What is better, 2 plasma rifles or a plasma cannon for a fire suport squad?

to plasma guns (rifles as you called them) are mobile weapons, they shoot with fairly alot of shots when in range, and really pack a punch.
The Plasmacannon is a aim & shoot weapon, you stand still, you select a unit, and you fry it.
-can be used against vehicles with succes as well
-not very long range
-has a larger chance of getting hot when rapid firing
-blast template (more kills per shot)
-you have to stand still to shoot
-only 1 shot, how close the enemy is or not.
Personly I move alot, and prefer the plasmaguns.
use what suits your playing style best,
Why not one of each? I am about to try this for a fire support squad. I want the range and blast of the cannon, but if they get too close rapid fire can do wonders too. Should be great for deep striking terminators...
Saves using traits if you don't want to as well.
