So even with target locks only one model could shoot at something, since it counts as 1 unit?

And that one unit could be a riptide or hammer head from a squad of 3 now getting tank hunter and +1 BS and ignores cover and twin-linked. If you daisy chain it right you can do some pretty gnarly stuff.

Yeah but it's still only 1 out of all of them. Not like you could split all the shots, you could shoot two units max.

Every model that has a target lock can split fire. So a unit of 3 riptides with target locks could shoot three different targets, and same with a unit of three hammerheads, or crisis suits, or broadsides. You could potentially shoot every target in an opposing army with all of the aforementioned special rules.

is that a rule specific to tau? because the USR for split fire only allows one model from the unit to split its shots.

Target Lock doesn't grant split fire.

"Target Lock: can shoot at a different target than his unit.

I guess part of this would be.... It's only units from the Cadre correct? What can you build that does this? Like the Gladius/Lions Blade BARELY works at 1500. It seems you have to go suit crazy, which really means the Riptide/Broadside formation or the Retribution Cadre, correct? What are we looking at points wise?

I built a list yesterday that was 1500 points for a hunter cadre and optimised stealth cadre. Plenty of units to shoot with but I didn't take the buffmander in it. If I had I could fit even more stuff.
