Hi guys,
have been out of 40k for a little while, just trying to get back into 40k 8th edition now. I don't have a copy of the full rules or any codexes / indexes etc, just the free core rules primer PDF and some various googling.

How many attacks does a space marine scout get in close combat now, assuming he is armed with bolt pistol and combat blade?

In the old rules it was 2 attacks (1 base and +1 for having 2 close combat weapons)

From what I understand pistols can be fired in the shooting phase even if they are engaged / within 1" of enemy models. Does that mean they don't have any other effect in close combat?

But does he get a +1 attack for having the 2 weapons or something?

Or does the combat blade automatically give 2 attacks?
I read somewhere that chainswords give +1 attack, does that apply to combat blades as well?

I am just trying to figure out if you get any bonus for having the 2 weapons.

Thanks in advance.
