The Benefits of Twin-Linked

by Eric

twinsThe main lesson here is that the lower your Ballistic Skill, the more using a Twin-Linked weapon will help.  This is something to consider when deciding if an upgrade is worth the points, or who you want to cast something like Prescience on.

Here’s a handy chart:

Chance to Hit
BS Single Shot Twin-Linked % Increase
1 16.7% 30.6% 83.3%
2 33.3% 55.6% 66.7%
3 50.0% 75.0% 50.0%
4 66.7% 88.9% 33.3%
5 83.3% 97.2% 16.7%
6 86.1% 98.1% 13.9%
7 88.9% 98.8% 11.1%
8 91.7% 99.3% 8.3%
9 94.4% 99.7% 5.6%
10 97.2% 99.9% 2.8%

Note that a similar effect happens with WS and Master-Crafted weapons, but this difference is diminished by the fact that WS “bands” work differently.
