equipment falls into several categories: flight systems, sensor
(both hand-held and integrated), and miscellaneous systems.
Installing a piece of equipment on a mecha
-be it a weapon
or some other integrated system-requires a Craft (mechanical) check (DC 20). The check is made after investing an amount of time determined by the mecha
's size: Large 10 minutes, Huge 30 minutes, Gargantuan 1 hour, Colossal 3 hours. If the weapon
or system occupies more than one equipment slot
on the mecha
, multiply the installation time by the number of slots it takes up. An integrated weapon
or system can be removed in half the time with a successful Repair check (DC 20).
In addition to a general description, each piece of equipment includes the following information:
The number of equipment slots
needed to install the equipment. Some pieces of equipment are limited to specific body slots, as noted here.
How long it takes to activate the piece of equipment (usually an attack action
A range listing indicates the maximum distance out to which the equipment functions. If a range increment is listed instead, it represents the distance at which accuracy begins to decline, as per the rules on range increments.
Unless otherwise noted, equipment with a range increment has a maximum of ten increments.
Target or Targets/Effect/Area:
This entry starts with one of three headings: Target, Effect, or Area. If the target of the component is You, you do not receive a saving throw
(and there is no saving throw
entry for the piece of equipment). If a component is a weapon
capable of autofire, it will be noted here.
The amount of time a piece of equipment continues to operate before it needs to be reactivated, or how long its effect lasts. A duration
of persistent means the equipment functions until the mecha
is destroyed (reduced to 0 hit points
) or the mecha
's operator turns it off (usually as a free action).
If a piece of equipment calls for a saving throw
, the type of saving throw
is listed here, along with the effect of a successful save.
The level of license required to purchase the equipment legally.
