Correct me if i'm wrong, in the BGB it states that if a model with rapid fire weapons is moving, it can shoot 2 shots at 12 inches. I'm still confused on old editions and wondering if this is new, i havent played much in 5th edition now, and i swore my gaming communities doesn't do this, but please LO do correct me if i'm wrong.

That is the same as in 4th edition. 2 shots to 12 inches, or one shot to max range (if the unit was stationary) and any shooting prevents the squad from assaulting.

Greetings from Planet X, I hope you enjoy your day.

It is a change in 5th, in that you can move and still double-tap. The other change is that if your unit fires a rapid fire weapon, you can't assault with it. Further, there's no option to NOT rapid fire within 12".
Ahem, you can't assault if you shoot a rapid fire weapon period. It has nothing to do with how many shots you take. And to answer the original question, you can always fire two shots. None of this is new, it's been this way since 4th.

I am afraid that they are right SMann233. Under the heading of Rapid Fire Weapons in the BrB: "Models that wish to assault into close combat in the Assault Phase may not shoot with Rapid Fire Weapons in the Shooting Phase."
The wording is the same as it was in 4th Ed, with no changes to the rule. You are spot on the dot, Sorrowsky, and tell your gaming communities otherwise.
Hope this helps!
