They don't have much in terms of Saves, none whatsoever, but they're have great S and good T... and, more importantly, they have 3 Wounds and a solid gun with great range, as well as a good melee attack set and above-average movement. More than all that, they're actually cheaper individually than Crisis Suits with no weapons!
So, is there a specific reason that these things aren't used much, despite being so cheap and being the only things in the army that are unambiguously good in close combat?

Yeah, 2 attacks with no AP isn't great, even with 2 damage and 6 Strength. They are hands-down the best non-HQ melee unit the Tau have, with the possible exception of a mass of Kroot Carnivores, but... yeah, they still aren't very good at melee.
Thanks for the replies. I feel a little silly now.

Like, drone/commander spam is an amazing list, but it's easily over $200 for the Commanders alone, and the least expensive Drone you can find is $3 by itself...
