They will. It's already confirmed that blasts and scatter dice are gone.
I still need to get used to AP0 Bolter. Suddenly our Pathfinder aren't just cannonfodder! They get a 5+ save against damn Bolter and even better if they are in cover! So happy!
Flamer is interesting. d6 hits is ~3,5 on average so at max range it's more than you could have with a template but if you are close enough to kick them it's less. Then again it's more against single targets so that's pretty nice as well.
Gonna playtest my double flamer Monat a lot in 8th to decide whether I still like him or not.
I hope Our Pulse weaponry gets at least AP-1 but I kinda doubt it. S5 is still really good and i'm sure we will still be able to ignore or reduce cover with Markerlights.

D weapons gone sounds awesome but to be real they just got streamlined into the new system since without super heavies, no cap at 10 for stats and heavy weapons doing multiple damage they aren't that much different anymore.
Can't wait to see how Rail weapons will be in 8th. It's a shame that my favorite weapon is so weak in 7th!
