If you are to follow the rules of the parent codex which the stormtroopers are from, then yes, hot-shot lasguns have replaced hellguns.

IG stormtroopers use the stormtrooper entry in the IG codex (together with all the special rules and weapon stats). Inq stormtroopers use the stormtrooper entry in the Inq codexes.

So IG stormtroopers use hot shot lasguns and Inq stormtroopers use hellguns.

I think the FAQ mentions the same thing.....

Incorrect.

Inquisitorial Storm Troopers in either the Daemonhunters or Witchhunters books have hellguns, as detailed in the parent books. They are a seperate unit entry in themselves, contained in the book.

They do not use or refer to the IG codex in any way for Inquisitorial Stormtroopers.

Which is exactly why I said "if you are to follow the rules of the parent codex" as I don't play WH/DH, just guard. If the WH/DH codexes have their own entries for =][= stormtroopers already in them, then I don't understand wh the question is being asked.

The question, as I read it was simply asking if DH/WH Stormies get upgraded to use Hotshot Lasguns.
The answer is Hell no.

OP asked about hellguns in the title, using WH units in his unspecified army, he is thinking about stormtroopers, and then asked if they use lasguns or the hot-shot version of lasguns. It is all worded very poorly and if I only added to the confusion then I apologize.

You can't use hotshot lasgun on inquisitorial stormtroopers. If you do so, they would be point-efficient, which obviously would be unacceptable. </sarcasm>

How do you get the impression? The codex entry didn't change, did it?

If taken from Codex: Wotch Hunters, they are equipped with Hellguns.
