Great yes, but BS 3 normally compared to BS 4 for a Necron Warrior's Gauss Flayer which has 1 less S and 6" less range but bypasses to wound on a 6 and can glance even a mighty Land Raider on a 6. Easily matching the prowess of a Tau Pulse Rifle.It is definantly the Tau pulse rifle:
str 5, AP 5, range 30, rapid
no other baisic weapon even matches it
Good point. Although Necron Warriors have +1 T, +1 Armour Save, WBB, and better Ld meaning as the turns go on, more Necron Warriors remain to fire.The Gauss Flayer is indeed good but they are found on more expensive troops than the PR which limits it a bit further.
Na it's basic weapons. Those are about as far from basic as it gets. :grin:Yall are forgetting the almighty Assualt Cannon... 4 shots 24" Range S6 Ap4 Rending. That can drop anything as well.. LR, Greater Daemons, Avatars, Wraithlords.. Even comes TL on the LR Crusader..
Close Combat I would have to say the new Manreaper that Typhus gets or the CCW that Eldar Farseers get which triples strength (if they still have it.. I know 3rd Ed).. dont know the name..
