    The list that I ran at a recent tournament had B&K, Edrone and two nexus hackers. There is plenty for them to do as well.

    I run one Nexus Hacker and Kerr-Nau in one list at the moment. I considered the E-Drone instead of the Nexus Lt Hacker, but I quite like the disabling programs the standard device has.

    Hmm... Personally, I think the only reason I'd go for the Nexus Hacker over the E-Drone would be if I REALLY need a Nullifier for some reason. Otherwise, the E-Drone offers more buff programs (Kaleidoscope is AWESOME), still has Brain Blast, and brings amazing passive benefits. Having the Ikadron round a corner during a Coordinated Order is so great when you can coordinate Hacking programs. If you don't expect to use many Command Tokens, you can also save a few orders by throwing out a few of non-targeting programs along with targeting hacks.

    Exile is silly good with the access to Pitchers now too.

    The E-Drone just offers so much! Especially when compared to the other EVO Hackers. We're S3 AND we have a gun! ;)

    How do people feel about him in a Rodok link? When would you take it over a Unidron link?

    I do like things like Blackout & Gotcha, they are handy! :) I'll have to experiment for certain, but the Nullifier has won me a few games when my opponents realise how much it shuts off and wrecks their game plan. Especially Classified Objs.

    Sometimes, I'll go to tourneys with one Rodok list and one Unidron list. I'll run the Rodoks if I'm concerned about isolation, loss of LT, or see a funky table with benefits from shotguns or Super Jump.

    EDIT:

    OR if I'm running Limited Insertion and not using Xeos or the Sphinx. ;)

    Why is my head suddenly full of ideas of ways to combine Kerr-Nau and my Sphinx

    Kerr Nau definitely replaces my Legate HD+ for my Sphinx lists.

    Considering how much you love the Unidron link, I can only assume this is massive sarcasm. In which case, well played. *slow clap

    All hail the mighty Unidron link!

    Been getting really good mileage out of Kerr-Nau in my last few games. Combos really well with the sphinx / missile noctifer / sniper malignos for taking out MSV troops turn one. Bioimmunity and hyper-dynamics has saved him a bunch of times from fast-moving camo or ODD infiltrators with SMGs.

    I took Kerr Nau to a tournament this weekend. He took out 4/5 of a Govad link on his own. Will play again!

    Yeah, played him once last week. He's exactly as disgusting as I guessed he would be, when I first saw him so I'm just gonna' repeat what I said again on their facebook page, upon the reveal of his profile:

    'Plasma Rifle was always reserved for extremely expensive models (with the exception of the CA TR REM), because it's such an insane weapon. A linked BS15 B4 Plasma Rifle that ignores armour from cover, for only 27 points, honestly sounds disgusting. TBH this looks like power creep and I think it's going to be a mistake to release him with a Plasma Rifle, rather than the Plasma Carbine. This isn't even mentioning his other amazing utilities, with the Pitcher and the Killer Hacker that comes with an Upgrade.'

    Seriusly, this guy is going to be a worse must-pick stable mark than the HMG Intruder was in N2, he's that good!

    I think he's awesome for his points, I agree. Competent hacker and shooter, definitely. On the Plasma Rifle, I don't think it's going to be a problem if they keep it to the relatively few units that have them now.

    Probably not! But then again I can't remember the last time I didn't take 2 Ikadrons in every list. They're arguably the best unit for their points in the entire CA!
