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 modification may only be applied to pistol-sized weapons.
From Age of Rebellion and Edge of the Empire
An old assassin’s trick, this is the simple act of removing the front sight of a blaster pistol by filing it off. A common modification to holdout blasters (along with removing their serial numbers), filing down the weapon’s front sight allows it to be drawn more quickly from its holster, and reduces the possibility of it becoming snared on clothing. Unfortunately, while this modification makes for easy concealment and drawing, it also reduces the weapon’s accuracy, as it effectively makes it impossible to aim with any amount of precision.
