Ok my friend plays tau and some other people tell me things that contradict what he says so i just want to find out how many upgrades the suits can take, the normal ones not the stealth suits.
So basically each XV8 suit has three hardpoints, you can elect to take either one weapon or a support system on each of the hardpoints. If you take a twin linked weapon then it takes up two hardpoints but fire as one weapon with a re-roll for the to-hit roll. You cannot take two sets of twin linked weapons nor can you take three of the same weapon (I/E two of a weapon type for a twin linked weapon and a third weapon of the same type).
Hard wired is good because it allows you to take a greater variation of upgrades and weapons (no a weapon cannot be hard wired).
Shas'Vre's, Bodyguards, Shas'Els & Shas'O's can take special issue items.
XV8's can purchase up to 100pts of wargear
Hope that helps.
