Fusion Blasters and Missile Pods seem less effective, on XV8s at least. Flamers are controversial, as are Plasma Rifles, and everyone knows the AFP is pretty terrible!
Anyway, who has tried out XV8s in battle in 8th Edition? Does the theory hold up? Do some XV8 builds perform surprisingly well on the tabletop? Or, are there drawbacks to mathematically-viable loadouts that simple math might not reveal?
