Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Scum and Villainy
Upgrade Type: Universal Upgrade
Upgrade Point Cost: 1
One piece of Equipment can be built into another as an Upgrade, but it is impossible to place a larger piece of gear into a smaller piece- you can't cram a Blaster Cannon into a Lightsaber. Dual Gear can act as either piece of component gear without penalty. For example, a Glow Rod that has been Upgraded to include a Hold-Out Blaster Pistol can illuminate or shoot, as the user desires. Normally, such Equipment can't act as both pieces of Equipment at once.
You must pay the full price for the piece of Equipment being added to the primary object as Dual Gear. If either piece of Equipment requires a Power Pack or other energy source, it must have its own (Items combined with this modification cannot share Power Packs or other energy sources).
