    You either fire the rider's weapon or the bolters, not both. Personally I would Kit them with melta guns.

    I, too was wondering about this. I have just built a squad of 3 bikes and an attack bike. I put the MM on the attack bike. I was thinking of giving two other bikers meltaguns as well. I did not see any written rule that explained if I could shoot the meltaguns at the same time as the TL bolters...

    Hi everyone. Pg 53 of the main rules book under Bikes- Shooting.
    Each rider can fire one weapon. So, on an Attack bike, you can shoot the heavy weapon AND the TL bolters.
    But, since bikes have 1 rider, you have to choose between which weapon you want to fire, bolters or the special weapon.

    4theEmperor: If youve given the attack bike a Multi-melta, then you're best off giving the squad meltaguns. Since im guess you will use the unit to hunt tanks, your better off not relying solely on a one shot multi-melta. That way you have a very effective anti-tank unit.

    With plasmaguns, keep in mind that if you decide to use the weapon, you cannot assault in the same turn. However firing your bikes rapid fire bolters or meltagun still allows you to assault. Hence another reason why meltaguns makes the best weapon to give a bike unit.

    You shouldnt really ever give plasma to bikes. I mean you run the chance or loosing a 35 point, in some cases even more expensive point model which can really hurt.

    The best way to equip a bike squad is probably to have 2 or 3 normal bikers, 2 Meltagun bikerss,Vet Serg with a powerfist and bolt pistol,and then an attached attack bike bearing a heavy bolter.
    That is an awesome squad!

    Cheers,
    Tycho

    Don't forget that if a plasma weapon over heats it ignores one of the main strengths of a biker Toghnress 5. Flamers and Melta guns are a lot safer.

    I just let them keep their bolt pistols and use them for bait, personally. They are hard to kill with that toughness of their's so they can soak up alot of fire before dying. And since they move fast and look flashy, many enemies will actually try and kill em instead of targetting that squad of marines moving down on them.
