    This! The last 2 games I played i was in LoL. Unfortunately my main opponent knows exactly who my Lt. is most of the time.

    After doing something like this in ISS and now IA, I'm wondering how this would go over in certain missions. This would have to be a Haris that is moving towards objectives. It's all about getting the hacker to it. But the Tinbot B is a great benefit against KHD or anything hackers actually.

    I would probably want my AHD in a 4 person link, at least, for SSL2 (for catching Stealthy people in repeater ranges). And, there is a better hacking candidate to start on top of objectives in the first place....

    But, it is a solid enough idea - although WIP 12 could lose face - to - face rolls if your opponent can apply a mod.

    I'm a bit confused as to which units can form fireteams:

    • A Fireteam must be composed of troopers belonging to the same unit, or of those that the Sectorial Army List specifies are able to do so. Some special Fireteams can ignore this Requirement, as specified in their description or in the Sectorial Army List.

    So outside of special fireteams such as Haris: 2 Wu Ming + 1 Clipper or 1 Brawler, I cannot combine, say Druze and Wu Ming in a Duo or Haris, right?

    In Ikari it's impossible to get that Druze KHD into a Haris with a Wu Ming Tinbot Deflector then?

    For the special fireteams, one model in that fireteam needs the appropriate fireteam rule (so for Wu Ming it'll be the Brawler or the Haris Wu Ming), then the other members can be whatever profiles you want.

    Outside of the specifically listed units, other units are forbidden (so no Druze or Tankos with Wu Ming).

    The Druze KHD shoots her pitcher, the Brawler AHD uses Spotlight while enjoying the benefits of the Tinbot and then your Tanko ML, Brawler MSR light stuff up. The Druze E/M LGL can even spec. fire reasonably well on targeted enemies with BS 18 (medium range), BS 15 (long range) and BS 12 (very long range) due to X-Visor.

    It's okay, though it's a lot in investment into that particular trick. I think the Druze Duo (or even solo) could accomplish much the same thing if you just swapped the KHD for an AHD, and you'd get an upgrade to WIP13 as well.

    I have nothing against the Brawler AHD in the Haris, but I don't think it's a capable enough hacker to justify dedicating your extremely valuable Haris slot to provide it a Tinbot. I'd much rather see a Wu Ming HMG, HRL, or even MULTI Rifle + LGL in the team.

    I run the same core link and am quite happy with it.

    Agreed on the AHD - do you miss SSL2 though?

    And lastly thanks for the reasons why you don’t like the Doc - I never realized Wu Ming don’t have cubes!!! That changes a lot :/

    Cheers, mate.

    I'm not super fussed about the lack of SSL2 on the Brawler AHD, as it's there mostly as a cheap specialist in a Haris (17/.5 is much cheaper than the WuMing FO BSG...but also much worse). Not sure if I've ever had it actually hack in ARO, so lack of SSL2 hasn't come into the equation for me yet.
