It states its a G36 for range. Does the Exarch need LoS to shoot at a target or can it be used for indirect fire?
The Tempest Launcher is a barrage weapon (since it has a "G" before the range). P.32 BRB paragraph 2 left column explains the difference between older and newer codices. Paragraph 3 tells you what the basic rules for using these weapons are, but adds the four bullet points to those rules.
As for your question about the Exarch requiring LOS: the fourth bullet point on P.32 BRB answers this for you. Remember also that the Exarch can fire up to 3 shots if he takes "Fast Shot", so you will be then treating this weapon as a multiple barrage. The rules for this set-up are also found on P.32.
It's very very nasty!
Hope this was helpful.
