What is the advantage of a Bullpup Lasgun over a M36 Lasgun?
The Bullpup Lasgun has a higher Availibility, less Range and ROF, the same Rld and offers no bonus when fired in one hand, like the Carbine. Ok, it weighs only 3.5 Kg, but a meager 0.5 Kg doesn't justify a higher Availibility, when most other stats are inferior.
Please don't argue that Availibility is only a logistic modifier and not a way to measure it's effectiveness, because it's used in that way when you determine additional standard kit items during regiment creation.
So why should we pay 8 points to equip Elysian Drop Troops with their most iconic gun and why did FFG didn't use Bullpup Lasguns to equip the Elysian 13th "Helldivers" in the first place instead of Combat Shotguns or goes this salute to a freelancer?
