dual wielding accurate

Darzil is actually incorrect on this.

You only add the Accurate for the primary weapon, as the secondary/off-hand weapon's trait are only applied when you've successfully spent the 2 Advantage from your attack roll to have the secondary weapon hit.  Since you've already rolled and resolved your advantages/threats, you wouldn't get to apply Accurate from the second weapon.

Over on the EotE forum there's a stickied thread of dev answers, and I believe this is one of the items listed where a dev confirmed that weapon traits that modify the dice pool or its results, such as Accurate, Inaccurate, and Inferior, don't apply if they're on the secondary weapon.

A weapon that granted, say, an advantage, would give that, but only after you'd spent the 2 advantage to hit with the second.

Here's the thing... I'm not sure that's the case.

Going by the normal order of operations in resolving a combat check, you'll have already tallied your total Advantage/Threat before spending any Advantages to activate a hit with the secondary weapon.

So this means that the Superior trait on an off-hand weapon wouldn't give you the extra Advantage, but by the same token a weapon with the Inferior quality wouldn't give you an extra Threat.

I think this is the one I was remembering. "But if your second weapon has a laser sight that gives you an Advantage on a successful attack, then if you're successful and you trigger the second hit, then you gain the additional Advantage as well."
