Questions on Plague Marine weapons

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.

Oh ok cool. I was under the assumption that WYSIWYG decides what weapons you have or dont have.
Ex: If I model them all holding bolters, they dont have bolt pistols or plague knives etc.

But if they have all three options at all times that clears it up for me. Thanks
Meh. All the dudes I game with don't really care if it our games are WYSIWYG. Just wondering for if I play a game at a GW store or something, but I don't see that happening to often to be honest.
Huh. Yea I had no clue about that. I now they wound on 4+ regardless of toughness cause of the plague knives, but I did not know they reroll failed wound attempt if T4 or lower. Good to know.
