Markerlights are essentially laser pointers (make sure you instill a false sense of security into your opponent by repeating this to him)

in all seriousness though they are the love of your life and the bane of your enemy. These items reduce cover saves increase ballistic skill and sometimes enable you to ignore night fighting. i wont give away to many details but heres the general idea.

There are two kinds of markerlights which function in slightly different ways standard and networked. they both confer the same potential bonuses the better 3 of which you can see above. they should always be given to pathfinders over rail rifles in my opinion and if the points are spare then a markerlight for the shas'ui firewarriors or Shasvre/team leader stealth suits is always a viable option. you may also come across them in the form of marker drones however they are both overpriced and hard to come by (13.50 per pack of stealth suits and only 1 drone a peice)

Also remember many squads can't benefit from their own markerlight.
