Is the Boltgun Obsolete for Normal Tactical Loadouts?

  4. That's like asking, " if I eat an apple instead of an orange, will I still get Vitamin C? "

    Each weapon has a different role. You're not taking out a tank with a bolter.

    Bolters are still viable, and it depends on how you mod them / your style of play. The textured or stable grip, CQC barrel, and the ammo of your choice is the way to go.

    Plasma and melta weapons have a cooldown mechanic. This forces you to pop one target at a time, so they're not ideal weapons if your surrounded.

    Storm bolters allow for the "in your face" playstyle, and is favored over the bolter in rushing points. If that's your "thing", then the SB is a superior choice.

    you can vent plasma weapons early ..
    so their just as good as a bolter is when surrounded... infact maybe a lil better because venting takes less animation time than reloading a bolt gun.
    you can just go: tap tap tap vent ... tap tap tap vent... etc etc
