They don't "count as" Gangers, they are Gangers. They are not Bruisers though.I would expect that to be unchanged, a Specialist counts as a Ganger for all purposes, except they can have special weapons and have separate advancement table (random/roll).
In the Twitch Stream today Andy Hoare just confirmed that Djangar 'Gunfists" Custom Stub Cannons should have had the Sidearm trait, and that this will be set right in an upcomming Errata.
This looks like a stealth errata that should retroactively apply to everyone. Removing Single Shot certainly makes the weapon better and could justify the price hike (if we assume the previous price was adequate)
- Combi grenade launcher - frag: Has Ammo 6+ without Single Shot. Was Ammo * and Single Shot in Gangs of the Underhive.
- Bolter / grenade launcher (frag) combi weapon: Costs 60 (Rare 8) in Trading Post, but listed as 80 ("Common") for Goliath.
- Comment: Why more expensive for Goliath?
Compared to the Enforcer GL stun rounds, they also have a reduced long range (24" reduced to 18")Grenade launcher - Stun rounds: Got Rapid Fire (1). No ammo for Grenade Launcher has ever had rapid fire before.
- Comment: Looks like a copy-paste error from the new twin-linked Assault grenade launcher.
