We've known this already but it does raise an interesting question. Is it worth spending 1 CP for a Monat XV8?

Our only HQs with heavy weapons are Longstrike, Darkstrider, and the Fireblade I think. While the heavy weapon perk is interesting, I feel like it will be more valuable to gain the bonus on advancing assault weapons.

Fair enough. This is the one stratagem I can see myself using every turn. Basically, it adds +2 Markerlights... so, for a squad of 5 Pathfinders firing, once the first two have fired you should have one hit, use the stratagem and now you have three. The next 3 firing should bring you to 4-5 Markerlights, if you end up with 4 just use a backup Markerlight like a Fireblade or something. In addition, this stratagem makes it much easier to get 3 Markerlight hits on something if you need to launch Seeker or Destroyer Missiles.
