That is why it is a waste of points. If the falcon moves from the HS slot it will get used alot more practically, but the ability to carry 2 heavy weapons and an assault weapon will probably keep it in HS. ....even though a vendetta is fast attack...
A falcon can take 3 heavy weapon, but it doesn't matter. It's all about the strengths of the weapons and the distance moved per turn.

Additionally, if you have rangers/pathfinders (though if you have rangers that aren't pathfinders you're doing something wrong), you want them pumping out lots of shots. That means having them scout or be at the front of deployment, and then sit there and snipe, and get AP1 on 5+. : gratuitous joy:

Putting your snipers in a Falcon means putting a "sit back and snipe" unit inside a "sit back and snipe unit" that happens to have a small amount of transport capacity.

Actually a shuriken cannon is an assault 3 weapon.
Wow do I feel stupid. You're right. (Although, it only matters for the DR exarch, otherwise it's on a skimmer-tank, a walker, a monstrous creature, or a guardian heavy-weapon platform.)
