Questions on Plague Marine weapons

889 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Tugger
So I was looking through the CSM Codex, and while looking at the entry for PMs, and got curious about the weapons entry for them. It says they are armed with a Boltgun, Bolt Pistol, and Plague Knife. Now I am assuming that you either can have a Bolter OR a Bolt Pistol as a ranged weapon, but I am confused as to whether or not the always have a Plague Knife for melee. Basically I am asking if you either get a Bolter (and are assumed to have a Plague Knife), or if you have to take a Bolt Pistol to use a Plague Knife.

I'm not quite sure what it is that is confusing you but the answer is simple. They have all 3 things. At all times. They have a bolter for shooting, a plague knife for CC and a bolt pistol for shooting before charging and for a second CCW giving them +1 attack.
