Star Wars – EDF-MW
Equipment Data File – Modification for Weapons
Weapon Attachments – The longer a Rebel lives with a weapon or suit of armor, the more likely it is that he will modify it in some way to increase its performance or otherwise better suit his tastes and needs. The following is a selection of common attachments and modifications that can be installed on personal weapons. Due to the very personal nature of customization, it is nearly impossible to catalog every possible modification a Rebel could make to his equipment.
It should be noted that, even taking a weapon’s customization hard points into account, there is limited space on even the largest weapon, and only a few spots where attachments can be mounted. For example, under-barrel attachments such as bipods and auxiliary weapons can only be mounted to long arms like blaster rifles and slugthrower rifles. In addition, using under-barrel attachments as an example, rifle-sized weapons can only mount one under-barrel attachment due to space limitations. Players and Came Masters should use common sense when choosing attachments and are advised to pay close attention to the attachment descriptions, noting where attachments can be mounted and what weapons they can be mounted to.
This attachment can only be applied to rifles, carbines, and light repeating blasters, and takes one preparation maneuver to set up.
From Age of Rebellion and Edge of the Empire
Little more than a pair of folding or collapsible legs mounted beneath the barrel of a long arm, bipods are used to stabilize awkward or heavy weapons to improve their firing characteristics. Especially useful when firing from behind low cover or from a prone position, bipods are typically used on squad support weapons, or by sharpshooters and snipers to better steady their weapons.

This site is constantly under revision, no blog posts are final as this is a work in progress place for me to develop my game settings and rules. Some posts might be placeholders for future content, so feel free to check back later for updated information.
