Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wondering how you guys equip to make it very unfriendly to the enemy and to look good at the same time. So i guess what i am asking is which 3 items are best for a battle suit.
Thanks in Advance
That is a really hard question to answer. What many folks do is arm a unit with similar/the same weapon load-outs and give the unit a specific task to fulfil: tank killers, long range fire support, jack-of-all-trades, etc.
The commonest combo is probably Fireknife: PR/MP/MT. Deathrains are in the ascendency too: TLMP/TA. It really tends very much to depend on what you want out of your unit as to what you arm the models with. However, if you take two different weapons, then you will be taking a multitracker in order to be able to fire both weapons.
Many players will also upgrade one of the Crisis suits to Team Leader, which allows a TA and hard-wired items to be taken. Again, it really does come down to the purpose of the unit as to what you arm it with though. There are no set-in-stone rules. Perhaps the best thing to look at is your opponent's army - what is he using? - then check out the AP and rate of fire of the weapons available to you. Work out from there what weapons will be of most benefit, then look at how you can make them more effective at being beneficial.
Hope this was of some help to you.

There is a wonderful search item at the top of the page. I doubt you'd need it. Just look around. This has been discussed to death, resurrected, killed again, ran over with a tank, drank, excreted, resurrected, and killed again. Let's let it rest in peace.
