This Illegal modification is derived from the Projectile Appendage system available for noncombat Droids. A Rocket Arm is essentially a hollowed-out Droid arm in which the servo control has been replaced by a short-range rocket engine and fuel. The arm's fine control is eliminated, but the Droid can point its arm at a target and fire. The arm detaches and flies at the target, detonating the remaining fuel on impact. Rocket Arms are unguided projectiles without targeting computers.
This Illegal modification costs 2,000 credits and installation requires a DC 20 Mechanics check. Failure on the Mechanics check means the rocket might not detach properly when fired, exploding and dealing its damage to the Droid and all targets in a 1-square Splash radius. The Rocket Arm is considered to be a Heavy Weapon that deals 3d8 points of damage upon detonation, with a 1-square Splash.
