    Venom cannon and barbed strangler

    Hey, I was just wondering if you give a tmc two venom cannons, and it says they become twin linked, do you get 2 twin linked shots, or four twin linked shots?

    If it's the first solution, I'll give my carni a venom cannon and a barbed strangler.

    Thx

    First para page 30 "A tyranid that carries two of the same ranged weapon symbiote counts them as twin-linked" Barbed stranglers now have an AP value so can now score penetrating hits. So the BS & VC combo sounds good.

    Twinlinked guns count as one gun so you get 2 shots.

    This has been beat to death on other forums. If you buy 2 venom cannons on a MC, you get one twin-linked venom cannon. Same with the other guns.

    FYI: The monstrous sprue only has a VC and a BS. You will need to do some conversions if you want any other gun combos.

    What I really want to know is can you equip a warrior with 2 deathspitters and get one twin-linked deathspitter out of it? It certainly sounds like it!

    Unless the codex specifically says that a Warrior may be armed with only one shooting weapon, I don't see why not. Even in the old codex one could put two shooting weapons on a Warrior. It was just pointless because only one could be fired per turn. However, in the new codex having two of the same shooting weapons on a single creature makes them count as twin-linked, and twin-linked weapons count as a single weapon for the purpose of firing.

    Ya, it's a little fuzzy.

    3 relevant quotes from the dex:

    p. 30 "A creature with two or more ranged bio-weapons may only choose to fire one of them per shooting phase unless it is an MC, in which case two weapons may be fired."
    p. 30 "A Tyranid that carries two of the same ranged weapon symbiote counts them as twin-linked.
    p. 37 "Warriors with two ranged weapon-symbiotes may only fire one per turn."

    So if your two weapons behave as one twin-linked weapon, then you should be able to fire that one twin linked weapon with a warrior. Unless only being able to fire one means it no longer behaves as part of a twin-linked pair. Quite confusing!

    If the weapon counts as a single twin-linked weapon that you can fire it.

    Since the rules are so fuzzy, couldn't someone do some rules lawyering and claim that if you have two of the same weapon, both of them are twin linked?

    Yes. And that has been done on other forums. Check dakkadakka, they go back and forth for like 6 pages. But I think GW will errata this one pretty quick. I mean, why would it cost X points for a VC, then the same amount of points for a second one as well as the twin-linked rule on two guns. They always make you pay for something extra in this game. But with the warriors, you ARE paying extra simply for adding twin-linked to an existing weapon. So maybe that one works...
