Yes, I think that having FRFSRF granting some combination of Twin-Linked and/or Shred can be just as effective as granting an additional shot.

That said would I change the rule, I don't know, but the evidence does tell that it is very close to the same output and can be argued that it is better.

Like I have said numerous times, this isn't about "let's change FRFSRF" it was about "I wonder what are the results between FRFSRF, Twin-Linked, Shred, and lastly the Twin-Linked & Shred combo". What everyone wishes to do with such information is up to them.

that would be a nice fix.

Your math says FRFSRF is better at range or just as good as the other options close up, you say this isn't about changing the order but you would change it, and finally it's all about just having less dice (ref. your quote from nef)? This is one absolutely confusing thread, pal.

If weight of fire isn't your thing then maybe you just aren't cut out for the Guard?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
