    Arming the second Tac Squad on a low point list

    To support my all plasma 10 man Tac Squad in Kill Team matches, I'm building a 5 man Tac Squad.

    They'll be facing infantry, Skitarii and MEQs.

    Would a Heavy Bolter or Missile Launcher be of any use?
    I don't want to go CC with them, that's what I'd get an Assault Squad for.
    Also, I've got a Sternguard Squad incoming, but I guess I won't be using them with my 10 man squad too often 'cause that would probably bust the 200pt maximum.

    Missile Launcher to camp in the back. Drop the guy in terrain and hold tight.

    Update: It's gonna be a full 10 man squad!

    Missile Launcher? Do you say that because I asked about it or because it's good?

    Melta and Grav, as far as I can tell, aren't the first choice against infantry. Would an all-Flamer-squad be of any use? Better than one with a ML?

    ML is good because it is dual-purpose. Good against most vehicles and all non 2+ save infantry.

    Though if you're going full-size, go with ML if you play defensive but melta if you are assaulty.
