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 blaster rifles and blaster carbines.
From Age of Rebellion
Commonly applied to blaster rifles and carbines, spread barrels are often used by members of the Rebel Alliance. Designed with the kind of close-quarters combat encountered in buildings and starship corridors in mind, this attachment replaces a blaster’s stock barrel with one that is shorter, bulkier, broader, and equipped with a built-in flash hider. Using a stepped array of prismatic crystals, located at the end of the barrel just behind the crown, and a reconfigured Galven pattern, this barrel splits the blaster’s beam into a number of smaller beams that exit the barrel in a spray or fan-like pattern. Used in a tightly packed space, such as a ship’s corridor, these beams can strike multiple targets with one pull of the trigger. The trade-off for this, however, is a reduction in the weapon’s range.
From Edge of the Empire
Commonly applied to blaster rifles and carbines, BlasTech’s “Scattergun” Spread Barrel is a common modification among spacers and fringers. Designed with close-quarters combat in mind, this attachment replaces a blaster’s stock barrel with one shorter, bulkier, broader, and equipped with a built-in flash hider. Using a stepped array of prismatic crystals located at the end of the barrel as well as a reconfigured galven pattern, this barrel splits the blaster’s beam into a number of smaller beams that exit the barrel in a spray pattern. Used in a tightly packed space, these beams can strike multiple targets with one pull of the trigger. The trade-off for this, however, is a reduction in the weapon’s range.
