I would assume it behaves like when you use it to boost a Unit's BS.

Only one unit can use that markerlight, so it'll only last for that one team's shooting.

That what I think as well, any second opinions from players who play Tau as their main armies?

We want to know if the effect remains. We know the market light "COUNTER" remains the whole turn or until used.

But when you USE a counter to reduce an enemy unit's cover save -1.
Is that unit at -1 cover save for the rest of the turn? Or only for 1 unit's shooting that turn. And then you have to use another counter for another unit to shoot them at -1 cover?

When used to negate a cover save it lasts the whole turn. It simply says that it decreases the cover save of a single unit. It doesn't specify that it only works for a single unit and as such it can only be assumed that it doesn't.

Hold on a second there. It states that there's a -1 to cover save the marked unit may have from the effects of the firing unit's shooting.

I think it only works for the unit that expended the marker. The last sentence before the list of effects is what swayed me.

It's EXTREMELY vague but I think we're going to have to rule in terms of rules as intended. It makes sense. The idea is that a unit expends a marker token in order to reduce the marked units cover save. I dont know if this is correct but it makes sense. So from now on I'll go with this translation.

Markerlight tokens only affect the unit that expended them, no matter what kind of effect you want. This means that you better be careful which unit uses them up when firing...
