Which set of weapons for Predator works best for its points???
Depends on what you need it for - the dakka pred for anti-infantry, or the AC/LC pred for anti-tank.
That's tough because what I consider worth it's points is if in game they make them back. You can take either the least or most expensive build but as long as you make up the points I'd find it worth it. I personally however generally take AC/LC because it covers both anti-tank and MEQ/MC. It's served me well but AC/HB is cheap and also quite effective. You'll find that most people consider all Las Preds to be a bit expensive.

Yea, 40 points for 1 less shot 2 strength higher doesn't really seem worth it...

I've actually found the TLLC to be worth the points. Its more reliable and consistent AT than the autocanon, especially when facing guard. The only problem is the points so I only use it when I can fit it in but it has never let me down. I find the Autocanon/Las sponson pred good for popping transports, but even then, against guard, that TLLC is much better against AV 12 in my experience and makes them even more nervous about exposing side armor of their Russes.
Though cheap i dont field HB/AC preds.I prefer to mount those HB on a dev squad(or even better take em with missiles).The anihhilator pred is a winner,though expensive its a mobile tank destoyer,nothing is safe from it.The only prob is that it is a big juicy target and it compeats with my other heavy support choices,which i find annoying.

Sometimes, when I want something cheap to fill in a few slots, I'll pick up a dakka pred or two. I generally use them in the hope that they'll draw fire away from the rest of my army because I've never had any real luck with the HB/AC doing much. If I were serious about doing damage, maybe then I'd splurge and get the LC/AC mix. But then it's becoming a lot of points for something that whiffs a lot.
That said I'm a big fan of "cheap and cheerful" factory defaults or AC/HB ones. You can get a whole load of them for very few points and really give the enemy tank busters run for their money when you park them all over objectives.

After much though and battlefield proxiying i came to the conclusion that the autolass pred is the best...Hence my vote.
