Firstly, I am a player from China.Therefore, ignore my grammar mistakes plz.sad.gif

Actually, If I call for a HWS when I use IG, and aim it to shoot an enemy squad, the team, except the one behind the heavy bolter, will instantly run to enemy. Therefore it is so easy to do melee on HWS and disarm it.

I'm not sure if it is a bug or something. But if I choose another race, this won't happen.

That bug is long time known and discussed long enough. No one knows why they didn't bother to fix it in the latest patch.

It's a bug that Relic has ignored for some reason. The unit is basically broken at the moment.

But since the units are still counted as a setup team (and therefore have the highest pathing priority) you can tie up sents or vehicles in melee and they cannot get away, right? I mean, it's raw abuse but if you've got a broken unit the best way to get it fixed is to make the abuse game-breaking enough that Relic HAVE to deal with it.

IG HWT is fucking amazing pure imba. You can abuse it like np. Just focus fire it and those 3 guys will gang rape the target and it will be so shocked that it wont do nothing then scream and try to fight off those 3 muscular guys while the bolter pours the goodness.

bC does his best with bugfixes and is by no means a coder. The immortal sarge change should have been reverted to just put them back to what they were.

Good thing that there is work-around with stop key to still make it usefull. It's not a bug - it's a feature!

True, but when that hwt targets those tacs at the edge of it's arc instead of the fc running to it's face what do you do? Simple! you target the fc and he gets forced off np... no wait hwt models run to his face and he swings his sword once and hwt desets up.

Target the close combate unit, then immediately press the stop key and hope the hwt shoots at the close combat unit.
It's stupid and needs a fix, but if you rly wanna use a hwt, you can use this.
