Default weapon question

the codex says that if you take 2x the same weapon simbiote it counts as twin-linked, but if you take 2x a twin-linked weapon?(i.e 2x twin-linked devourer)

The FAQ says that you then have 2 twin-linked weapons.

So a twin-devourer tyrant would have 12 twin-linked shots.

Two twin devourers are much better on a Tyarnt because:
a) the Tyrant ones have a total of 4 attacks more
b) the Tyrant has 1 better BS than the Fex

But I feel a Hive Tyrant has better uses, like being given wings and 2x scything talons and to tear apart the enemy. Or being given a venom cannon to down enemy transports so other units and take out the units riding in them.

What does de +1BS matter with so many shots and TL... :P

Tyrants should be in CC, monstrous creatures with S5 or higher should be smashing things apart
