So I've finally gotten a copy.  And the biggest complaint?  STILL no stats for a Bayonet (This was also brought up in the Beta).  Or even mention of the Entrenchment tool used as a weapon (I'd probably have that just be a primitive axe at least, based on some Deadliest Warrior eps with modern Special Forces demonstrating why they're trained to use them as weapons and consider them more useful than their combat knives at that).   But Bayonets?  Seriously none?  They're mentioned in numerous places as a pretty common thing.  Yet nothing.

Now, a Spear makes for a pretty obvious comparable.  But again, really?  Not included? Major missed opportunity.

Bayonets are represented by the Melee Attachment upgrade. Treat them as a spear when attached to a lasgun/shotgun/what have you, and a knife when detached. As for entrenching tools, they're an Improvised weapon, or a Sword without the Balanced quality if you're feeling generous.


"Oomans are pink an' soft, not tough an' green like da Boyz. Dey'z all da same size too, so dey'z always arguin' about who's in charge, 'cos dere's no way o' tellin' c'ept fer badges an' ooniforms an' fings. When one o' dem wants ta lord it over da uvvers, 'e says 'I'm very speshul so'z you gotta worship me', or 'I know summink wot you lot don't know, so yer better lissen good'. Da funny fing is, 'arf of 'em believe it an' da uvver 'arf don't, so 'e has ta hit 'em all anyway or run fer it. Wot a lot o' mukkin' about if yer asks me. An' while dey'z all arguin' wiv each uvver over who's da boss, da Orks can clobber da lot."

Wow, in my search for them, I completely missed the upgrade in the list.
