It took along time before I tried the AM class and I tested the pistols and now I wonder why anyone would pick bolt pistol over plasma. They seem to do the same damage. Low tier orks die in 3 hits with both, later ones has armor so I guess plasma is better. Plasma has like 5x rof and has no recoil, and can charge. In short bolt pistol is inferior to plasma, why choose it? Btw even worse why pick the true grit and use boltgun in one hand? Boltgun is inferior to all other weapons, maybe worse than bolt pistol. Having less accuracy and maybe less rof sounds stupid. What reason is there to not pick plasma pistol?
Does anyone find the stealth bolter sniper gun useful in ext? I find myself running out of ammo all the time. I heard 1 mag is just enough to remove chaos armor, another to kill. While lascannon will kill with 3 shots and has 4 stored. The sniper also has crazy long reload time. I'm sure it's fine in versus but not here in ext. Maybe it's good as combo with meltagun, but never on it's own.
Btw the most effective weapons seems to be those with highest damage per attack. Hammer, melta, lascannon gives the most kills most of the time and they are of course superior against chaos compared to others.
