Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Rebellion Era Campaign Guide
The shoulder-mounted PLX-2M is derived from Merr-Sonn's Clone Wars-era PLX-1 Portable Missile Launcher. Designed to punch holes through Heavy Armor, the "Plex-Twoem" is also a particularly effective antipersonnel Weapon. The PLX-2M can be fired in direct mode, or it can be fired in heat-seeking mode or gravity-activated mode (Providing a -2 penalty to the Reflex Defense of all targets of a particular type: character, Droid, Vehicle, or artillery). The miniature proton warheads in the PLX-2M's Arakyd 3t3 Missile detonate on impact, damaging all targets within a 3-square Burst radius.
When you make an Area Attack with a PLX-2M, you make a single attack roll and compare the result to the Reflex Defense of every target in the Weapon's Burst radius. Creatures you hit take full damage, and creatures you miss take half damage. A target with the Evasion talent takes half damage from a successful attack, and no damage if the attack misses.
The PLX-2M Portable Missile Launcher holds six Arakyd 3t3 Missiles and can be reloaded as a Full-Round Action. Replacement Missiles are available in packs of six, costing 350 credits and weighing 8 kg. The PLX-2M weighs 48 kg, but because of the lancher's built-in microrepulsorlift, the Weapon does not count against Encumbrance when it is carried as a character's active, drawn Weapon.
