Welcome to Librarium Online!
So i was reading the Tyranid Dex as like may veteran's I see all the fun and nasty things that book does. So i'm wonder why is it that most Tyranid player put a Barbstrangler and a Venon cannon on a Carnifex to make it a sniper fex? I'd prefer them to have 2 Venom cannon's for 4 str 10 shots for taking out vehicles. Is that not allowed?
I've also debated have a Carnifex have 2 Barbed stranglers and a Walking Tyrant with 2 Venom Cannons and a Tyrant guard. Are those set ups not used or are they just not cost effective?

The problem with those ideas is that in the tyranid codex it sais if two of the same bio-weapon are chosen then they become twinlinked. With that rule in place a carnifex with two venom cannons only has two shots, and even though they are twinlinked they still dont add up to a venom cannon and a barbed strangler. The same goes for most other weapons. There is one exeption to this rule, the twin linked devourer. If a carnifex has two sets of twinlinked devourers it gets eight shots that rerole to hit and rerole to wound. (OUCH!)
