Can Noise Marines Hurt in Vacuo?

Go with me here ...

Noise marine weaponry fires, well, noisy shots that literally tear apart their targets by vibration.

Noise requires a medium to travel through.

Therefore, if one is fighting in power armour in hard vacuum, can Noise Marines actually do any ranged damage? :-)

Or do their weaponry have a psychic component to them as well that would still deal damage in vacuo?

Nope, they'd be rubbish.
This is why almost all space-bound firepower is kinetic.

I thought there was supposed to be a psychic component to the noise marine weaponry... but the primary source of damage would be sonic - and therefore useless in hard vacuum.

Bit off topic, but wouldn't lasers also work fine in addition to kinetic in hard vacuum?

I'd go with no, they're hosed in vacuum. No air means no medium to transmit, means no noise.

On the other hand, they'd be able to do stuff underwater still, as noise does ok there while bolt rounds...would not.

I agree: they'd be rubbish in a vacuum. It begs the question of whether their weaponry does have a psychic component. I just can't seem to recall where I read that?!

maby the vidrations travel through thw warp, thus meaning that they would work the same in vaccun, air and water. if not then they would likley work so well unnder water that it would be justified to fire them through a fire hose on the battlefeild.

allso they dont reduce in strenth as they get further away from the source
