20 Kroot, 8 Hounds, and 2 Kroot Ox gives you 92 attacks when charging - Infiltrating into cover and then letting yourslef be assaulted still gives you 62!
