X-wing 1.0 Astromech Chopper question

Recommended Posts

I plan to use an Gold-Squadron Y-wing as a mine-layer in a casual game of X-wing.

I wish to use Chopper: 

Action: Discard 1 other equipped Upgrade card to recover 1 shield.

 The other upgrades on the Y-wing are:

Bomb load-out (adding bomb-slot), Extra munitions (so I can drop 2 mines), Proximity Mines.

After I have placed both proximity mines; can I then use the upgrade cards of extra munitions and bomb load-out for the Action of Chopper?

Yup. You can also do it beforehand. And note that both em and loadout get a munitions token each which can be discarded to chopper too.

Nice! The same for the BTL-A4 title?

It's worth noting that, with regards to the BTL-A4 title, you can't use Chopper to discard it unless you've lost a shield.  He can't eat anything if you're at full health.

I had a friend use a Chopper fairly well during Store Championship season.  He had an oddball 4-ship Rebels toolbox; Chopper Y-Wing with BTL-A4 & TLT for some firepower against low agility, Tarn with M9-G8 for massive rerolls on the Y-Wing, Biggs (still a decent tool for forcing an opponent to split fire, and Jess Pava.  The Y-Wing had a lot of punch in the opening joust, and if it took damage, it could start to fly away and eat upgrades and still be throwing TLT back.  At any rate, it was a lot more interesting than the Flight Assist Astromech lists I got wicked tired of.
