xeno fighters(devestaded an ork player and an eldar 1)
sharpshooters(have not used before)
sponson on russes(dont lose turrets often tho)
smoke launchers(have not used before)
whatever else you can think of(other)
what is the best way to use 55 pts in a guard army my current army has
-special wpns in every squad
-heavy wpns in all but 1 squad(ran out)
-dont say horifica my 2 infantry command squads are suicide deepstrike squads
-dont say anything leadership increasing i never run as it is
by the way i still have 2 open docterine pts in case
here are some guesses of mine but im not sure if it is worth it?
-maybe xeno fighters?
-maybe sharpshooters in anti tank squad
-sponson upgrades on russes?
-whatever else you can think of
Definitely Sponsons on the Russes, and sharpshooters on your Antitank squad sounds like a solid choice as well.
Have you got a Standard Bearer? They're a great buy.

EDIT: I have posted in the specific army list. I suggest all who reply to this to take a look at the actual list. 55 points out of the blue while not looking at what else there is specifically is not too wise IMO.
You can get 5 Ratlings for that too, and a doctrine slot taken up. A few stormtroopers, a Commissar with something. Just more food for thought.

Sponons on the Russ', you can never have enough weaponry on these beasts and a pair of Heavy Bolters will help you immensely, especially when fighting Orks and other numerous armies, in truth though I would rate the Heavy Bolter against most and that's what makes them such a solid choice.
sry but i already have 5 ratlings thanks for the help tho
I personally think take them all or not at all. Have you considered getting rid of another 55 points for something even greater? Or are you making use of all your avaliable models? If the latter, then more info is always helpful.
i guess i could convert 5 guardsmen to have snipers(i used guardsmen with snipers for ratlings because i hate the models) then maybe that would be a good use for 55 pts but maybe i should only take 3 more ratlings and use the extra on something else?
5 man vet unit with shotguns and 1 meltagun. This with drop-troops.
Sponsons on the russ's. Sometimes the battlecannon isn't the best weapon to use as the enemy may be spread out or they may be light troops in which case the 3 heavy bolters would kill more then the battlecannon even if you get a dead on hit! Also your leman russ still has a good amount of firepower if you do end up losing your battlecannon plus it looks cool.
