Obviously repeater crossbows are, and most likely so are slings, blow pipes, sharp stuff, and repeater pistols used by engineers. What about the less obvious things such as repeater bolt throwers if they choose the "multiple" shot option instead of one heavy shot? What about leadbelchers and their cannons?
The only weapons with the actual Multiple Shots rule are the weapons that specifically state Multiple Shots x2/3/4 in their rulebook entry. Nothing else has this rule, Repeater bolt throwers, Helblasters, leadbelcher cannons, etc have their own rules, which are different to the Multiple Shots rule.

This seems to be coming up all the time now... :confused:
Unless a weapon specifically has the multiple shots rule (see the weapons section of the BR it does not incur the penalties associated with it.

Something like the Reaver bolt thrower has its own rules and call multiple shots "volley fire" instead. There is no additional minus as it is a warmachine and firing from a more stable platform than a hand held missile weapon. Lead belchers adopt the spray and pray approach by filling the cannons with all manner of assorted crap, hence they always hit on a 4+.
Unless a weapon states it has multiple shots (and will generally refer you to the relevant section of the rule book if it has it) then it is not effected by those rules.
