There is also an upgraded Bolter round that was created by the chief scientist of the Emperor's Children Legion during the Horus Heresy.

Fabius Bile created the Kraken Bolter round that is to a Bolter round what a hollow point is to a bullet.

Not novels man, it was originally a war/strategy game that eventually expanded it's brand and got into other forms of media.

The original Space Marines bro.

When you get into WarHammer 40k you will start to view these frauds like the GEARS and Halo Spartans as fucking jokes.

Jokes.

Spartans would get stomped by a scout marine.

Hmmmmm, I'm thinking you're onto something. The only thing that I'd be concerned with is the armor advantage a Spartan has over a Scout Marine. I'm sure you know but just in case other don't, a scout marine only wears armor on his upper body and head. The reason for this is because they often undertake the stealth, reconnaissance operations for the Legion and carrying bulky armor would make that job difficult obviously.

The Astartes have their own versions of assassins though. Marines who exhibit a violent and murderous streak get secluded and placed into specialized squads called Moritats. They are essentially space marine assassins trained in the unique ways of stealth/silent killing each legion has.

The Raven Guard can literally blitz people from the shadows. It's fucking nuts bros. I'll detail them when I decide to get into each Legion's specific ability.

"Regular" Space Marines in 40k are pretty legit. 8-9ft tall, superstrong, multiples of some organs if I remember right. Then you start getting into the "chapters" and shit gets wilder.

Depends on the legion. The Space Wolves just give their guys power armor if they survive training. No bothering with a typical scout marine.

In prior canon yes but new canon is different. Space wolves absolutely have scout marines.

They have about 15 organs of which about 2 of them are doubles of existing human organs. the rest perform a function vital for transforming a baseline human into a Space Marine.

The Space Marines were Legions first. Some Legions like the Blood Angels were organized in such a way that many of their formations and the way they divided themselves included "chapters" but they did not function at all like the "Chapters" you're referring to.

Space Marine Chapters came into existence during the Second Founding where Roboute Guillman Primarch of the Ultramarines decreed that the remaining loyalist legions be divided into successor Chapters with each one becoming an autonomous military entity. Previous "Chapters" within Legions did not at all have this Autonomy. They were as with all Astartes absolutely and totally under the command of their Primarch.

LOL a true fan. Yup.

Wolf souts serve the same role as scouts though I'd argue they are much better fighters being veterans as opposed to neophytes.

To be clear, the Astartes of the "ancient" Legions are considered more potent than modern marines. Feat wise most of that list is Pre-Heresy, which tends to refer to the Legions and  not the Chapters.

I mean basically we're talking about current Chapter Masters that wouldn't even be able to hang with a first captain of an old Legion.

Sigismund versus Dante? LMAO. Sigismund would fucking murder that man and Dante is considered one of if not the greatest living Space Marines in the 41st Millenium.
