I don't think it merits a MC, since it wasn't even a barrage template
weapon. I don't know what it was like in 1st ed. though. However,
it's weapon was inferior to the shadowswords, which merited a deathray,
not a MC. Also, I don't know any non-barrage weapon which was changed
to a barrage weapon in e40k.

I am interested in the justification people have to turn the braincrusha
into a barrage weapon, because several people have made the suggestion
Am I thinking about the wrong unit?
