    So I know that with the Traktor Muls have the option to use Guided MRL weapon modes. I know that this provides a +3 bonus to BS (and another +3 to BS if the target is 8-16 " away) if the enemy model is targeted. Are there any prerequisites for a model to become targeted? I thought there was but can't find anything written about it on the wiki.

    So you need to first hit someone with a Forward Observer (or Spotlight them with a normal Hacking Device, HD+, or AHD) to put them into the targeted state.

    Then you can rain death on them.

    I should note that Targeting someone via Forward Observer usually means that your FO is getting shot at. Hackers with the Spotlight program are a bit better, as the program doesn't need Line of Fire to actually Target someone, but instead you need to spend the orders to get the hacker or a Repeater within 8" of the thing you want to Target.

    But this makes Targeting someone order-intensive, so it's not typically done. If you are packing a lot of FOs in your list anyway (Flash Pulse AROs are great to stop a rambo for cheap), like Nomads and Ariadna, though, it's not a bad idea to include a Guided weapon remote.

    It requires a lot of FOs and a lot of orders, both something ariadna has in abundance. It's a useful string to your bow but don't depend on it as your only strategy

    Very much this.

    It's one thing to have a GMLbot as an option to use. It's good to have as an option or your backup plan.

    It's quite another to have the GMLbot as your primary attack! It's terrible to have as your only plan.
