What do SW (or SM in general) have to stop overwatch? So far I found these:

Assault Launchers (1 CP): ASSAULT LAUNCHERS

Shock and Awe (1 CP) LAND SPEEDER STORM or ADEPTUS ASTARTES SHOCK GRENADES

Suppression Fire (1 CP) Whirldwind

But who do have assault alunchers and or shock grenades? I have no idea! Is there a list?

And murderus Hurricane SW psykick power.

The Land Raider doesn't have to charge to use the Assault Launchers stratagem. You are just using the stratagem in the Charge phase.

So, my question would be what are you charging that you are worried about overwatch from? Your opponent can only use it once per turn unless Tau (?) and you can trick them to waste it on a chaff unit, if they don't they are tied up and can't overwatch anyway.

My opponent is an ork.

Last time he got 8 out of 9 of his kustom mega zappa. He hit with 4 of them and away my smashcaptain went. Unlikely, but it happened. Never mind the rest of the guns.

Boys shoot a lot. Also flashgits shoots very well...

They compensate for bad BS5+ by having a lot of shots. BS6+ overwatch is surprisingly dangerous with orks.

Or the old school way. Charge something with a unit that’s tough like a rhino/impulsor or chaff , like a cyber wolf, and then charge your nasty unit into them. They either wont waste the overwatch or it won’t matter.

There's also Primaris Suppressors. They don't even need a stratagem to do it, it's one of their abilities.
