    Power Fist Attacks

    When a Tac squad assaults a unit and the sergeant has a power fist and bolt pistol, does he attack with all three attacks at str. 8 (power fist) or does only one attack strike with Strength 8? I'm not sure if the bonuses extend to other attacks someone might have.

    I'm AFB at the moment so I don't have the page number, but this is all spelled out in the special weapons section. A model equipped with a special weapon uses that weapon's rules for all of it's attacks. Also, a powerfist (as well as Thunder Hammers and Lightning Claws) only gains the bonus attack for having 2 weapons if the other weapon is a Powerfist. So you'll only have 3 attacks if you're charging, otherwise the Sgt will only get his base 2.

    Just to help out with the page no. It's P.42 BRB, right column under "A normal and a special weapon".
