After reading the XV8 in depth guide I have a question
also after consulting the rulebook / codex , since in most cases Codex trumps Rulebook
but codex is semi-outta touch (printed 2005 , reprint 200
Tau Crisis battle suits according to page 27 of the codex
says as follows "Crisis suits are jump infantry and are subject to the jetpack rules"
but the last line states "battle suits are design to compensate for recoil of light weapons and
do not count as moving when firing rapid fire weapons , however this doesn't apply to heavy weapons"
now here is the reason I am Confused.
Jet packs - Page 52 of black reach rule book "Models with jet packs have the 'relentless' special rule(see page 76)"
Relentless - Page 76 of black reach rule book "...Jet packers and bikers can advance while firing their weapons at full capacity. Relentless models
can shoot with rapid fire AND heavy weapons counting as stationary , even if they moved in the previous movement phase"
Can you Please clairify this issue for me
simple answer is codex trumps rulebook.
We need to go by what is in the codex.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
Really this rule only applies to one single weapon in our armoury, the plasma rifle. It just means that you can fire it once at 24 or rapid fire at 12 regardless if you moved.
- Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.
our jetpacks have relentless now
marker drones can JSJ now and still fire. but they still cost the same, so you probably still won't take them
Marker Drones are nice in the right place. I use them with my Shas'Els and they do very well. I give the El a target lock which means the Drone can mark a separate target to the El. The small mobile unit means it is very easy to hide the Drone and it is also very easy to get surprise line of sight to rear armour on vehicles or on hidden units.
I do not use them all the time but I do use them (my newest list does not use them) in friendly games (I stick to one list in club/competitive games).
Opponents tend to dismiss a single Drone until a unit is suddenly hit by a BS5 Hammerhead or it is hit by a BS4 Missile pod or FK squad instead of BS3.
XV8s cannot carry heavy weapons anyways.
While it is true, Codex trumps rule book, Crisis suits can't take heavy weapons anyway, so it's kind of a moot point in this issue :p
