Droid parts with AIM as their primary stat

These include
1 sensory unit
2 motors
2 parts
2 cores

Also few items that he can use that are same as those that human characters use
Earpiece
Implant
Off-hand Power generator

Again all with AIM as primary stat


The ship protocol droid can't equip anything to the main hand weapon slot

Droid parts: motors, cores, parts, and a sensory unit. Cybertechs can craft these at lower levels (and top levels), you can find them at the GTN, and occasionally they will be a quest reward option. Your ship droid is unable to use a weapon.
Hieronymous - Sith Assassin (Darkness).
Bas - IA Sniper "Just because she's a Jedi doesn't mean you can't catch something. You know that, right?"

If you're talking about the ship droid, don't even bother, he's useless. Otherwise what the others said.

Yup. I believe you get Malavai on Balmorra. So no real need to search for droid parts, because again he's pretty useless in combat and is only meant to be a crafting tool.

This irks me a bit. Why do they have a slot you can't equip? Why not hide the slot?

Well, when you first talk to him he says he is not a combat model, that should give it away. In combat, he'll actually run up and punch at mobs. Early on, if you gear him, he actually makes an excellent healer. The ship droid gets all his heals real early, so if you feel you *have* to run with a healer, he can help you. But really, except for champions and a couple class story boss mobs, you really don;t have to use a healer. Turn on all Vette's skills, and watch stuff die real fast.

If you are talking about T-7 then he can equip a blaster. Only the ship droid is forbidden a weapon.
