I'm new to the Eldar - begun playing when the 4th ed was allready out. I'm hearing a lot of talking about how in the old rapid fire rules the shurikat was a lot better. I was wandering if some of the veterans mind telling me the old rpid firing rules and how did the shuricat do back then.
the shuriken catapult wasn't actually better, it's that everything else was worse :p
rapid fire weapons used to be able to fire only once up to 12" if you moved - this meant that the shuriken catapult with assault 2 could be used to lay down devastating amounts of fire vs the rapid fire rifles of like every other race in the game. now everyone can shoot 2x at 12", just like the shuriken catapult. the only benefit of having a "cat," as you put it, is the fact that you can shoot 2x then assault. this is actually a huge benefit in my opinion that makes it still better than rapid fire weapons who may either shoot 2x OR assault but not both.
Are you refering to the 2nd edition? If so then they used to have a 24" range and I think they kicked ass.
