I mean after the health upgrade and the ethereal, firewarriors have like 5000HP of heavy_high armor and after the range upgrade they outrange snipers (not like snipers are a threat anyway thanks to pathfinders’ ridiculously long detection range). Even vehicles can’t get close as the range upgrade affects stealth suits’ fusion blasters (although they are referred to as “short” range weapons).
And it seems that it’s not enough that Tau have the best long range infantry after going on the Kauyon path, they also get a pretty powerful melee unit that can’t be danced thanks to the leap ability, deals more damage than the dreaded PSMs and you get to have TWO squads of it! Oh and let’s not forget about the eternal annoyance machines know as the drone harbingers that are made even more annoying after the armor upgrade.
I see now that Tau are becoming more and more popular these days especially in team battles as one of the team mates hold the enemies at bay while the Tau player techs fast to reach the Kauyon path then it’s GG to the fools who didn’t pick Tau.
I mean honestly, am I the only one who thinks Tau are op once they reach Kauyon?
