A Tripod is an attached three-legged stand that facilitates the use of some Rifles and Heavy Weapons. A Tripod carries with it a set-up time of 3 Full-Round Actions. This process can be lessened to 2 Full-Round Actions with the assistance of a second character.
A Tripod counts as a mount for any Weapon that requires it (Such as a Heavy Repeating Blaster or E-Web Repeating Blaster). A Weapon mounted on a Tripod is treated as one size smaller for the purposes of being wielded. In the case of Autofire-only Weapons that require a mount, a Tripod also allows the Weapon to be Braced. While mounted on the Tripod, the Weapon is considered immobile.
