Burst cannons where just free or nearly so.
6-7 points. Still make them a take when you need those last ten points or something. Free would make them perhaps to good but with maybe not with other points reduction but would make cheep suits viable.
Like it will happen
But is there any really negative reprocussions for either tau or their opponents with this? Stealth suits?
I say this coming from the perspective that most of us want points reduction not entirely but kinda across the board already anyways.
I'm guessing English isn't your first language? Not judging just took me a while to read that and I think I know what you're saying.
Burst cannons will not be free, at 10pts they are overcosted but you're saying would it really impact the game if they were free?
Hell yeah it would you'd probably see a few people even using 3BC crisis suits as (without a fireblade) you'd get the same number of shots as 6 firewarriors but 6 pts cheaper!
I know our codex needs some reshuffling but "free" weapons are generally either
A. Basic troops default weapons (lasgun, Pulse rifle etc...)
B. A powerful unique weapon that can only be taken by 1 unit and it's cost is reflected in the cost of the unit (manticore, vindicator demolisher cannon etc..)
Yes we do want points reductions on a majority of our units, some more than others, I personally think stealth suits are fine as they are but XV88's need some serious love.
But yes as we are burst cannons are overpriced and a pulse carbine effectively costs 0.5pts and a gun drone gets 2...
