Q: What counts as a plasma weapon for the Ulumeathi Plasma Syphon? (p62) A: All Plasma weapons, as well as Eldar missile launchers firing plasma missiles, burst cannons, starcannons, all Tau pulse weapons and any weapon described as using ‘plasma’ as its effect or in its special rules.
Kroot Weapons don't count

I ask this, because when reading the pulse rifle entry i noticed it mentions Plasma, does this mean a Plasma Syphon affects pulse weapons?
Yes but the reason it affects other pulse guns and not kroot rifles it that the kroot us it to propel convestional rounds while stuff like pulse carbines and burst cannons use it to propel plasma. hope this cleared up something.

Pulse = Plasma
Anything propelled by plasma would turn into plasma due to heat, therefore the rounds become small plasma charges and are effected by the plasma siphon. The "slug" would become molten slag.
edit: also if you read the faq it says all pulse weaponry/ plasma weaponry. If it USES plasma/pulse it is effected, it does not have to actually fire plasma. Kroot rifles in fluff use Pulse(therefore plasma) to propel their rounds. The faq should have spelled it out enough on kroot rifles/guns.
