Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Scum and Villainy
Upgrade Type: Weapon Upgrade
Upgrade Point Cost: 1
Any Blaster Weapon can be fitted with a Pulse Charger. A Pulse Charger forces more power into the blast chamber, producing more powerful shots at the expense of lost accuracy. This Upgrade causes a -1 penalty on all attack rolls with the Weapon, but the Weapon deals +1 point of damage per die. Thus, a Sporting Blaster Pistol with a Pulse Charger imposes a -1 penalty on attack rolls and deals 3d4+3 points of Energy damage on a hit. A Blaster with a Pulse Charger has only one-half the normal number of shots from a Power Pack.
