Attachments to extend the range on a carbine

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of an attachment to increase a carbine with medium range out to long or even extreme?  I'm open to flat changes or even granting talents (sniper shot, etc).

Thanks

Interested to see responses here - i went with a Dragoon pistol on one of my characters because it could be upgrade to a carbine but like the idea of a carbine that could easily be turned into a sniper rifle...

You are the GM? Because if so I would actually just make up my own attachment. 

HIGH VELOCITY BLASTER BARREL ADAPTER

Base Modifiers: Extends the Range of a Rifle or Carbine by one category. Adds an automatic Threat when used at Engaged range.

Modification Options: 2 Weapon Quality (Accurate +1) mods

Hard Points Required: 2

Price: 1450 cr Rarity: 5

A few ideas that come to my mind:

A) You could use the DDC-MR6 Modular Rifle (Special Modifications). It comes with a base range of only medium and is made to exchange attachments on the fly and has a lot of hard points. Just narrate it as a carbine/ carbine-like weapon.

B) Modify your armor with a range finder (Dangerous Covenants) to get a rank of the sniper shot talent.

C) Adapt the crafting rules a little bit to craft your own long range carbine.

Look at Cassian Andor's blaster from the Allies and Adversaries book for a weapon that changes between configurations.

Now that you say it, there is also the convertible heavy blaster pistol in Cyphers and Masks, but I am not sure if Ahrimon wants to use ranged (light).

I was going for using the DC-15A for my clone officer and having some options to swap out attachments between scenes but not back at their base for different parts of a mission.  I may just look into the armor attachment.

You have a hard-hitting weapon with Auto-fire and only ENC 3. If you want more range, just use the standard heavy blaster rifle (but be prepared to give up Stun Setting).
