Equipment Data File – Modification for Weapons
Telescopic Optical Sight
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.
From Age of Rebellion and Edge of the Empire
This attachment can only be applied to rifle sized weapons Ranged (Heavy) weapons.
Popular with marksmen and snipers, this attachment consists of a long tube attached to the top of a weapon with a number of precisely ground lens elements protected by an impact-resistant housing. The resulting scope magnifies distant images for long-range shooting. This attachment can be used on any ranged weapon (with the exception of one-use weapons like grenades, or weapons like flame projectors that would not realistically benefit from a sight).
