Default Wargear/Upgrade "best buy"

Which piece of wargear or upgrade do you think is the "best buy" of 40k? not just cheap, or value compared to other units but the actual "best" upgrade for its points - the game changers which you never leave off an army list.

Powerfists on sergeants. The ability to nuke enemy characters, and damage vehicles with imputiny is awesome.

Lashwhip + bonesword and double boneswords are both amazing upgrades for the amount of points they cost. The fact that they are usually supplemented with a free set of scything talons to reroll to-hit rolls of 1 is just icing on the cake.

Wings on a DP. Pretty much mandatory for DPs (mainly for CSM)

The Book of Saint Lucius, better than fearless in most cases and it effects other units, (if you don't take it for them)

I'd guess Comm's for a guard army...
