Hey, this might have come up before but I couldn’t find it after a cursory browse.

Some melee weapons, like the Gots cleavers, allow you to make an additional attack with this weapon.

Does this mean I could also make ALL my attacks with the cleaver, or just this one? I was beating on a unit of vehicles and the -1 would’ve helped, but the way I read it I thought only the one additional attack may be made with it.

Thanks!

You choose one weapon to make your attacks with, unless explicitly specified otherwise (as I seem to recall a melee weapon like that but it may as well be visions of 7th still clouding my mind)

According to the rules:
Seite 183: 4. Nahkampfwaffe wählen

You choose which weapon to use.
The restriction for the Monstrous Cleaver means that the additional attack Monstrous Cleaver generates can not be made with another weapon.
So you can use Monstrous Cleaver for all your attacks.
And you must use it for at least the one extra-attack it generates.

The restriction you mean is often the case with Tyranids:
For example on the Carnifex' Thresher Scythe and other tail-weapons, it is worded like this:
"Every time you fight with this weapon, you can make one (and only one) additional attack with this weapon."
But i think Drukhari don't have restrictions like that.

Poor ichor injector, left out and forgotten. ofc it doesn't give an extra attack.

You can also use your base 4 attacks with the flash gauntlet and then 1 additional attack with the cleaver

The only Dark Eldar with that exception is Lelith with her Mane of Barbs and Hooks.

Well technically you can make all of your attacks with the mane but that's just plain retarded.

Mane of Barbs and Hooks, also Lelith's Penetrating Blades and Monstrous Cleaver are the same in that you must do the additional attacks they generate with them, respectively.
But you can do all your attacks with them.

The Ichor Injector is the only exception i could find that has the restriction that you can only use it for 1 attack.

Shock Prow also has the one attack limitation.
