my roommate and i are fighting about which are better and why.
i vote for missile and he is saying lascannon
im going for the missile for its versatility and he is going for the lascannon soley for tank busting
so what would you guys use more and find more efficient

Missle launcher hands down. A missle launcher can kill anything in 40k. Maybe not in 1 hit but it can kill anything. A lascannon can also, but with a missle launcher if you need to you can lay down blast templates. Plus its cheaper. And i personally have no luck with lascannons (always miss).
Back from a long adventure.
same here, missiles are great weapons if you end up fight ting hordes and still need to tackle armor. I also never hit with my lascannons :cry: .
I prefer to use the lascannon because my army lacks the ability too really bust tanks and monsterous creatures and very heavy infantery. the missile launcher only has ap3 while the lascannon has ap2.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Well, apart from the points cost the only difference is when you are shooting at a vehicle (especially armour 13 or 14) or something with a 2+ save. I never (never) use the frag missiles and I can't remember the last time I saw someone using them, even against IG. In my army I use lascannon more though, mainly because they are the only long-range anti-tank I field so it has to be the most effective in that role.
Greetings from Planet X, I hope you enjoy your day.

Missile FTW. At least in a dev squad. I have a lascannon in one of my tac squads. But I certainly use the krak, and I used the frag missiles effectively in my last game against the 'nids.
I'll definately say Lascannon on this one, i don't like half-hearted all-round weapons like the Missile launcher. I'd rather have 1 Lascannon and 1 heavy bolter than 2 missile launchers, unless it's in a dev. squad. Maybe it's just because i'm an Eldar player, and like specialized weapons.
The problem with lascannons are their price, that's why i use the las/plas combo in my tactical squads for some anti-tank + some anti power armour power and 4 missile launchers in my dev. squad for some severe pounding on AV12 vehicles and stuff.
I like to overkill, killing bit for bit ain't my style.

Lascannon, they do the Job thier meant to do. Killing tanks and MC's. Krak ML are worse at both and Frag ML are no better than Boltguns. Which can do the same stuff. If you want to kill smallies, use a Heavy Bolter. If you want to use templates use Plasma Cannon it wounds stuff and ignores its armour.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
Missile launchers are only good in dev squads, or if you dont have $$ to buy lascannons
Best firebase for tact squads is las/plas as they do what they're supposed to do. Mediocre weapons gives mediocre results
well in my army fluff wise i wasnt going to use tact squads
i was going to use scouts as my troop base then go all out to fast attack and assualts with furious charge as my elites and LST's
so missile is my way to take down armor
