I magnetized my Venom's guns so that I can remove them as they get destroyed, and point them at the enemy when I fire.

Another Dark Eldar player complained when I was shooting behind the Venom. I said they are clearly turret/pintle mounts, which is 360 degrees. He said that's only because I didn't glue them. I pointed to page 72.

Who was right?

I've used 180 for both. ETC clarification support this option too. 360 is a bit too much in my opinion.

The top-mounted weapon I'd probably agree at 180 degree fire arc, maybe even 270 but I can't see it being 360 as the gunner would then be in front of the gun! I don't see any evidence that the underslung venom cannon is intended to swivel. Seems to be a fixed position and would probably count as hull-mounted. with a 45 degree arc. Compromise at 180 for both maybe.

See, I can definitely envision the gunner hopping on the hood and shooting to the ear, probably teabagging the driver.

As for the lower one, to me it's definitely in a swivel mount that's only hampered by an artificial peg assembly that likely wouldn't exist on the real deal.

This was debated some time ago as well, you might be interested in that:
