Does a close combat weapon give you +1 attacks??
So if a squad has pistols that count as close combat weapons and they already have 2 attacks then they would get 3 attacks and 4 on the charge??? Is this right?
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
I was looking for an answer to a similar question, and we may even be asking the same thing. I know about the +1 Two Weapons extra attack as found on pg 40 of 40k rule book, but was wondering (as i believe the other fellow is as well) about the additional close combat attack described on pg 46 of the rules (on the page headed with Special Close Combat Attacks under the Close Combat Weapons section).
Does this mean that if I kit out my Space Marine Sergeant with a chainsword and a Boltgun (a bolter, NOT bolt pistol) would I get an additional close combat attack because of the close combat weapon?
Or does the +1 A really come if my Sergeant has a bolt pistol and chainsword (two cc weapons)?
Or would these bonuses stack? (I really doubt it, but wouldn't that be nice).
For normal models, the ONLY way to get that bonus attack is from having two close combat weapons, i.e. a close combat weapon and a pistol, or two close combat weapons. (Not including Wargear and upgrades, such as T. Honours and D. Mutation).
With the special rule True Grit, you'd get the bonus having a CCW + Bolter AS IF you were wielding a CCW + pistol.
You can't get more than +1 attack from having two CCW's though.
Just to add a bit more:
There are some models, such as the Chaos Marine, that come with a c.c. weapon and either a bolter or a bolt pistol. The basic c.c. weapon listed in the Chaos Marine profile does not confer an additional +1 attack. As Nemesis said, most models require an additional c.c. weapon of sorts in order to have the +1 to their attack characteristic.
G.W. isn't consistent between their codices when it comes to listing the basic c.c. weapon on troop models. Correct me if I'm wrong, but all infantry based models have a basic c.c. weapon, whether or not it's listed in their profile. This basic c.c. weapon represents the base attack characteristic of '1' for most models, and may be represented by a sword, knife, the blunt end of a rifle, a hand, etc.

Well, Tau don't have anything but the blunt end of a rifle, which is held in two hands, so giving them pistols wouldn't do anything.

Say that to O'Shovah. He practically invented the sword. I mean, three thousand years of astounding technological development and they can't figure out a bayonet?
