Welcome to Librarium Online!
what do you guys think the best combination of weapons on a XV8 battlesuit is?
by the way if you have pics of your tau armys commander could you send them to:
because i cant decide wat to get for my army commander yet and the pics might help me decide
the 3 best are in order:
-twinlinked missile pod,plasma rifle and HW multitracker (for shas'vre and higher only)but its a bit expensive
-missile pod,plasma rifle and multitracker
-fusion blaster,plasma gun and multitrakcer
I use plasma rifle, missile pod and multi-tracker, but mostly because people told me that was the most effective >_>

I don't think there is one undisputed best configuration for the xv8 crisis suit but each configuration has its own purpose and is specialised to fill this role such as AI, AV, or AHI. But point for point in a general purpose role I would have to say it would be the fireknife i think, the missle pod and plasma rifle with a multi tracker I think.
i like to have a wide varity of weapons in my army i think the only weapon i don't use is the flamer because if your that close you can kiss your bs away. i give my guys a range and use them that way (like missile pods amd plasma rifle or burst cannon and fusion blaster) and if it is my commander i always give him 2 weapons shild generator and a hw multi tracker because i want him to stay alive
tau is the best shield gen are not worth it.And actually burst cannon is not worth it too,you could get the same thing for cheaper with stealth,the 2 best weapon are missile laucnher,plasma gun and fusion gun(even though it is not as important as the other 2)
Plasma / Fusion / Multi tracker, 3 shots at 12" with AP1 & 2, and a shot at 24" with AP2 kills most things it hits and denies armoue saves to everything, and will kill armour as well.
Somewhere on this forum a person dedicated a post and talked in detail about each and every variant of crisis loadout there can be, with pics to I believe. Run a search and look there, its an awsome thread as it also goes in depth on the various tactics that can be used by each loadout.
The only honorable options left to we combatants is seppuku or semantics...which amount to the same thing really.
